Squarespace gets a lot of attention, and for good reason. It’s sleek, full of features, pretty, and inexpensive. Squarespace will run you eight dollars a month for the basic package, with rates topping out at $24.00 a month for the “Business” package. $8 a month nets you 500 GB of bandwidth, a mobile website, up to 20 pages, 2 GB of storage, a custom domain, and 24/7 customer support. For $24.00, you get unlimited bandwidth/storage, and more. Like WordPress, Squarespace will also provide you with traffic stats. If you ever develop an affinity for WordPress, Squarespace allows you to export your website into WP. This means you’ll be able to add on features to your website that WordPress has and Squarespace does not, like tag clouds.
