We use Squarespace as our preferred website building platform as we find it has many advantages over other website building systems:

Apart from being fully responsive across all browsers and mobile-optimised, Squarespace also offers unlimited bandwidth, pages and storage, including galleries and blogs. It is a safe, secure platform and has a dedicated 24/7 support team, and is very easy and intuitive to use. It even has its own built in website metrics so you can keep track of how well your website is performing.
