When setting up an online website for blogging, a business, or a professional portfolio, you’ll notice that Wix vs. Squarespace is a popular debate. Both platforms are popular with beginners because you can create a well-functioning website without being a technical expert.
But both of them are pretty different from each other, so it’s vital to get an in-depth look at them before committing to a purchase.
So, which is better: Wix or Squarespace? This article will outline the key characteristics of both to help you make a decision.
Wix vs. Squarespace: Setting Up
While it’s easy to get started with both Squarespace and Wix, they do have some slight differences. Here’s a brief outline of the setup process for both.
Creating a website with Wix is pretty straightforward. After signing up for an account, you’ll get two options. Either you can answer a few questions and let the Wix ADI (Artificial Design Intelligence) create a website for you, or you can choose to build your site from scratch.
If you choose to start from scratch, Wix will help you by showing a live preview of how your website looks while you create it. You have complete control and can add text, images, and more, wherever you want.
Setting up with Squarespace is also pretty simple. Like Wix, you can start from scratch and make your homepage—and other pages—look how you want them to. If you’d prefer, you can also use themes (more on those later).
