Why To Choose Squarespace For Your Website | Go Live HQ

One of the first steps in creating a website is choosing which website hosting platform is best for your business. It can be seriously confusing when you’re looking at all the options, but at Go Live, we recommend Squarespace ALL THE TIME. If you’re launching for the first time and don’t have a large budget to spend on designers and developers, it’s VITAL to choose a platform you’ll be comfortable using and able to get creative with. Especially if you’re not the most tech-savvy! Squarespace checks off all those boxes.

We even love building our custom clients’ sites on Squarespace because it’s so easy to use! We know that they'll be able to easily learn the platform, and have the confidence to regularly make changes and update their site on their own. If you're deciding on a platform to host your website, here are the best reasons to choose Squarespace.
