- Each Squarespace website requires monthly hosting payment based on the package selected, monthly vs yearly payment selection, and number of pages.
- If you have multiple Squaurespace websites you will need to pay the full monthly or yearly hosting cost for EACH website.
- If you have more than 20 pages or posts on your website your plan will automatically be upgraded from the Personal plan to the Business plan, please see pricing and details here. Read more about Squarespace page limits and other content limits here.
- Squarespace recommends not having more than 400 webpages on any individual SquareSpace website, even though its Business Plan package allows up to 1,000 webpages per website. Read about Squarespace content limits here and in their searchable help section here.
Maintenance & On-going Services
Squarespace has extensive video and text based tutorials describing how to manage every part of your Squarespace website. However if further web design, graphic design, or webdevelopment work is needed after the completion of your website we are happy to offer our services by-the-hour or as an on-going retainer package.

Squarespace hosting costs & Go-live process - (all Packages)
All service packages require you (the client) to pay for SquareSpace hosting to make the website go-live. This requires entering your credit card information in the SquareSpace admin area and selecting on of the SquareSpace hosting payment plans (monthly or annual). Once payment has been submitted you will have the option to easily register a new domain name directly with SquareSpace. If you would like to connect a domain name you already own from a 3rd party company SquareSpace provides instructions on how to do this or you can pay AllinWebPro to connect your domain name for you, it normally only takes about 1 hour or $89 for us to connect your domain for you from an external company.
Once payment is submitted and a domain name is connected to SquareSpace your website will begin appearing at the connected domain name location publicly.
