Last updated on May 29th, 2020 at 06:22 am

In the video above you’ll see how you can preview your website when you are on the Squarespace Trial period. You will also see how you can take your Squarespace website live.

You can do all this in the same place, under Settings.

#1 log Into Squarespace

First, Log into your Squarespace (https://squarespace.com/login ) . Then choose the website you want to preview.

#2 Squarespace settings

If you want to preview or you want to take it live, click on Settings.

And then, click on site Availability.

For you to take the site live, you’ll have to upgrade. If you want to publish it right away, you are going to have to upgrade to publish the website. Click on on the black, Upgrade to Publish button to get started with publishing your site.

If your website has been upgraded and you already have a domain connected, you can use that to preview your website.

You can also preview it using the default Squarespace subdomain. This is the domain that Squarspace creates for you when you create a new Square-space website. This link can be obtained from your browser as shown in the video. Just copy the first bit of the URL on your browser. Copy up to .com just before / config, so you’ll have something like , sample-sqsp.sqauresapce.com .

#3 Free Trial No domain yet

If you don’t want to upgrade yet, but you want to preview the website. Go to settings > Site Availability, and then just click on , Password protected.

Set a password and you can use that to preview your website.

By default it will be on private. When it is on Private you won’t be able to preview the website unless you are logged into the Squarespace Admin Area.

You can set a password and use the password to preview your site.

Once you set the password, click on save.

Now if I go to any other browser, you’ll be able to preview your Squarespace site.

So, just use the link that you copied from your Squarespace Admin browser to preview your website. Just copy the first part of the link .

This link can be obtained from your browser as shown in the video. Just copy the first bit of the URL on your browser. Copy up to .com just before / config, so you’ll have something like , sample-sqsp.sqauresapce.com .

Or you can use a domain of you’ve already connected a domain.

Try opening the link in a private browser / incognito Window. It will ask you for the password, and you can now preview your Squarespace website.

So that is how you can preview your website on Squarespace when you are building it. If you don’t set a password, you will not be able to preview it otherwise.
