Although Squarespace has its strongpoints, we would definitely recommend A2 hosting overall. A2 is one of the best hosts out there in terms of performance, which includes top-notch uptime and extremely fast page-loading speeds. On top of this, A2 is also significantly cheaper. Squarespace functions as an all-inclusive website builder, which can be great for certain people, but it will limit the customizability of the websites. The general consensus is that while Squarespace is a good option for smaller sites that don’t need to be highly customized, but WordPress is a better option when it comes to flexibility and function.
