Wix vs. Squarespace is a heated topic as websites become a necessity for businesses and brands of any size. Wix and Squarespace are among the most popular drag-and-drop website builders. Today, we’ll be inspecting every aspect of the two website builders. This includes price, flexibility, ease of use, and more.
Wix offers a free plan, while Squarespace doesn’t. If you’re simply looking for the cheapest option, Wix is the clear winner. With that being said, the paid plans offer a different perspective. Wix’s plan structure is confusing, with the first paid plan starting at $13/month and paid plans going up to $49/month. Squarespace takes a simpler approach, offering four plans starting at $16/month. The plans are priced at a similar price point, so the features and functionality should dictate the service you choose.
Wix vs. Squarespace: The Breakdown
There are plenty of factors in the Wix vs. Squarespace battle that I cover in my video, but here is what it breaks down to:
If you’re looking for a clean and simple website builder that will help you create a beautiful website with little to no web design experience, Squarespace is the superior option.
While Squarespace may be considered “more restrictive” than Wix, it’s for a good reason. Squarespace goes above and beyond to ensure you’ll end up with a clean and modern website that works well on mobile devices.
If you’re looking for a website builder with ultimate flexibility, and you have an eye for UI design, Wix is for you.
Wix offers more advanced customizability than Squarespace. Want to move an item one pixel to the left? Wix can do that. The ultimate flexibility is a double-edged sword because you can end up with a clunky website that doesn’t scale well on mobile devices. You can truly do anything with Wix. That’s exciting if you have an eye for clean website designs, but it can be dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing.
