As of Dec 2020, Squarespace had more than three million subscriptions. Its users employ pre-built website templates, and a variety of drag and drop widgets to add elements such as text and images. Its developers also create custom templates that are sold to users. On-screen instructions walk users through things like search engine optimization and setting up eCommerce. Its services are in direct competition with WordPress.com, Wix.com, and other digital website building agencies.

Squarespace was initially built for creating and hosting blogs. Ecommerce features, such as integration with Stripe for accepting credit card payments, were added in 2013.

In 2014, more commerce features were added; a mobile version of the service was released; a separate facility was added for developers writing custom templates and features, and a logo-creation app was introduced in partnership with icon designer Noun Project.

In 2011, Squarespace was upgraded to version 6, with new templates, a grid-based user interface, and other enhancements.

Version 7, which went live in 2014, replaced its coding backend with a drag and drop interface and added integration with Google Workspace (formerly G Suite and Google Apps for Work) and Getty Images.

In 2016, Squarespace started selling domains, putting it in more direct competition with GoDaddy and added an analytics dashboard and PayPal integration.

Site Group Violates Terms Of Service

The company lets people build websites with easy-to-use templates and provides a domain for groups, including those like the National Policy Institute, a think tank where white nationalist Richard Spencer is president and director.

Other hateful websites hosted on Squarespace included Identity Evropa and Radix Journal, which called for ethnic cleansing in a series of white supremacist essays. A petition calling for Squarespace to stop hosting these hateful websites reached 58,241 signatures.

Squarespace said it gave certain website owners 48 hours' notice that they would be kicked off its platform.

Events point to the online backlash against hate groups following the deadly rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, where neo-Nazis and racists clashed with counter-protesters. Neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer was removed from GoDaddy, then Google, Twitter, and elsewhere before slinking off into the darknet, where it then lost its CloudFlare protection. Losing the protection opened the website up to cyberattacks that took it offline.

Across the internet, tech companies have been stomping down on hate groups, including Spotify removing "white power" music from its service, and Apple Pay and PayPal cutting off websites linked to white supremacists. Before the Charlottesville rally started, Airbnb had kicked out white supremacists planning to stay at homes through its service.

Squarespace's decision comes after months of activists asking it to remove hate-filled websites. The group of websites that Squarespace plans to take down directly violates their terms of service.

Original Idea

original ideaoriginal idea

When Casalena, who grew up in northern Maryland, came of age, so did the Internet. At the turn of the millennium, the man who’d go on to found Squarespace was just starting college. He wanted to build himself a home on the Internet, but in those days, the tools necessary to build a website were rudimentary and fragmented. And that was frustrating. Casalena decided to build a better solution. He created software to bring together and unify all of the disparate tools necessary to build a website under one digital roof.

In Apr 2003, while Casalena was still a student at the University of Maryland, he started coding the foundation of what would become Squarespace. Today, Squarespace is an online tool for building and publishing websites. It supports more than 1 million websites for businesses, entrepreneurs, creatives, and individuals. Despite the company’s impressive growth, in those early days, Casalena says he didn’t think that he was building a business. He was fixing his own problem.

Casalena borrowed $30,000 from his father to buy computer servers to host the Squarespace code. For the first three years, Casalena ran Squarespace alone. He wrote the code, educated and interacted with customers, and managed marketing, if buying $100 worth of Google Adwords can be called “marketing.”

However, Casalena wasn’t the only one trying to build a website in 2003. He slowly became aware that the service platform he was building for himself would be useful to other people, too. In Jan 2004, Casalena launched the first iteration of the tool he built as a service, and Squarespace was born.

By the time graduated from college, Squarespace was making more than $1 million in revenue. He moved to New York City, where he had the servers installed, and over the next few years, Casalena grew the business and the team to include about 30 employees. In those first few years out of college, Casalena and two other team members rewrote the code, improving the college dorm room version and making it scaleable.

The goal of Squarespace is to empower anybody to be able to build, maintain and grow a beautiful, smartly branded website. Prices start at $5 a month to maintain a simple cover page, an eCommerce page costs $26 a month to maintain and more complicated websites cost as much as $70 a month.
