Setting up a website can be quick, easy and cheap. In this post, John Espirian shows you a step-by-step guide to getting started with Squarespace.
The video that accompanies this post focuses on the ‘how’ but not the ‘why’. If you haven’t read the introductory post in this series, I’d suggest taking a look before following the steps in this video.
Here’s a quick summary of what you can expect when setting up a website with Squarespace.
- You’ll get a free 14-day trial by visiting squarespace.com.
- You’ll get a subdomain in the form yourname.squarespace.com.
- To continue beyond the trial period, you’ll have to pay £8 per month (price checked in September 2014).
- Paid accounts include a custom domain name at no extra cost.
Squarespace is a good option for anyone looking to get started with a professional-looking website. I got the impression that the available visual themes were best suited to artists and photographers.
The user interface isn’t quite as easy to use as those found in WordPress and Weebly, but it doesn’t take much effort to get up and running.
It’s free to try Squarespace for 14 days, so why not give it a whirl?
