squarespace stole my domain and now even though I am using a different host when people type in my domain in their browser address bar it goes to a squarespace error message.

When I signed up for the plan I WANTED it said; pay the yearly fee
total but on a monthly basis would be $20 per Month. I clicked continue and was charged $192.00 for a full year and was never given the monthly option.

So that was a mistake..

Today I have been trying to get an answer to 1 question about the domain name. Each time I type the problem I get a different person that responds and I have to start over..and then a different person and I have to start over again and again..etc. This going on 12 hours now.

There was supposedly a 5 day grace period I was still available for for changing a misspelling in the domain name. Well that ended because now it is the following day and I figured that was why I was getting the run around to make me unavailable for that 5 day grace period change with out having to cancel and resubmit and start the site over from scratch.

THIS IS 24/7 service as advertised..I don't think so..

Every step of the way has not been what was [read more...]

Squarespace offers you lots of busy time to fix and tweak things but they are slow, so painfully slow at development and implementing new feature and many of them are just shoddy and look nothing like the other services out there.

They promise the moon and deliver something far less. I'm tired of trying to improve a sows ear. Not worth it unless you are paying someone big money to do your sight for you.

Squarespace is fantastic.
I'm a designer who uses Squarespace daily, an in-fact Squarespace is THE ONLY CMS I'VE USED for over a year now. In the past year, I've helped over 30 clients ranging from start-ups, and 'mom & pops' to large multi-national corporations. With Squarespace there's a bit of a learning curve, but it really depends what you want to do with the platform. If you want to set-up a site immediately and make it look professional, then you're good to go. If you want a cutting-edge design that different from anyone else's (like what's pictured on the Squarespace Examples pages), then just hire a Squarespace designer to do it for you. It's just common-sense. To have an amazing and original website on ANY PLATFORM takes the help of an experienced designer/developer to help you. As far as hosting pricing, you CANNOT compare Squarespace to your shared C-Panel hosting solution. Nothing can compare.

The future of blogging and web design.
Ignore the developer trolls that say Squarespace isn't flexible enough. As a normal person (i.e., not developer), Squarespace has been amazing for me. I built the site from scratch by myself. I don't have a great eye for design though, so I worked with a designer to create a completely professional and custom look. My website looks awesome. Business is great. And I NEVER have to worry about getting hacked or my server crashing. Highly recommended for those who want a great site without a great effort.

Good for advanced intermediate users
First, the support is stellar. I always get a reply in ten minutes. As for the product, the learning curve is steep and then suddenly it just clicks. From then on it's a wonder. The WYSIWYG tools are intuitive and fast. Or I just go in and write full HTML/CSS and I never have to worry about the hosting. Never down. Always fast. Well worth 10 bucks a month.

No much to say, there were good and passionate, they made money and they began to sink.
It's a poor and simplistic design process. Friendly for the newcomers. Pings are slow and uptime is correct. So many hours lost for nothing: your website is only running on their software.
The worst is when you want to leave: fully proprietary, no full backup, no exportation feature. Sorry, yes, you can export: in .txt
The best way to export from Squarespace: take screenshots of your website and rebuild it somewhere else. Isn't that fun?

If you look for a 3 pages only site, ok. More than that, your work will be lost if you want to switch to somewhere else.
But it's quite expensive for 3 pages.

VERY VERY VERY Expensve and juts not worth it.

I have years of programing knowledge and there is too little that you can do with these people. It is for the newbs, and even they have the brains (i hope) to kknow that it sucks. With these people you get the bare minimum and not much more than that. The designing of the site is slow too!!! SSOOOO slow. Not reliable either but they wont admit to that.

there are better options.......

It is too slow in the design process and in our user's experience. It's not reliable.

I'm sorry I built my site on it.

The BASIC,BASIC, BASIC stuff is fine, but if you want to improve your site in any way at all..YOU will need A BOTTLE OF BULLETS...Read carefully, this could hurt you.

SquareSquareSpaceace targets newbies to web design. The template are easy, and set up is quick. But any real improvements in your site will take programming knowledge...Any anyone with web design knowledge doesn't have time to waste with SquareSpace's limited pallet....and Newbies can't Help newbies..Its like the illiterate leading the blind.

After 3 months with SQ, this will hapepen to you.
