I understood that web sites, built with Websitebuilder, would not need to use Cloudflare to appear HTTPS secure, on Chrome and other browsers.
What is the status of this feature?

Hello walc

This feature doesn't have an exact date we can give you, but is expected to release very soon.

At this point I just need some clear information before I will do something wrong. Please advice: I am used old Desktop version and replaced nameserver with cloudflare. When I will done with new web with WebsiteBuilder and will need switch my old domain to this new web, do I need change nameservers again to homestead?

When you switch to the new Website Builder, you will not have to immediately switch your nameservers back, but when we launch our SSL option, you can.

Just checking on the status of my site showing as HTTPS on Chrome and other browsers.  I have been using the desktop Sitebuilder for years, but this summer I bit the bullet and completely rebuilt my website using Websitebuilder.  I understood that it would show up as a secure website without having to jump through the Cloudflare hoops.  Is this feature still in the works?  Any estimate on when it will be functional?

Hello Sheila6044

We are still working on the automatic SSLs for Website Builder sites. We don't have an exact date yet but it is definitely a priority. We are just working out any bugs we find before we launch it, to provide the smoothest transition for you all!
