Do I own my Squarespace website?

Recommended Posts

I am considering using Squarespace to create my website. What would happen if Squarespace closed? Would I lose my site or could I take it with me and host it elsewhere?

As far as I know you continue to own your site. If Squarespace were to close, hopefully they would give us all some notice so we could use their export features to pull our content down for use elsewhere.

You will definitely continue to own your domain. In fact if you decide to leave squarespace you can take your domain with you.

The content on your site you can export to an .xml file, so you'll lose a lot of the script-driven features and css, but you will at least retain a copy of your core content. The templates are squarespace's products, so it would be a bit odd if you could just steal their styling and take it with you.
