Squarespace vs WordPress

You are starting your own business and you have heard you need a website. Scary, right? When I started my business and heard that it scared the crap out of me. First, you have to choose a website platform. Which website platform is right for you: Squarespace vs WordPress.


Squarespace

Squarespace is a great platform to build your website with. You don’t need to know about the technique that comes with websites. They take care of that for you. You don’t have to find out what you need to make your website work and safe. Between you and me I see so many websites that still not use https and are not safe to use. When you make your website on Squarespace you don’t even have to know what https is. That’s great, right! 

You can choose from stunning templates that are totally customizable. Their builder with the easy grab-and-drop principle is very easy to use. You can just move around blocks until you have created the page just the way you want it to look without using code. In my online course, Wanderful Website, you learn everything about this.

Also, all of their templates look fantastic on mobile, tablet, and desktop without you having to do anything. With WordPress that is not always the case. I found that out the hard way.

You can create and update your own website with Squarespace. You don’t have to hire anybody to make and keep updating your website. Just imagine not having to call or talk to anybody about your website… Heaven, right? It doesn’t just save you the stress to call somebody every time you want to change something on your site. It saves you a lot of money too.


WordPress

WordPress is great when you are not a beginner. You need more knowledge to make your website work and safe. Once you know that it’s an amazing website platform. 

The amount of free and paid themes are incredible. Be sure to choose your theme from a reputable source. Some themes can contain malicious code which can compromise the security of your site and you definitely don’t want that. 

The same problem applies to plugins. To make your website work you need to work with plugins. These are created by people around the world. Most of the plugins you need have a free option but there are also some plugins that you have to buy to use. Whatever you think of there is a plugin for it. But you really have to check if it’s a good plugin to use. Do some research. Check if the plugin has been updated in the last couple of weeks and check the reviews. One of my favorite websites to use is wpbeginner.com. Even if you’re not a beginner anymore after a while you still can find everything you need on that site.
