Squarespace – Creating Customizable Websites and Blogs


Squarespace is yet another website hosting and management app—along the same lines as WordPress—with one or two notable differences. For one thing, the Squarespace interface is one of the best out there, making it easy for users to customize and manage their website or blog without much hassle. Everything you need to use Squarespace is right there—no need to look to third party plugins or to study up on programming terms. They are, for instance, one of the few website hosting services that offers traffic stats without needing a third party plugin.

The best thing about Squarespace is the freedom it gives its users. Everything is customizable and you can move plugins and widgets much easier than with other competing apps. If there’s one downside to Squarespace, it’s that there isn’t currently a free plan. But considering the usability and look of Squarespace (and with plans starting out extremely cheap), it’s definitely worth the investment. In short, for users looking for an easy way to manage a website or blog, it seems Squarespace is the solution.
