Squarespace is the gold standard for web design

5.0 last week New

Pros:

Squarespace is the most intuitive, simple and easy to use web builder I've ever used. I recommend it to all my clients who aren't confident in their website management skills.

Cons:

It's definitely on the pricier side of website design options but it's worth it for the ease of use and built in beautiful design. Almost impossible to get it wrong.

Great for DIYers

4.0 last month New

Comments: Overall, I always recommend it as an viable option to my clients to choose from when helping them build a website because of its' user-friendly and low learning curve.

Pros:

Squarespace offers beautiful templates and an easy-to-use platform to quickly and easily set up a website. It's also easy for me to teach my clients how to manage it effectively.

Cons:

It is limited in its' design options and flexibility so if you're more advanced in web design, it might not be the right platform for you unless you're very well-versed in coding. I also find it a bit expensive considering its' restrictions.

Squarespace: Best and fast website builder

3.0 2 years ago

Comments: If you are a beginner and want to build a website as quickly as possible without any prior knowledge, then you can go with Squarespace. But, if you are willing to invest some time to learn about website development, then nothing is better than WordPress.

Pros:

Squarespace is a good option for beginners who want to build a website without any prior web development knowledge. They provides lots templates to design the website, which are mobile-friendly. First you need to select one among 100+ templates and start buliding your website with it's easy website builder. You can easy sell products in Squarespace and track product orders from the dashboard. It also has a Financial dashboard to track earnings. And ff you have any concerns about using Squarespace, you can contact customer service at any time.

Cons:

Squarespace sites are not good in search engine optimization, making it difficult to rank them on the first page of Google. Limited software and service can be integrated with Squarespace. It is also quite tough to migrate from Squarespace to another website development platform.

Fairly Easy to Use Website Builder

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: Overall I like Squarespace and I will definitely continue to use it.

Pros:

Squarespace is fairly easy to use. Has most fundamental features built into the platform. Great no-fuss option. It integrates with most major third-party apps as well so that's great.

Cons:

Drag/drop features/offerings are not as robust as other platforms. There are a number of limitations when it comes to customizations so some coding experience might be required for any special features, etc. you might want to create.

Easy for not professional website builders

5.0 3 weeks ago New

Comments: Easy to use, good customer support. A lot of option for choosing what suits you best.

Pros:

I had no skills in building website before using squarespace. It was easy to use the template available. Although I need to redo the website after 5 years, it still stays functional and works well. Customer services are very responsive with all inquiries.

Cons:

The shop option on my plan did not allow any changes to be made for the look of the shop so I moved elsewhere.
