Squarespace sent me a questionnaire that said it was no longer available as soon as I clicked the unsatisfied button so let me create my own survey:...
Did the representative solve your problem? No
Did the representative listen well enough to understand your problem? No
Was the representative condescending? Yes
Will you continue to use Squarespace services in the future? No a couple of months before my contract with Squarespace is up for renewal I will begin creating a site on an alternate platform.
I am posting here because Squarespace is impossible to contact either by email or phone and redirects you to an annoying generic FAQ every time you try.
GoDaddy and SquareSpace are two popular companies, both of which provide a lot of extra services beyond just hosting. When looking specifically at the hosting services, however, SquareSpace really doesn’t have too much to offer. They keep their hosting fairly basic since their main audience is people who don’t have much experience with hosting, so they likely won’t need anything too strong. This does limit the growth potential though. GoDaddy, on the other hand, has lots of different hosting options, which offers individuals and companies the flexibility they need, which is why they won this comparison.
