There are several ways that you can start over on Squarespace. Some of these allow you to keep your content or style settings. Or you can completely restart.
What are the Options for Starting Over?
There are several options for starting over your Squarespace website. These are those options.
Reset Style Setting – Keep the content of the website you have now but restore the style settings.
Delete Site Content – Removes all the content you’ve got on the site, but you will keep style settings.
Redesign Site – Keep as much content as you want, but choose a new style and structure.
New Site – Start from scratch.
Here are the ways that you start over in more detail
Option 1 – Reset Style Settings
This allows you to reset the template to the default style. This will include all the fonts, colours, spacing and other things that you might have changed on the style. Nothing of your site’s content will be altered. To change any styles you need to go into your ‘Site Styles’ options and then click on the area where you would like reset the style (you need to reset the different style areas individually).
In each style section, there will be an option to reset the style. Always ensure that you’re clicking on ‘Save’ to confirm the changes.
Option 2 – Delete the Site’s Content
Another option is to delete the site content of your website. To delete a page, you can go from your ‘Home Menu’ and then the ‘Pages’ button. Then you can hover over the page you would like to delete and click on the ‘Trash’ icon.
Option 3 – Redesign Your Site
This is when you want to create new page structures and designs for your website but keep your Squarespace subscription the same and don’t want to worry about signing up for a new account.
For this, all you need to do is add pages to your website and then use the structures and designs within the page. There are lots of different layouts so select the one that you would like to use. You can delete pages you don’t like, or add new sections to them and move the copy over.
Option 4 – Starting a New Site
If you want to create a new website from a blank slate, then you need to create a new trial and build the website from scratch. This is by far the most effective option if you don’t like your website and you want to go in a completely different direction.
To start your website, you will need to create a new trial. If you’ve had any product/text/images that you would like to keep on your new site, you can save them. For products, you can export them from your old website and import them into the new website.
Then you can build your new website and then upgrade it to a paid service. If you’ve already got a domain on subscription on your website, you can move this to the new site without an issue. Any Google Workspace account that you have associated with the domain will automatically be moved.
If you’ve had an annual subscription, you can complete a refund form.
