Our Plesk Website Builder site is apparently no longer going to be operational next month. What do we need to do to switch over to BoldGrid? Do we need to rebuild the entire site or can we use the same content and convert it to BG?

To help with the transition we do have our Support Center article to assist you "How to Remove a Website Published Using the Premium Website Builder"

Yes, due to the differences in the how these software are designed, you can not move a Premium Website Builder website to a BoldGrid website. However, BoldGrid makes it easy by providing more content to get you started, rather than just a theme that you have to build content into yourself. You simply need to customize the appearance settings, text and photos to make it your own.
