When I save my page, it saves but when I type the address into my browser, it goes to an older version of it and not the updated version.

Did you update your site after you saved it? Saving your site saves a draft of the site in your account. Updating your site applies your changes to your live site. This allows you to work on your site and only put it live when you are ready. However, updating the live site is a step people often miss.

Remember to click the yellow "Update my Site" button after saving your changes.

If this does not solve your problem, please let me know.

Oh I thought Updating it would make me buy it because I didn't buy it but when I go to Update My Site it asks me if I want to buy a URL.

No - you are given the option to buy a domain each time you update your site, but this is optional. Clicking the button simply applies your changes to your live site. Thanks for letting us know that this is how you understood it. This will help us explain it more clearly in future.

Hello iwatch,
If you make any changes to your site in the Site Builder you will be able to immediately be able to apply these changes to your published site by clicking on the yellow "Update Site" button. You can then go to your published site and refresh the page and you will see the changes applied to your site.

Kind Regards,
Emmy
