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,

Honestly, I understand the gripe, sort of, but I see the sense in what SS is doing. Squarespace is effecting a new approach to web building and hosting. The differing approaches between WordPress and Squarespace are miles apart, and not only in terms of the way sites are built.
What Squarespace provides is a far tighter package between builder and finished product, and one that you, as a webmaster do not have to keep looking over your shoulder wondering which hacker is going to DDOS you next, or worse, e.g. silently hijack your site as part of the WordPress botnet, or silently hack the database to start producing blackmarket bitcoins, etc. And this does not even get to the negative SEO ramifications of common sub-hosted sites.
Yes, there are a few critical features I dearly wish Squarespace had, like the ability to do complete archives of existing site projects so you can easily recover from any inadvertent errors. But what they have is far better than WP, IMHO. So rather than trying to be successful with a large group of websites, my recommendation would be to just host one or two instead. That is, one or two sites which are perhaps better planned and marketed with a much sharper focus.

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