The WordPress killer?
Without needing to code or have web development experience, customers of Squarespace can use their comprehensive Content Management System with pre-built templates to launch their brand-new website quickly. Their approach's simplicity gives WordPress developers and classic hosting solutions a potential run for their money, as digitization is forcing more and more people online every year.
Background and history
Just like Facebook, Squarespace launched in a dorm room in the early 2000s, when the web was still fairly young. Anthony Casalena, who is still the CEO and a majority shareholder, got a loan from his parents and started building the company in-between his computer science classes at the University of Maryland.
