Hi, quick question. Tried to publish a new site, but saw it listed as "homesteadcloud.com" in the URL (it doesn't show up by the way). Might that be because I published it with Sitebuilder desktop? Also, how can I fix that?

What is the site name? All new sites are intended to be used with the new Websitebuilder. I can convert it to a Sitebuilder site if you like.

Hi, I made it with the desktop sitebuilder and wondered why it isn't saving the site with the old url (homestead.com)?

That is ok. If you give me the site name, I can convert it to a Sitebuilder site for you, so everything will work using desktop.

Also, how do I transfer pages between sites - there use to be this feature, but I no longer see it? I appreciate your help.

We really don't have that option any longer. You can copy the page from the Sitebuilder desktop folder on your computer, but also need to copy the images and anything else.

Thank you. That's too bad, it was a very useful and needed tool that was very efficient for us newbies.  Shame it's gone.  How do I copy the page from the folder?

What Windows version do you run? It will determine where your folders are located.

I also have a site listed as homesteadcloud.com but would like to change to homestead.com. Can you please help me?

Stefan 8576, If I convert the site you will lose any work that you have done, and you will be reverted to our older Sitebuilder program. All new sites are created with our new Websitebuilder and have the .homesteadcloud.com URL. Once you register a domain, the homesteadcloud will go away and be replaced by the domain name.

No problem, I haven't done much yet. I signed up since I liked the homestead domain. I would appreciate very much if you could change that for me. My sitename is: svenskacasino.
