Typepad is a blogging service from company 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.

The service is available in several languages and countries around the world. In the United States, Typepad is sold at three different paid subscription levels.[2]

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 6 days.[5]
