Peace of mind
Squarespace is a self-contained platform that works seamlessly and is fully managed from top to bottom.
This means there’s never any need to update software, plugins, or widgets; patch security vulnerabilities; or worry that changing one component might break something else. It also means there’s rarely any need to investigate or pay for third-party apps or plugins since most functionality is native to Squarespace.
I love WordPress, and used to develop most of my sites on that platform. But dealing with updates became a battle of many-headed Hydras, as plug-ins and patches needed to be updated in concert with WordPress platforms.
Since switching to Squarespace, all of my and my client's time is focused on content creation and updates. The backend just chugs along in the background without any effort on our part.
