my current website is grandpascastles.com the creator did not use wordpress and has gone out of business and I cannot edit the site. Go Daddy has the domain and SSL. I’m looking to update the site and not sure what to do any suggestions? I want to add free to book software to the site but don’t think I can with the current platform.

First, can you get into the back-end of the platform you’re on and are you the owner of record for the domain? If you are in control of these elements, then you can call Godaddy (phone number is on their website) and have them help you migrate your current site over to their managed WordPress hosting and just build out a WordPress site. That way you’ll be able to add any tools you wish, such as booking apps. If you need help, you can find WordPress freelancers on Fivver to help you every step of the way, but ALWAYS ensure that any platform that is set up on your behalf lists you as the owner of record and with the billing direct to you, not via a service provider. This way, you always have control and don’t find yourself in this situation again. I hope this helps, good luck!
