WordPress has both free and paid themes, but when you customized it then it may take time. From official theme directory, you can download excellent quality themes. If you are going to update some features in your theme then you should know CSS, HTML and for more in-depth improvement sometimes it demands knowledge of PHP.

Both of them are having a user-friendly interface, but when it comes to choosing one between WordPress and Squarespace, then we will recommend WordPress. From all above comparison, we can check out that why WordPress is an advance. Even Squarespace also has some most beneficial features as it gives us free hosting, unlimited storage and bandwidth. It cost is fixed, but sometimes it increases when you move to commercial websites, then due to advance functions it will be a high price. Apart from the Squarespace, WordPress is totally free, but when we go with it long term and uses the special plug-in and hosting, then we have to pay for it. As we see the ratio of the user then WordPress is in high demand because in this special plug-in and features are so advance and we don’t have it in Squarespace.
