Squarespace now offers domain registration starting at $20 per year
website builder square space today launched a new feature that allows customers to purchase a domain name directly from its site before using its design tools to put everything together.
Squarespace says that at launch it will offer over 200 top-level domains, starting at $20 per year. Depending on the desired domain, this price can reach $70 per year.
Users can connect the domain to their Google apps for personalized email, and registration includes a WHOIS privacy protection plan. It will also offer SSL certificates and domain transfers for free, but these features are coming soon.
The launch comes a week after Etsy just unveiled its own website builder, Pattern, which also lets its seller community buy and manage custom domain names. However, Pattern uses a third party partner to make domain registration easier, and a WHOIS plan costs an extra $3 per year.
Squarespace Domains are available today.
Editor’s note: The previous version of this article stated that plans start at $20 per month. We regret this error.
