Website builder Squarespace today launched a new feature that lets customers purchase a domain name straight from its site before using its design tools to put everything together.
Squarespace says at launch, it will offer more than 200 top-level domains, starting at $20 a year. Depending on your desired domain, that price can rise to as high as $70 a year.
Users can connect the domain to their Google Apps for a custom email, and the registration includes a WHOIS Privacy protection plan. It will also offer SSL certificates and domain transfers for free, but these features are coming soon.
The launch comes a week after Etsy just unveiled its own website building tool, Pattern, which lets its community of sellers purchase and manage custom domain names as well. However, Pattern uses a third-party partner to facilitate the domain registration, and a WHOIS plan costs an additional $3 annually.
Squarespace Domains are available today.
Editor’s Note: The earlier version of this article stated that the plans start at $20 a month. We regret this error.
