Your website is your domain.

Does Squarespace host domains for free? Sort of.

StoreBuilder vs Squarespace FAQ

StoreBuilder is the fastest & most flexible WordPress ecommerce builder. You don’t need to know WordPress at all. Everything is pre-installed and ready-to-rock.

Squarespace charges $26-40/month for StoreBuilder’s features. Even their most advanced plans don’t have built-in plugin performance monitoring, sales performance monitoring, and automated testing.
At $19/month, StoreBuilder is the best alternative to Squarespace.

WordPress gives you more freedom to grow and make more money. When you grow on Squarespace, you pay more and more for add-ons and transaction fees. And you have to rebuild your store if you move to a new hosting provider!
