Important: Plan to retire sitebox

Today, we are announcing our plan to retire sitebox. Your sitebox account will remain active until **September 1 2017**. After that sitebox will be shut down. We understand that this may cause you inconvenience, and we found some alternatives for you to use for your website.

What happens to my data?

Your data will not be lost! Sitebox stores your data in an app folder in your own dropbox. This means you can still access all source markdown & HTML of your site after we shut down, and move it to another hosting provider.

What do I do now?

There are several great alternatives to sitebox

  • If you are a bit technical and like writing markdown in your own editor, github pages might be for you.
  • If you want to get a simple site up quickly, Squarespace might be a good option.
  • There are many more online website builders and static site generators. Many support markdown and custom HTML.


We are just two guys working on sitebox among other things. We are no longer able to maintain it, and ensure you have the quality and the support you need from us.

Thank you for your support, The sitebox team
