Convert Classic Google Sites to New Sites

Google Sites conversion tool
Google introduced a new version of Google Sites a couple of years ago featuring a modern look and simple website creation tools, but until recently there was no way to convert a “classic” Google Site to a new Site.

Now you can use Google’s automatic migration tool to transfer the content of a classic Google Site to a new Google Site.

The tool automatically creates a draft of a classic Site in new Sites. This new draft has the updated look and feel of new Sites.

When you’re ready to publish your new Site, it can be published to the URL of the classic Site (which replaces the original Site), or you can choose a new URL.

Your permissions and content remain the same.

We expect Google will phase out the classic version of Google Sites sometime in 2019, so we advise you to soon plan on converting your classic Google Sites to the new version.

Information and resources for accessing and using the new Google Sites are available on our website.
