Squarespace includes great-looking templates for a variety of niches, as well as an easy onboarding process that makes it easy to build a website even if you have no technical skills.

How it works
To get started, Squarespace has you pick a base template from the 65+ available templates. The templates are divided by category and, as a general rule, have great modern, minimalist looks:
Once you choose your base template, you’ll need to create a Squarespace account (it’s free to start – so you can test things out with no credit card required).
And as soon as you create your account, Squarespace launches you into the editor so that you can customize your site.
Squarespace starts at $16 per month, billed annually. A small business will likely want the $23 per month plan, though.
