How many sites can I host?

Hello,

I am thinking of signing up for the service, but before I do I would like to know if I can host multiple websites on one account, or would I need an account for each individual site?

I know that one domain will be the primary domain, but will additional domains just be sub domains of the primary domain, or are they their own stand alone websites?

Thanks in advance,

Jose

Ouch! I think I'll stick with my hosting service, they don't charge per site. As many sites as I want for the same fee as SquareSpace. Glad I found out before I committed.

Yeah! I was bummed out...and I almost left my current hosting service. Unfortunately I found out the hard way, built a site on squarespace only to find out that I could once create one site per paid account. I was bummed. Maybe in the future they will add that feature for "true" unlimited sites. But for now, I cannot recommend.

Keep in mind that you're paying for a website & support package, not just a hosting plan. So when you pay for the service, you're getting an all-in-one hosting/software/support stack. There's no way Squarespace could charge $20/mo, but support 20 websites on the same plan.

It would be great to get some sort of high volume site discount like they had on the previous (V5) version of Squarespace. I'm optimistic for something there! But I certainly don't see the one site per account rule changing.

Hi Jose,

You can host an infinite amount of sites on Squarespace. However, you can manage multiple sites under one email address.

In regards to the domain related question, you can map multiple domains to your Squarespace site. However, the domains will redirect/rewrite to the domain that is set as the primary domain.

Hello

Thanks for the quick reply. I signed up for the $20 a month service and created a site.

But when I create another website its a trial site, and it asks me to upgrade the account again.

Am I doing something wrong? I was told I can host multiple websites on one account, do I have to pay a subscription for each one?

Regards,

Jose Chambrot

Hey Jose,

Each account you sign up for is a different site you are creating. Therefore, you will need to purchase a plan for that account. Sorry for not being clear in my initial answers.

I agree, I've been working on Squarespace for the last 2 months having seen "Unlimited Pages" as pages I could host. I understand you don't want people going crazy reselling but I thought I could at least host a secondary portfolio page or something. I thought "oh thats clever, you can limit reselling by having one account to manage them all" but no apparently I'm incorrect. This is really disappointing, I like Squarespace but this definitely makes me think if I want to commit to it. Its quite expensive for an individual page. For 30$ / month I can get quite a bit from other services.

I can understand it both ways, but I wish there were a way I could create more sites on my account. As a webmaster I need to create examples of what I can do in Squarespace. I was able to do it in version 5, but not in version 6.

The moment SquareSpace starts offering multiple domain sites to be able to create individual sites, they will be able to start competing against Wordpress.On the meantime, it can turn really expensive.

I have 20 small websites with Wordpress that could perfectly run on Squarespace but at the end of the month I pay USD 20 for hosting all those sites and the same with SquareSpace would cost me: USD 160.

Note: I am not making any money from any of my blogs.
