Can I mandate the required password attributes for users when they register as members on my site?

More specifically can any of these password attributes be enforced:

  • Lockout Duration: 30 Minutes or Until Administrator Intervention
  • Password History: 10 Previous Passwords
  • Unsuccessful Logon Attempts: 6
  • Minimum Characters: 8 Characters for Standard Users, 15 for Service/Generic and Privileged Accounts
  • Complexity: Enabled, enforcing a combination of Upper and Lowercase Characters and use alphanumeric and special characters. 
  • Maximum Password Age: 90 Days
  • Minimum Password Age: 1 Day

No. On Squarespace, users have control over their password. It can be between 6 and 40 characters, with any combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. You cannot apply limitations or enforce security best practices.
