    Pros

    The squarespace website is clean, beautiful and fresh. The templates are really well made and look great, really rivals wix in that aspect. Unlike a lot of website builders I have used this allows you to add an online store with a login in function so that's pretty cool. They also have live chat that can help you with your problems instantly.

    Cons

    Their templates depend a lot on their pictures so if you change the pictures your website might look totally different

    Pros

    Squarespace's motto is "build it beautiful"--and they let you do so with their wonderful designs. As soon as you sign up they make you choose a design for your site. You can upload one but why bother? They will most likely have what you're looking for.

    Cons

    Their prices are higher than their competitors. While there are cheaper options out there, if your budget allows for it, Squarespace is worth it.

    I use Squarespace for my personal website, and I love it! It took me a bit to get used to how to navigate, but once I did, it was easy to use, and I'm very happy with how my website turned out. It's definitely the best website building software I have used.

    Pros

    I like that they have a big selection of templates, and that it's easy to customize them for exactly what you want.

    Cons

    Honestly, the only con I can think of is that sometimes blocks of text will auto-join if they are right next to each other, which can be a little frustrating if you want to format them differently. It's not a big deal; just annoying sometimes.

    Pros

    Square Space is the BEST way to begin collecting credit card payment in person. I currently use the free service and take advantage of gaining free credit (without processing fees) or making small enough transactions which don't incur this fee. I enjoy squarespace because it has made the checkout process easier for my clients, however it takes a bit of learning to get the most from your price point.

    Cons

    Square Space will try HARD to get you to pay for a business level account. However if you spend enough time figuring out how to avoid that option you can get much more from Square Space. It is expensive, per month, to have an account and if you are just starting and sales are slow take your time to learn how to work their algorithm and system.

    For someone who would like to create a quite simply website and doesn't have any experience with CMSes, programming and creating websites, this is a great choice, especially considering its low price.

    Pros

    There's no doubt it's the easiest software for creating a web. Yes, Wordpress is easy but Squarespace is EXTREMELY easy. Also, it's pretty cheap, and it's functional enough for most of the needs - you choose design, your modules you need, you customize it a bit and it's done!

    Cons

    It could be just a tiny bit more advanced. But if it was more advanced, it probably would be closer to Wordpress, which means Squarespace would probably lose it's purpose. All in all, I'm probably fine with Squarespace as it is.

    I'm quite happy with the ability to build a modern, responsive website, with a minimum of time and effort, including porting from wordpress

    Cons

    I really wish there was some ability to customize templates beyond colours-- certain design elements can be grating, but are locked in by the chosen template. There's definitely a flexibility for beauty tradeoff.

    Good experience, better than using WordPress in my opinion.

    Pros

    I had to build a blog for a college class assignment, I attempted to use WordPress, but after struggling for a while I decided to try Squarespace, and I am glad I did! So much more user friendly!

    Cons

    Squarespace was much more user friendly, but I did like some of the features that WordPress offered. More features, or features that are easier to find and use would be my suggestion for improvement.

    I love the great templates & ease of use of the software. It has a bit of a learning curve, but way easier for clients to update for themselves if that is one of their main goals for a simple website.

    Cons

    The design part of the software makes changing colors and finding the right place to change fonts difficult. Once you learn it though it gets easier.

    Clean, straightforward design. Easy to create websites and fairly priced.

    Cons

    Getting support help is hard. Helps guides are long and tedious to read, would like quicker access to answer or real person.

    squarespace makes it so easy to create a website. they give you templates to build the site around instead of needing to create everything from scratch. this really helps streamline the website and make it easier for you to make it and easier for the people that will be using it. next time i need a website made, i will be using squarespace.

    Cons

    i have had no issues or cons to report so far and same with the many people i know that are also using this software. it works great and hasn't failed yet

    It has been great! Whenever a question or problem came up I would write into their support team and my experience was always so wonderful. They solved the problem immediately and provided me with easy to review screenshots on how to go about fixing my issue. It was great!

    Pros

    I love how the tool is really easy for non-technical people to use. I don't code, but I was able to build a custom looking website to share my photography and poetry.

    Cons

    I do wish the software had greater flexibility in choosing what custom design and layouts I want. Each template is beautiful, but they do have locked in features that can't be taken from other temapltes.

    Pros

    What an relieving way to jump into the website creating arena. As someone with no experience in that field and being tasked by my manager to create a website I was daunted by the task. After some research I was lucky enough to stumble upon Squarespace. This program made me feel like I could start a business making websites for other people. The websites looked amazing and had every feature you would get from a programmer starting from scratch for a fraction of the cost. Would highly recommend.

    Cons

    It can be a little overwhelming with all the features and add-ons but in all honesty it's made as simple as possible and within a day of messing around on a mock website I was able to get the hang of it.

    I tried several times to build a website using sequrespace but ended up not using it since I could not modify the templates to my liking

    Pros

    Squarespace offers great templates to design great portfolio or small businesses websites - they have really good looking designs which you can change to your liking . it is very simple to use and a great one stop shop solution for both hosting and managing a website

    Cons

    while editing different themes you cannot completely redesign things. I found it hard to actually create layouts that I liked or be able to do minor adjustments to my needs. it is mostly just changing look and feel but not much else.

    As a web developer I'd recommend people use squarespace if they need a quick and easy website to fit their needs. It'll fit 90% of your needs and do exactly what you need.

    Cons

    It's not made for complete control of your site. As with all these services, it is targeted to it audience as a product, and if you need something they don't offer, it's not a good fit for your needs.

    We build websites for each of our ministry events to get the message out. Squarespace allows us to quickly build a website and get information in peoples hands without having to hire a web development company.

    Pros

    The trendy templates make website building a breeze. Prior to finding Squarespace, we spent thousands of dollars rebuilding our office website. When we found out that the development company was going to charge us a monthly fee to host the site, we decided to rebuild the website on our own and host it ourselves. I mirrored the custom website using a Squarespace template in less than 4 hours. So easy.

    What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get (WYSIWYG) builder makes creating a website super easy. There are lots of advanced options, but the essential actions are front and center.

    You can drop in html if you are an advance user Or just use the templates.

    We can house more than one website in the same account.

    Built in analytics allows us to see what pages are viewed the most.

    Allows password protected pages as an option.

    Graphic friendly.

    Cons

    There have been a few times when the builder has glitches and I had to close down the browser and reopen it for it to work.

    There is not any free stock images with the site, so you have to have your own images to select from.

    I host my personal blog and website with Squarespace.

    Pros

    Squarespace has one of the best UI/UX in the drag & drop website building industry. Pricing is decent and affordable. I host my personal blog on Squarespace and the themes are fantastic. Love the platform.

    Cons

    Their blogging editor is one of the worst I've ever seen. It's not at all intuitive. It's a distraction. Lacks proper writing tools and elements like quotes are represented as blocks which makes writing hard.
