In 2016, we launched an updated Google Sites (referred to in this email as "new Sites") designed to help you create websites without programming experience, optimize across mobile and desktop, and co-build with real-time collaboration. In 2017, we announced that we are replacing the previous Sites experience, referred to as "classic Sites", with our new Google Sites product. Since that announcement, we've invested in the new Sites experience by building top requested features.
We've identified that you own one or more inactive classic Sites that have been inactive for more than 24 months. You must take action before November 2020 if you want your inactive websites to continue to be available to visitors.
Additionally, starting November 1, 2020, site creation will no longer be available in classic Sites and will only be available in the new experience.
What do I need to do?
Start your migration today. We've created a new Classic Sites Manager to help you with this transition.
- ⇨ Use the Classic Sites Manager to take the following actions for your inactive website(s):
- Delete your website(s) if you no longer need them.
- Download your website(s) if you want to store an archived version of your website.
- Convert your website(s) to the new experience if you want your websites to continue to be available to visitors.
- If you take no action, inactive website(s) will no longer be available in Google Sites and will automatically be downloaded as an archive and saved to your Google Drive starting November 2020.
