Take control of your site but never worry about maintenance or coding! The hosting, tools and expert help you need are here - all in one plan.
Our Quick Start tutorial will get you building your site in about 15 minutes.
And optimizing your site for mobile is easy-peasy!
We like using celebrity-endorsed platforms too! But the truth is, what's baked into Weeknight Website is nothing new, it's just a simpler, more manageable way of doing WordPress. Here's how our platform compares...
Squarespace is very easy for beginners to use, but you'll soon find out how limited you are in terms of customization and extendability.
When it's time to uplevel your business, you need to be on WordPress.
Weeknight Website allows you to connect your email list, have a robust online store, and have all the blogging power of WordPress! Plus, similar to Squarespace, because we are a managed platform you never have to worry about updating your plugins!
Weeknight Website is very similar to Wix on the "drag-and-drop" end of things.
The biggest issues we've seen with Wix sites comes to mobile responsiveness. With Weeknight Website, you can customize your site for every screen width and preview your experience for each size with a keystroke!
Weeknight Website is pretty similar to ShowIt in drag-and-drop customizability, plus the benefits of a WordPress blog.
Where we differ?
1. Because Weeknight is built directly on top of the WordPress platform, there is no need to upgrade plans or navigate to another platform to manage your blog. It's all included, in one place.
2. eCommerce: currently Weeknight Website offers WooCommerce, and Shopify integration is coming soon! ShowIt has no eCommerce options.
3. Plugin library and maintenance: we have more pro plugins and take care of updating them for you.
Elementor is a rad tool - but it's just that, ONE tool in your tool box. You still need to fill your toolbox with hosting, other plugins, and have a plan for handling site maintenance.
Weeknight Website has a similar builder to Elementor installed (Beaver Builder) with extensions custom to us! We use Beaver Builder because it's historically been more secure, developer-vetted and less buggy than big-E. Go to any side-by-side comparison and you'll see how similar they are!
With Weeknight Website, you get Beaver Builder PLUS hosting, support, and other premium plugins that are maintained for you, so the only decisions you have to make are design ones 🙂

Note that you will have to work with the Weeknight Website theme, and you will be limited to our network's premium plugin library. However, our network was built off years of experience designing and developing for WordPress, which means the plugins we've curated are the best and are managed by our team. If there is a plugin you must have that is not included, please email us and we will review it!

You will need to move the content over from your previous site to our network and build your site here. The WordPress importer tool is available for you to import (this will work for Squarespace if you use the "Export for WordPress" setting.)
