I hopped onto Homestead.com to check website stats and my "your websites" page has my newest sites suffixes changed to "homesteadcloud.com" from "homestead.com, and the link to web builder is different. Am I being forced into the cloud? Will I still have a copy of my site on my hard drive? Thanks in advance.

Hello Karinjg

For almost 2 years, all new sites have been created in Website Builder, which is our newest builder. It sounds like you created a new site from Sitebuilder Desktop, which isn't something we have used in many years. It actually isn't supported anymore. Sitebuilder Plus was the cloud-based system that we used for many years before switching to Website Builder. We unfortunately cannot use Sitebuilder Desktop for new sites, so you would need to go through the cloud version that you see in Websites Manager.
