How Do I Take Down a Squarespace Website?

Last updated on October 1, 2022 @ 9:18 am

PRO TIP: If you are planning on taking down your Squarespace website, there are a few things you should be aware of. First, if you have a paid subscription, you will need to cancel it before you can delete your site. Secondly, deleting your site is permanent and cannot be undone, so be sure you really want to do this. Lastly, make sure you export any content or data you want to keep before deleting your site, as this too will be lost.

There are a few reasons you might want to take down your Squarespace website. Maybe you’re moving to a different platform, or perhaps you’re just taking a break from having an online presence. Whatever the reason, taking down a Squarespace website is easy to do.

If you’re planning on taking your Squarespace website down for good, the first thing you’ll need to do is cancel your subscription. You can do this by going to your billing page and selecting the ‘Cancel Subscription’ option. Once you’ve done this, your website will be inaccessible to anyone who tries to visit it.

If you just want to take your Squarespace website down temporarily, there’s no need to cancel your subscription. Instead, you can put your site into ‘unpublished’ mode. This will make it inaccessible to anyone who tries to visit it, but all of your content will still be intact and you can easily publish it again at any time.

To put your Squarespace website into ‘unpublished’ mode, go to the ‘Settings’ tab and select ‘General’. Under the ‘Site Status’ section, change the status from ‘Published’ to ‘Unpublished’. Once you’ve done this, click ‘Save’.

Taking down a Squarespace website is easy to do, whether you’re planning on doing it permanently or just temporarily. Cancelling your subscription is the best way to ensure that your site is completely inaccessible, but if you just need to take it down for a little while, putting it into ‘unpublished’ mode will suffice.
