What are the costs of hosting and domain with Squarespace?

Squarespace pricing is generally quite clear, but we have found it helpful to break it down fully.

This is helpful once you have to factor in discounts or want to see VAT figures.

For the moment, we have just laid out the hosting costs for the Personal and Business plans. The Commerce options will follow in due course, as well as notes on buying domains.
