Squarespace and Wordpress websites
We build websites in Squarespace and Wordpress, CMS platforms with user-friendly interfaces for updating web pages and posting blogs. Updates are easy and efficient — whether you choose to manage these yourself or opt for ongoing or occasional maintenance from Site Content.
Beautiful, responsive themes — mobile friendly
Both Squarespace and Wordpress offer beautiful responsive themes and design templates — all our websites work beautiful on mobile devices. These are our preferred platforms, what we recommend. See our comparison of Squarespace and Wordpress.
Site on another platform?
Already have a website on another platform and need help with it? We've got broad experience with websites built in a range of CMS platforms.
Squarespace, BigCommerce or Shopify platforms
We use Squarespace or Shopify platforms to build online shopping sites for ecommerce. Your site will be an excellent marketing tool with all the SEO boxes ticked to drive traffic through your virtual shop door.
We can set up an online shop for physical or digital products up to 300 mb in file size.
We can help with image optimisation — mobile websites are slow with images that are too large for mobile content.
Squarespace has great themes for marketing restaurants and accommodation providers with functionality for online bookings.
Website Third-party Costs
On-going third-party costs
Initial purchasing of your domain name is generally inexpensive. Domain name fees in subsequent years can be more expensive.
We’ll register your domain name as a cost-recovery service — you pay the fee, our service for organising it is complementary with any new website we design.
Website hosting fees
Squarespace websites are hosted by Squarespace.
Wordpress websites are hosted by an external hoster. We'll arrange hosting for your new Wordpress site in Godaddy. Why Godaddy? They offer 24/7 support with good communication style, and they're security conscious.
All our sites come with SSL certificates — the https protocol for security.
SSL Certificates are inbuilt with Squarespace hosting. An SSL certificate for a Wordpress site is an additional annual cost (on top of hosting). We organise SSL certificates for standard Wordpress sites with Godaddy.
Want to know more about https? See our post about SSL Certificates.
