Recently I helped move a client from SquareSpace to WordPress, the reason for this was simple. She’d struggled with SquareSpace having decent customer support. I understand that SS is considered simple for it’s drag and drop abilities, but I would argue that you aren’t building your site with long term vision when using a service such as this.
Originally I wanted to change a client from SquareSpace to WordPress, SquareSpace made every step a nightmare. Support was slow to non-existent, live chat is intermittent because it disappears when they queue it up.
I was so frustrated I even engaged their support via Twitter, that didn’t help:
Of course, even when I finally did get support they were unable to assist me and after 15 minutes a supervisor finally helped. Avoid all this and heed by guides below for hosting and transferring away from SquareSpace as fast as possible.
