Squarespace Pricing

Squarespace may be the slickest, hippest do-it-yourself website builder around. All sites built with it get domain name registration and SSL. Upgrades have made it even more intuitive to use than it was before, and it's just as straightforward as Wix or Duda, which also provide 3rd party website feature integration. Squarespace assembles some of the best looking websites around, with bona fide responsive designs. Squarespace Pricing - Although Squarespace provides no long-term free accounts choice, as Weebly and Wix do, you can test it completely free for fourteen days, though your test site will not be live on the Web until you spend money on an account.

Pricing: accounts start at $12 per month for a website of around 20 pages, and they operate around $40 per month for a top power trade website serving infinite bandwidth with real time shipping integration. Pricing rates are reasonable when compared with the entry level pricing of 1&1 MyWebsite, Jimdo, Weebly, and Wix. The price includes web site hosting. You also receive one year of free domain name registration if you're on an annual payment schedule, but you might also join a domain you already have to your Squarespace built website. Adhering to the 1st year, domain pricing fluctuates between $20 and $70 a year, depending upon the desirability of the URL you selected.

Like pretty much every website builder, you start the actual design process by selecting a template. Squarespace provides 84 good looking alternatives, adding significantly to the selections it offered just a few years ago. After selecting a template, you create an on-line account by entering your name, e-mail, and password. No credit card is needed at this point. You next choose a category, like Media, Music, Travel, and so forth. Then, there is this nice touch: you select goals for your site, like announcing events, showcasing art, web blogging, or selling products. Next in this first step-by step startup process, is choosing if your site is for yourself, a buddy, a client, a business, or for any other use.

You then enter a website description, and, finally, a title for your website. Interface - just like the Squarespace designs, its editing interface is among this most elegant things around, and also quite intuitive. You cannot just start editing the template site. Rather, you first create a page based on any template page, and get going from there. The lack of a sidebar to add elements, like that in Duda, is somewhat different but very convenient once you get used to it. You edit in full screen view, and you simply tap the edit button at the top or on a component to begin editing.
