You can build a website with Squarespace by subscribing to a billing plan. The Personal and Business plans are ideal for websites, while the commerce-focused Basic and Advanced plans offer additional features for online stores. You can subscribe to these plans on an annual or monthly billing cycle.
You can also purchase domains through Squarespace, reserving your site with a domain parking page. All annual Squarespace plans include a free custom domain for the first year.
Before you begin
Note: We periodically change our plan offerings to best group features for our customers. The plans on this page reflect our current options for new subscriptions and upgrades. If you’re a continuing Squarespace customer, you might have signed up with an older plan. We continue to support older plans, but you might be interested in upgrading to access newer features.

- Billing plans apply to individual sites only. Squarespace doesn't offer billing plans for multiple sites at this time.

Squarespace Domains (domain only)
You can purchase a Squarespace Domain to reserve a URL without building a full site. The domain will redirect to Squarespace's default parking page, a standard minimalist design with your domain in the center and a Squarespace logo in the top corner.
This option is ideal if you’re not ready to create a website but want to claim a space on the web. Once you have a domain, you can add a custom email address through G Suite by Google, purchase more domains, or switch to a trial to begin building your site. Domain pricing varies by TLD.
The Personal and Business plans offer a feature set ideal for most modern websites. You can use a template to lay out your content, add pages to navigation menus, upload galleries of images, and more. You can also manage a small online shop without all the bells and whistles featured in the Commerce plans.
The Personal plan is well-suited to smaller sites with one or two contributors. If you're an individual or small group looking to display work, write a blog, sell a few products, provide information, or establish a basic web presence, the Personal plan should meet your needs.
For more robust sites, the Business plan provides unlimited pages and contributors. If you need extensive content or a team of editors or admins, the Business plan is an affordable way to create and manage a site.
This plan is also a good choice if your primary goal is to display your work or business and you also want to sell products on a small shop page (for example, if you’re an artist selling prints or a band selling merchandise). The Business plan uses the same store design and checkout flow of the Commerce plans, but with simplified features.
Commerce plans come in two tiers, Basic and Advanced, suitable for smaller retailers new to eCommerce and larger stores with advanced marketing and shipping needs. If selling online is the primary goal of your site, this is the right option for you.
The Basic plan supports smaller businesses and eCommerce retailers who don't need advanced integrations for shipping or marketing. If your site is focused on eCommerce, you can sell unlimited items and build your online store on our commerce-focused templates.
For larger eCommerce stores that process many orders and need advanced shipping and marketing options, the Advanced plan offers a full set of state-of-the-art selling tools. Integrate with Xero for taxes, Shipstation for label printing, and use built-in carrier calculated shipping rates to give your customers the best, most affordable shipping options.
Annual or monthly billing
All Squarespace website plans are available in annual or monthly billing cycles so you can pick an option that works best for you. On an annual billing cycle, the average monthly cost is lower, and you can register a free custom domain for a year.
Domain subscriptions renew annually.
