I there something better than WordPress?
In my mind, you cannot do better than using better than WordPress to build your website.
Squarespace, Weebly and Wix all say that WordPress is for people with strong coding knowledge, but that is not so.
Since the introduction of the Gutenberg Block Editor in WP5, it has become even easier to use WordPress. Also, Page Builders (such as Divi) makes it easier to create awesome websites.
More important than comparing these providers’ editors, WordPress gives you the freedom to move your website to any hosting provider or platform. That is not the case if you want to move away from Squarespace, Weebly and Wix, to WordPress.
This portability means that when you need to move your website to faster (dedicated) hosting, you will be happy that you went with WordPress. If your current hosting provider was no longer a good fit for your needs, you could migrate your website elsewhere. If you need to move away from Squarespace, Weebly or Wix, you will pull out your hair.
Where to build your WordPress website?
Comparing WordPress hosting alternatives is not straightforward, so define your most important criteria. If the hosting cost for your first website is your biggest consideration, then build your WordPress website oB Bluehost.
Bluehost has been recommended by WordPress since 2005. They provide everything you need to get started quickly. Their lowest tier of WordPress hosting is also their most popular platform. They will be a great home for your first website, and if your needs change, you can move on.
