8 reasons we ❤️ Squarespace



Squarespace was designed with the do-it-yourself user in mind, making it notably easy for to maintain and update their websites on you own. Managing websites is a matter of dragging-and- dropping, pulling on corners to resize images, and what-you-see-is-what-you-get editing. If you've used a computer in the past twenty years you'll feel right at home.

Beautiful design that performs 🚀

Squarespace templates are beautifully and thoughtfully designed to incorporate cutting edge UI/UX best practices, which means you website will have the best of the best in “form and function” baked right in.

Peace of mind 😇

Squarespace is a self-contained platform that works seamlessly and is fully managed from top to bottom. This means there’s never any need to update software, plugins, or widgets; patch security vulnerabilities; or worry that changing one component might break something else. It also means there’s rarely any need to investigate or pay for third-party apps or plugins, since most functionality is native to Squarespace.

Responsive Design 🖥 📱

Mobile traffic now accounts for more than half of all website traffic. With that in mind, it’s critical that websites perform across any device and screen size. Every Squarespace template includes a unique mobile experience that matches the overall style of the website, so content will look great on every device, every time.
