Squarespace has launched a new feature this week that allows its customers to publish content in Apple News Format directly from their Squarespace blog.
According to Squarespace, Apple News Format allows publishers to create signature content for Apple News that is automatically optimized for iPhone and iPad.
The integration with Apple News is available to all customers, and Squarespace said customers can create their own branded Apple News channel that is discoverable in-app.
As hosting becomes an increasingly competitive landscape, features like this integration which help customers’ websites get found can be a selling point for an individual or small or medium-sized business user.
Squarespace said this is the first of more Apple News integrations to come. Initially, users can publish images and galleries, videos, audio, text, Twitter and Instagram embedded content and a link back to their Squarespace site.
In April, Squarespace launched Squarespace Domains as a way for it to offer 200 top-level domains to users, competing with other SMB-focused hosting providers.
