YES, YOU CAN!
I’ve been hosting eCourses on my own Squarespace website since 2016 and I love it! And so do my students! There are two options for how to do this:
You can use Squarespace’s built-in page password to protect your content. This means one password for everyone and is the safest and most cost effective way to protect your content.
Read on if this is what you want.

Why they love it!
“After spending a couple of years trialing all sorts of platforms, I finally found what I was looking for! Your course was so amazing and empowering!! I've just successfully run my first online program and everyone loved it! Big gratitude!”
“A massive thank you for putting together such a wonderful and helpful course. My favorite part is how much FUN it is to put your lessons together in Squarespace! I've used Teachable for my courses before, and it's nowhere near as fun or intuitive!”
“You have no idea how much you helped me. I've wasted so much time in recent months making the round of "learning management systems", to find none that were what I wanted without having to recreate another online home. As I was just starting to launch my online presence, it was a waste of effort. I feel so much more focused and clear since I set up my course on Squarespace, it's much more intuitive than learning someone else's platform. Best of all, it costs me nothing extra. I absolutely love the fact that you can drip content. I shocked a couple of folks who were looking down their noses at my "DIY" solution. They were like, well you really need the drip feature. I was very happy to say "I got it!" They were genuinely surprised. And I love the sidebar. That was a revelation. I agree it is the cat's meow. Thank you so much!”
“Kerstin, you have literally saved my brain. Yes, I could have scoured the internet for code to change the pagination. I could have written the Zapier (I've written many). I could have created the Mailchimp campaign (I've done dozens)... But you made it so easy. YOU MADE IT SO EASY! OMG...I had no idea how good it would feel to have someone just tell me what to do. Like a lovely gift. Numbered lists. Carefully thought out sequences. Gosh. You are my hero! Oh and did I tell you? It works! All of it. You're the best!”
“am so glad I decided to take Kerstin’s Squarespace Classroom Course. I don’t know code, nor do I know much about web design, her instructions and step-by-step teaching approach made everything easy. Her course saved me weeks of hard work, I would not have gotten the same results on my own. I also gained valuable insights and knowledge that will carry forth into other aspects of my business and web design. Kerstin is also very responsive in the Facebook group if you have any questions. I highly recommend her and her course!”
We use Squarespace version 7.0 in this class, see also FAQ.
Because Squarespace does not have a membership functionality I am using a password protected blog as well as custom CSS, code injection and Zapier, OR Squarespace Campaigns, to set up an online classroom and to provide a seamless sign-up process that automatically delivers the password to your customer.
I share each method (Zapier or Squarespace Classroom) in step-by-step videos and instructions. If you prefer to have user accounts for your customers I have a course for that, too, click here to learn more.
