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.

Follow-up on my earlier post today, the "spinning circle" problem is happening because the main Squarespace login URL is now only pointing to sites using Squarespace v7. When you use that URL to sign into a v5 site, you get the spinning circle.

When logging in to a v5 site, use the following URL: http://userid.squarespace.com/display/Login
where "userid" is your Squarespace login name.

For info on upgrading your v5 site to v7, see:

Squarespace's priority is pretty templates, not reliable service. I'm searching for a more reliable host, but surprizingly it's hard to find elegant, simple, easily editable templates anywhere else.

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?

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.

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 :(

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.
