Duplicating a site

You can make a copy of a Squarespace site by duplicating it. Use this guide to learn how to duplicate a site and what content copies over from the original.

To duplicate specific content within the same site, like pages or blog posts, visit Duplicating pages and content.

You must have Owner or Administrator permissions on a site to duplicate it. The contributor who duplicates the site will be the new site’s owner.

Before you begin

It’s not possible to duplicate:

Keep in mind:

  • Duplicating a site doesn't change the original site.
  • Changes made to the copied site don't sync to the original site.

Duplicate a site

To duplicate a site:

  1. Go to your Account Dashboard.
  2. Click on the site you want to duplicate.
  3. Click Duplicate Website.
  4. The duplicate site appears as the first site in your Account Dashboard. Its site title will end in “(Copy).” It may take longer to generate the duplicate depending on how much content is on the original site.

Next steps:

  • The copied site starts in a free trial, like any other new Squarespace site.
  • You can upgrade the trial to paid service when you're ready.

What copies to the new site

Duplicating a site copies the site’s content, structure, and design settings. Elements that don’t copy over must be set up per-site, like contributor permissions, or only work for one site at a time, like domain subscriptions.
