A Recap on Squarespace
Squarespace have created a universal website building and hosting platform, which centres around templates with drag ‘n’ drop content blocks. Based in New York, USA, Squarespace now provide this platform globally to businesses and individuals.
The basis of the Squarespace platform is that anyone can use it. Most of the complex coding is already taken care of behind the scenes, so all that most users have to do is choose a template as a base and use the drag ‘n’ drop system to create their own unique websites.
One of the best parts about this system is that the Squarespace templates are completely adaptable to all modern web browsers and devices, meaning users rarely need to worry about whether their website will work well on desktop and mobile. For some businesses, this is all they need. However, building and maintaining a website can be intense and time consuming, which is why many businesses would prefer to use a dedicated website designer to create the perfect site for them. This is where we come in.
Why do we use Squarespace?
At Fractal CG, we use Squarespace as a toolkit to build our customers their perfect website. We take advantage of all the features that Squarespace has to offer, such as beautiful content formatting, device adaptability, e-commerce and more.
The main reason we do this is because a website needs to be kept constantly up-to-date and continue to perform well. So it is important that the website is maintained long after it is built. Squarespace allows us to do this by giving our customers direct access to their site, so they can upload new products, services and updates whenever they want, without needing to alter coding our complex settings.
