Conclusion: 

Although Squarespace has its strongpoints, we’d have to recommend Arvixe overall. Squarespace is close to being a top-tier host, but they have a few issues to work out. Squarespace’s SEO is pretty heavily critiqued, their website building is hit-or-miss for most people, they don’t offer phone support, and they have an unusually short 14 day free trial. Meanwhile, Arvixe is pretty solid across the board, offering both Linux and Windows-based servers,  a long money-back guarantee, and significantly cheaper plans than Squarespace.
