Squarespace vs. Open Source (Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla)

Squarespace vs. Open Source (Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla)

Squarespace Review: 
You may have noticed Squarespace ran a few ads in this year’s Super Bowl.  It was quite a surprise to me.  In the last month, I’ve had one client switch their site over to Squarespace (they’ll be back), and a new lead come to me, flat-out asking me to ‘rescue’ them from the Squarespace platform. For these reasons, I decided to share a few of my thoughts.

Warning: This is another article in my “Why I Love Open Source Software” series.  

In a nutshell, the Squarespace platform is constricting.  You are tied to their servers and templates.  With Open Source software that I use to build web sites (Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla), you are free to use and customize the software and templates to your liking.  An open source web site can be hosted virtually anywhere - even on a server in your basement, if that’s your thing.
