If you’re a Squarespace user, you might have experienced the horror of accidentally deleting your website or a part of it. Whether you were trying to delete a page, a blog post, or your entire site, you might have felt a surge of panic when you realized what you had done. But don’t worry, there is hope. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to recover a deleted Squarespace website and avoid losing your hard work.
Why You Should Backup Your Squarespace Website
Before we get into the details of how to recover a deleted Squarespace website, let’s talk about why you should backup your site in the first place. Backing up your site means creating a copy of your site’s data and storing it somewhere safe. This way, if something goes wrong with your site, such as deletion, hacking, or corruption, you can restore your site from the backup and get it back to normal.
Backing up your Squarespace website is especially important because Squarespace does not offer an undo option for deleting your site or any of its content. Once you delete something on Squarespace, it is gone forever. That’s why you should always backup your site before making any major changes to it.

Fortunately, Squarespace makes it easy to backup your site. Squarespace automatically saves backups of your site every time you make a change to it. These backups are stored in your account and can be accessed from the Billing & Account tab. You can see the date and time of each backup and choose which one to restore if needed.
To backup your Squarespace website manually, you can also export your site’s data and save it on your computer or an external drive. To do this, go to the Settings panel and click on Advanced. Then click on Import / Export and choose Export. You can export your site’s data as a WordPress XML file or a JSON file.

You will need to save these files separately.
