Build your own site without code on the Squarespace platform. Using a templated service like Squarespace means you will have a fully editable site in a very short time online and running. It will be a site that looks automatically good on a computer screen and on a small mobile device and it can be easily found and indexed by Google and linked to your social media profiles so you will have a basic online presence in no time.

Costs of running a Squarespace site
Squarespace is free for a 2 week trial so you will not need to pay initially. When you decide to go live you will need a credit card to pay a monthly subscription fee for hosting and running your site. Subscription fees starts at 9US$ a month. A .com web address is included and 24/7 support is included. If you want to use a .nz address for your site you will have to purchase a domain name separately. This is usually around $25 NZ/year.
