> It’s also the first registrar to offer transparent pricing, flat rates, and free WHOIS privacy.

I don't know what "transparent pricing" or "flat rates" means within the realm of "first registrar" (because, on its face, that claim is absurd), but it's also not the first to offer free WHOIS privacy.

Amazon Route 53 does all of that, albeit not with the "simple, modern experience" described before.

I read that as "hipster-tier bullshit". Squarespace security has always been garbage and I'm sure ppl can social-engineer DNS registrations out of them as well.

Whole fucking company's a joke.

Squarespace domain prices are in some cases 23x more than reliable registrars like NameCheap.com

Hunting for Website Host for Old Domain, Provider for New One:
Do you speak from personal experience, anonymous? I am curious, because I was considering Squarespace, along with Wix and Weebly, to host my small business' website. But I am wary of using its M$ or Google third-party email server options. I currently use 1&1 for both web and email servers, but I know my website badly needs refreshening. Thoughts?

Your whole post is fucking bullshit and nonsense and makes no sense.

First of all, to use Squarespace for hosting, you don't have to move your email or DNS providers.

Secondly, stay the fuck away from Weebly. They've always been shit and they got hacked recently and MILLIONS of usernames, passwords and emails got leaked.

You can evaluate Squarespace but consider the cost. You'll be paying premium for ease of building a site. And once you build your site, you'll still be paying the premium even though you're not using their tools every day. You can get bandwidth a lot cheaper elsewhere. It all depends on how much traffic you're getting and how much business you're doing but it makes little sense for most SMEs. You're better off buying a custom or semi-custom (i.e. pay someone to customize an existing template) site design than to keep overpaying every month and be LOCKED IN with something that only works on ONE internet provider.
