Can't Access Squarespace - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Squarepsace issue login solution: uncheck the "save password" box... seems to be having issues with saving passwords... then you can login...

I've been working on it most of today and now all I can get is the spinning wheel. The homepage and the site I'm building load just fine, but the editing and settings interfaces will not. I even tried two other browsers.

Loggin into Squarespace - Nothing happens, I get the wheel spinning forever and not loading the dashboard.

Unable to log into my account so I can continue building my website... I have spent HOURS trying to get my site up and running and now I can't even log on... the "log on" button shows up at the top of the screen but when I click on it my screen goes dark and nothing happens. Either get the site up or refund my money

have two websites built with squarespace and both are down this morning. when I type the url into a browser I get a page of text jibberish on both and it won't let me log into my account either!

Same thing is happening to me. No login button on top right. I am in Los Angeles on Time Warner cable internet. Does not seem to be a back door either. Does anyone know of a back door to get in?

NO luck yesterday. Having problems uploading and editing photos - lots of error messages after waiting and waiting. Successful earlier today, but photos are not showing up in the tweets I pushed out... Frustrating, time wasting, but HOPING they are working as quickly as possible to SOLVE this problem! Send them a HELP ticket so they know what's going on out here!

J Sheree Johnson · 19 December 2013 - 17:55

Constant issues with uploading and editing photos. I seem to have this problem a lot with Square Space. Has anyone else had this problem? As well as with the blog.

Rania Amine · 19 December 2013 - 16:30
Canada · Shaw Communications

Squarespace has been barely accessible for almost 3 days now. This is absolutely ridiculous. So many wasted hours. I've almost pulled all my hair our, as I had a deadline to get something done and thats been pretty much impossible. The worst is that they've been telling us its "solved" so many times now, only to post another update a few minutes later that it isn't. Hours I understand. But DAYS?

Enrique Mata · 19 December 2013 - 16:22

I need Squarespace up and running like it used too. Please, who ever created this DDOS attack, stop. I have a very important project to complete...

Peter Blomert · 19 December 2013 - 15:34

Hell, why does anybody set up these long DDOS attacks against a service-provider like Squarespace - not easy to understand!

Glad I signed for a full year of professional service. So... will I receive a rebate equivalent to the sales I have lost? I'd hold my breath but I think I'd end up passing out before that happened.

I suggest everyone go an blast them on their facebook page www.facebook.com/squarespace

Lauren Lloyd · 19 December 2013 - 14:43

Yikes! It's been on and off this afternoon after being down earlier this week, too. Losing work, time and money here. Hopefully it's back up and solid soon!

How often does this happen? I'm came back to SP yesterday to launch a new blog - maybe I should reconsider.

Jeffrey Parish · 19 December 2013 - 14:21
United States · Cox Communications

WTF?! I am very close to switching service. Really? down at this time of year? When my customers can't get to my site I stop paying for the service. Sad, because i llike the platform.

Jessica Sherman-Prince · 19 December 2013 - 14:13
United States · Time Warner Cable

I understand the frustrations. I'm also experiencing the connection problems, as well as major formatting disruptions on my Testimonials page. This marks perhaps the 7th or 8th similar formatting issue (let alone repeat connection time-outs in a year's time. I've put so much effort into this site, that I'd much rather Squarespace resolves these recurring issues than rebuild elsewhere.

Wayne Butt · 19 December 2013 - 14:12

I'm one week into a trial. Found isitdownrightnow.com and glad I did! Because after only one week, I know it's not just the squarespace trial... This is too frequent! If I sign with sqarespace, it will be a month to month. Then again, you can add a lot of work in just a month to have to abandon it if this keeps up :(

Chris Creswell · 19 December 2013 - 14:10

I have been using squarespace for a couple of years and have never encountered these issues before. Let's hope they can get it fixed permanently soon.

does anyone know how long it was down for last time? can i expect this will take a long time?

of course, i just redirected my domain to squarespace today. love this.

Dammit, and I was getting down on a gift blog too:/ I hope it goes back up soon.

United Kingdom · Be Un Limited

What! Again!... I'm trying to build a personal site in the 'free trial' with a view to signing up for paid account, I'm not sure I want to now! If I was paying for this and couldn't access my site I would be pulling my hair out!!

3 Strand Studio · 17 December 2013 - 06:27

woohooo!! FINALLY. squarespace.com and my sites are back up and running!

Michael Semer · 17 December 2013 - 06:22
United States · Time Warner Cable

Still down. After having told me I needed to update my means of payment (lapsed credit card). Ironic, because it's sorely tempting to migrate to another service after this kind of recurrent nonsense.

Mark Roden · 17 December 2013 - 06:13
United States · Phonoscope

Seems like its coming back now. What a way to start things off, still building the site and then all this. Serious thoughts about the pathway forward after all this mess.

I just spent over an hour writing an important blog post on my SquareSpace and when I went to post it, I was told it was unsuccessful. I tried going back but no luck. I just lost everything! I'm so upset.. This is not the first time this month this has happened.

Unable to connect to any of my Squarespace 5 sites. Noticed this about 1:15pst today. Squarespace 6 servers seem reachable. Unable to reach using ATT or TWC. My zip: 90041. Seriously rethinking Squarespace, under which I've built and am maintaining many sites, because it is seriously unreliable.

Jonathan Quigley · 16 December 2013 - 19:07

Ive been down every time Ive checked today since 5pm(est), trying to put up pictures from an event and its making me seem late and unprofessional. Not happy with SquareSpace right now

Down for me as well. Access to my webpage is impossible, tried going to squarespace directly - reloading several times gets me to the front page, but nothing works.

I can't reach main squarespace site but my squarespace sites seem to be working. I don't understand why this site can see squarespace but I can't.

Whenever I go to my squarespace website, I get this notification:

"There doesn't seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started. Need more help? We got it. You can create a wp-config.php file through a web interface, but this doesn't work for all server setups. The safest way is to manually create the file."

What's weird is that this is a Squarespace site, not Wordpress! Weird...

Been having trouble loading the site a couple of times this past month.. Just purchased 2 annual subscriptions, c'mon Squarespace, figure it out!

Dmitrii Andreyev · 16 December 2013 - 14:20

Not only is the downtime unacceptable, I now find out that certain templates are what they call "depreciated" which means that they no longer support or improve them. This forces you into a remodel of your site.

In the past 30 minutes my website is down for no reason. Nor can I log in. This is serious. I am dealing with pre-publication work as well as international posting, and to be blunt, Squarespace is losing me potential funding. Do please resolve this as quickly as you can. Ian Bradley Marshall

Yes, time to mirror your servers indeed! To lose editing capabilities for a few hours (and having a frozen version of the site live) would be far better than having no version of my site live.

Square Space is currently down agin. This is 20th time square space server went down. I can not believe that they down have secondary server to keep services up and running. Shame on Squarespace! ti's time to switch.

Megan Lane · 8 November 2013 - 14:57
United States · Optimum Online

Wow. Also just realized customers cant view my site either. I thought it was just the admin that couldn't edit or make changes. Hope I don't lose any potential clients because of this..they might just think I took my website down. As a photographer, losing potential clients is never good. What a bummer.

Nov 8th 5:54 eastern standard time- Square Space is currently down for me, too. I just spent a lot of time writing stuff up and editing and before I had the chance to save it..BAM!
