Lots of restrictions. Payment method fraudulent. Charge when automatic payment is disabled. Very slow support.

I asked to have an upgrade of Python so that I could installed Django and it was denied. Their shared server has Python 2.7, and Python 3 was denied to be installed, which has been the standard version for many years (you are... More give a jail shell that restricts most installation). Their basic plan is way too restrictive. You have to get a non-shared server to get any serious work done there and pay lots of money. There is also no way to stop a payment once the invoice is done six weeks in advance. Turning off automatic payment does nothing once the invoice is done and there is no way to remove a credit card once added to do payments. Less
Lousy Service

Squarespace sent me a questionnaire that said it was no longer available as soon as I clicked the unsatisfied button so let me create my own survey:
Did the representative solve your problem? No
Did the representative listen ... More well enough to understand your problem? No
Was the representative condescending? Yes
Will you continue to use Squarespace services in the future? No a couple of months before my contract with Squarespace is up for renewal I will begin creating a site on an alternate platform.
I am posting here because Squarespace is impossible to contact either by email or phone and redirects you to an annoying generic FAQ every time you try.
