Squarespace for buying website
Has anyone used Squarespace for their buying website? If so any tips on themes or otherwise that worked well for you? I have used Squarespace for my personal website/blog and even worked with some form data so I am familiar with their tools and comfortable with everything on there. I have used Bluehost/wordpress as well and although extremely powerful, it's such a slog on the backend.
Anyways, just curious if others have used Squarespace and what were results, pros, cons, etc. vs. Bluehost. THanks!
@landholders - I think I've encountered a few square space websites for real estate investors in the past. I think the advantage with them is that they're beautiful and easy to create. They may not have all of the functionality for real estate (or land specifically), but even so, they can probably cover most of the needs you'll have, especially if you're already familiar with them, that's another thing to consider.
What's the pricing on those websites these days?
Seth Williams My personal site is $96/year for hosting, etc. and $20 for the domain. There are less industry-specific plug ins, but they have added a lot of off-the-shelf functionality since I first started using several years ago. I've also used Cozy.co for payments on some garage storage we had for a bit, so I know there are other platforms that work well for other functions I may want from my site. All I need from the buying site (more or less) is an attractive way to convey information and a form that works, right?
Seth Williams Actually it's $18/mo. for their business hosting and they throw in a free domain ($20 discount). Not cheap, but I was able to make a pretty good-looking site in just a few hours. www.landholderinvestments.com
I set it up with a form for sellers, a form for buyers, and a page for property listings. I think I'll try your advice of creating a separate dba for the sell side, but probably cross that bridge when I come to it for now

Could Magneto be the one for you? I am satisfied with it, I haven't looked into Squarespace too much though.

The reason for me sticking with Magneto is in the cool extensions I was able to add to my website. The one I liked the most is an auction extension from https://amasty.com/auction-for-magento-2.html. It's so cool, adding that option to your store can get you more profit. The cool thing is that it is easy to do because it's set up already, and adding it would be the easiest thing. I am not sure if Squarespace has something like this.
