Typepad is a blogging service owned by Endurance International Group, previously owned by SAY Media (from the merger of Six Apart Ltd and VideoEgg). Originally launched in October 2003, Typepad is based on Six Apart's Movable Type platform, and shares technology with Movable Type such as templates and APIs, but is marketed to non-technical users and includes additional features like multiple author support, photo albums and mobile blogging.

Typepad is currently used by many large organizations and media companies to host their weblogs, such as ABC, MSNBC, the CBC, the BBC[3] and Sky News.[4]

Typepad underwent a major DDoS attack in April 2014 that caused its service to go down for about six days.[5]
