*SquareSpace is a website platform admired for its ease of use, beautiful templates, and multi-device (mobile friendly) designs. It is secure and does not require the update and plugin management of other platforms. It is also self-hosted so you can cancel your current hosting package. Frequently this expense is a flat or close to flat equivalent of a current expense. SquareSpace does not host email so if you have domain specific email address ( you will need to migrate it to a different email host. There are reasonably priced options available and I can help you transfer at no additional cost.
