Wix, Weebly or Squarespace? What's best for a simple website

8 replies
I want to start putting together a website.

I have little to no experience in graphic design.

Out of these three which are going to be the simplest for creating (using a template) and updating the site.

Also, I do want to have a platform that has high security.

I would really like to hear your experience and what works for you.

My site will be basically 5 pages right now and nothing too technical, just outlining my services and possibly a blog.

    I use weebly, very good platform and easy to use. I have tried wix also but I don't like their platform not as good as weebly.

    As for squarespace, I will be honest, I have never heard of them, so I can't give feedback on them.

    Out of those three choices I would go with Wix. I recently revisited a long time running Wix site of mine and it looks like they are still adding/tweaking things to make the platform more user friendly for both the owner and viewer.

      Yes, I worked on a Wix site a few years back and it wasn't too flash, the new sites seem a little more simple to use and there is less chance I will delete anything important.

    why not just go with wordpress. There are so many themes and plugins you can go so much farther than you can with the solutions you mentioned

      I don't know how to set up Wordpress, the other three seem a little simpler. Or can Wordpress be done fairly simply without any HTML knowledge.

      While I can update content on Wordpress sites, I've never set up one. I have a little experience with Wix (from a while back) and Square Space and both seemed really simple to drag and drop.

        Most hosting companies have one click wordpress installers provided in your dashboard. As well, you can just go to youtube and find hundreds of videos for setting up a wp site as well as configuring themes and plugins. Once you get over the learning curve it is really simple
