Pros: I created my first "real" website using Wix. I inherited a site that has been previously been posted on a different out of the box site. I looked at the other provider, and just felt the options were really limited as to what I could do, and what I wanted to do with the site. I wanted to take what we previously had, and take it up a notch. I wanted to add menu items, forms, video, pictures, and more. I started from scratch with the Wix template, and went from there. I wanted a menu option at the top of the page, but I wanted to have options on how I wanted that menu to look. Wix had a ton of templates you can choose from for menu's as well as page feel and look. You can also upload your own background (which I did) to add a theme to your site. I run a men's hockey league, so I added a rink background to our site. I was very happy with the many options I was able to choose from in order to create the site.

You can also add a page from this menu, hide a page, delete a page, or re-order how you want the pages to be displayed on your site. We run a spring league as well, and during our Winter league, I can hide those pages with ease, and just un-hide them when we are ready to start up our spring league.

Migrating my site from the old host to Wix was seamless as well, and Wix has many tutorials to help with all of this. It made moving my site very easy, and the video help was great!

Cons: You are limited to only so many forms on your site, as well as fields. This was the free forms, that you get with the site. You can pay for more fields, if you need them. Also some add in's cost money, but the ones they provide for free did the job for me.

Overall: Great experience with Wix, I would use this, and have suggested it to many of my friends. The ease of use, for an intermediate website person like myself made it a no brainer. I was really happy with the support as well as the tutorial videos and step by steps that Wix provides in order to make your job easier are great. I update my website every week, and Wix is so easy to do it on. I use google docs and excel sheets that are linked to my site, and display without issues.

Pros: My Husband and I used Wix for our wedding website. Instead of going with one of the traditional options like the Knot, we decided we wanted something different. Neither one of us had ever created a website before. However, with all the template and easy to use tools we were able to create a beautiful unique looking wedding website. Many of our family and friends commented on how wonderful it looked and were impressed with our website.

I love the fact that we could send out our invitation to our guests by emails and other updates along that way. The best feature about the e-blasts was that we could see how many people had opened the message. Since we were only sending out email invitation (which saved us a couple hundred dollars) it was great to be able to see if someone had not opened the message or received it. This helped us to identify people that we needed to call and let them know we had invited them to our wedding. It was helpful that our guests could RSVP and that information would be collected right by Wix in an easy to view format.

We used the free version of Wix and were able to do everything we needed to do for our wedding site. We used the three free e-blasts to send updates and invitations and even Christmas and Valentines day messages to all our friends and family. Now, 6 months after we have been married, we are still using the shout-outs (e-blasts) to let our friends and family know what we have been up to. Wix is a really user friendly website.

Cons: With the free version, you only get a small number of comments on your website. We did not realize this right away. The first week we send out our invitations, we got a bunch of comments on our website and then they stopped. We wondered why they stopped and then eventually a few months later we realized it was because all the free comments were used up. I wish we had been notified about this and could have chosen to pay for the comments just for the 6 months leading up to our wedding.

Overall: Wix frequently has good sales and promotions on the paid portion of their product. Sign up for their emails to receive these notifications about their specials.

Overall, I was super impressed with this free site.

Pros: Wix is the main platform I use. I have tried many other website making sites and this one is my favorite. Wix gets the job done. I was able to create a few years ago many websites for my company and for my ministry without all of the hassle. The way Wix set everything up I had hundreds of ways to use each tool they had given for my website. The tools to fix up my website aren't complicated or confusing. I hate looking around for hours trying to figure out how to use a website. It is so frustrating and this made my life so much easier. I also like how the Wix website can help you create a blog page. I love to blog, so this was helpful. As, I was working on creating my Wix website I had loads of themes to use and tools. Wix has many options for the free users and for the premium users I noticed. I love how Wix is for all types of careers. People who want to start a small business or musicians. Also, I have noticed they have websites or tools for people who want to sell items. Wix is also useful for graphic designers. I also like how I am able to add photos, images, and website links to my official pages on Wix. I can also add social media symbols to link my social media pages to my Wix.

Cons: I really have no dislikes, but I would give a suggestion. I really hope Wix continues to update like they have been doing. I would love to see loads of more themes. They already have so much, but I would love to see more. More wouldn't hurt lol =)

Overall: Overall, this Wix website site is amazing for bloggers and especially owners of businesses. I can't help but daily brag about this site and how easy it was for me to make one. I enjoy working daily on my websites because it brings inspiration and helps me to navigate my vision.

Easy to use, has many great features, and reasonably priced.

Pros: Clean and user friendly interface for building from scratch or editing templates.

Tons and tons of available options to choose from. (Colors, fonts, menus, etc.) Our websites don't look cookie cutter, they look custom built.

Connecting your own domain is super easy! It takes only a few minutes and is up and working immediately.

Access to all the features during building. Basically we can use all of the features (even if we have to upgrade to premium to use them live) so that I can be sure that we really do want to pay for those features.

On eCommerce site we can sell physical items and digital files.

Ability to make eCommerce site a members only site.

Forms are easy to use. (They could be improved a little. See Cons section.)

Can edit the mobile site and the desktop site independently of each other without edits on one being applied to the other.

Prices are very reasonable.

Overall, Wix has taken a massive amount of work off my shoulders and still produces high quality, custom looking websites.

Cons: Google ad vouchers are a little misleading. They only apply to new Google Ads users. So we purchased an upgrade mainly to get the ad voucher and then read the fine print that said we couldn't use it because we have an existing account.

Better options for reserving/booking. We rent out display items and really need a calendar that is accessible to users of our website so they can see when display items are available in their area and when they are checked out.

Better options for customizing auto emails to those that place orders. The majority of the email is not editable and doesn't really fit our needs.

More customization and ability to copy and paste forms. I built out a form and realized I had put it on the wrong page of the site. I was not able to move it from the current page to the correct page. I had to delete it and rebuild it on the correct page. I would also like to be able to store the forms so that I can use them on other sites rather than having to rebuild each time.

Overall: Overall, I highly recommend this product. There are very few additions/changes that I would suggest. And again, the price is more than reasonable.

Pros: There are a few things that I really love about Wix. One being that it is very user friendly. Functionality with any program usually gets my biggest critique. It doesn't take long while using wix to know that it is a very functional web designing site with many widgets that help you along the way. The newest update to Wix sites has also brought some wonderful new features that have been much needed. Now, you website design can be easily made and with a polished look that most people pay big money for.

Cons: There isn't too much that I don't like about Wix but the things that I don't like I feel are of hug importance. The mobile editing tool. The mobile editing tool still lacks in functionality and versatility. There's still so much you're unable to customize within the mobile editing that it can end up making your website on your phone look less than professional. A lot of things that are easily customized on the desktop editing are not availing for customizing in the mobile editing leading to a lot of frustration.

The design on different computers. The designs on Wix never look the same on every computer. Some design pieces are missing, the design doesn't fit the screen right etc. I think if they could figure out how to make a design look right on every computer screen this would help keep that polished look for everyone.

Social Sharing. There are no sharing buttons on Wix for visitors to share on social sites. There are only link to the social media sites. Something like a calendar or a list should have the option to add a share button so that visitors can easily share what their reading, buying, or booking to their social sites so that others can join in.

Overall: Overall, Wix really is a great platform. It is user friendly, it has great functionality, and also provides multiple services within each bundle they sell. However, I would like to see Wix update a little bit further into the current web design era we're in. Offer features that work in a social media run web world!

Pros: Creating your first website can sound quite tedious, especially if you don't know the first thing about web design (SEO, headers, alt tags, etc.). With over 500 beautifully seamless templates to choose from you can guarantee there will be one of your liking that will help you reach a nice starting point. After spending many hours searching for the best entry level, website development platform, I made the decision to go with Wix (rather than some of its well-known equivalents, i.e. WordPress or SquareSpace). I created my first website for an academic, student led organization in college without any prior knowledge in web development. My experience with Wix greatly exceeded my expectations; I quickly crafted and completed my own website in as little as a week, for free. If you're looking to build a website that is intuitive and low cost, Wix won't disappoint; there are millions of "WIXers" around the world. Keep in mind there are situations where Wix may suite your needs better than others. The free plan would work great for anyone at an entry-level, freelancer, start-up/non-profit organization, and/or even bloggers looking to craft a simplistic website for little to no cost associated. As things progress, you can manage your subscription as needed; for complex websites or fairly large websites I would be more inclined to go with a paid plan of Wix or switching to an alternative like WordPress (which is close to equivalent in price comparison). This route would be more beneficial for large sized businesses, or fairly large, stable organizations; as it would provide more bandwidth, storage, and assistance in development. For beginning gurus you may find that the website management/development are out of your expertise, (coding, installing, backups, etc.) so there are times you may need to involve outside help. Pros: - Easy drop and drag web development platform suitable or any entry level or beginners with little to no experience and no prior knowledge of coding required - Options to create website utilizing either: Wix editor (for those who would like to create their own website) or Wix Artificial Design Intelligence (for those less tech savvy, you can complete a questionnaire on what you would like your website to look like and have Wix assemble it for you!) - Provides over 400 pristine and stunning templates you can choose from and personalize to your needs - Offers all the website necessities to help you keep your website authority up to par: GDPR compliance settings and forms, SEO, mobile web-builder, google page rankings, and analytics on web performance - Compatible with various plugins and applications you can add-on to your website (you can almost always find any plugin your need or one very similar to the one you may be looking for) - Features that allow you to add forms to web pages, create social media posts, live-chat with web visitors, embed videos, market events, create blog posts, etc.

Cons: - The free version of this platform places Wix advertisements on your website and does not provide the option to personalize your own domain (free version subdomains are set up like this: username.wixsite.com) - Utilizing the free version, make sure to optimize all images and compress videos before uploading to your website to maximize the amount of storage available to you. You may also notice that the free version of Wix tends to take a while to load your website (heavily automating your website will most definitely slow things down)

Pros: There are not enough words to be able to affectingly describe how much I love wix and their website building platform. Being someone who is a designing and uses many Adobe design software, I feel very at home with Wix website editor. Everything is laid right there in front of you and there are very few page limitations. You can drag and drop elements, put text or pictures where you want to, then edit there look with the built in tools. How you see it is what you get.

You can even check what it will look like on a mobile phone and edit that separately from your desktop website. So if there is an element that works on a desktop browser but not a mobile phone, not worries, just hide it from the mobile version.

There are a nice supply of free app or add on option that Wix supplies for free but there are also some great third party apps that you can add to your plan if you are needing something more.

And if not of those options work, there is also the option for coding your own.

Cons: My only current complaint with Wix is the lack of ability of giving a team member access to only edit a certain part of the website. It would be nice to be able to give someone access only to their portion of the website to edit instead of the whole website site. There are too many people that I worry will mess up something larger by accident if they have access to the whole site so I end up having to do it all myself.

Overall: I needed a website that would give the more advance user plenty of options and the more novice users the ability to still work on their portion of the site. Wix offers that. I could not be more pleased with wix

Pros: Wix makes designing websites super easy for anybody of any skill level. If you're new to designing websites with software, you and use the AI to create a website for you, and then you just have to go in and edit specific information. If you want to have a little more control, you can disable the AI and go to a regular editor where you have a lot more control over minute details. Wix also has a vast selection of apps to integrate into your website, many of them free and others will usually have free versions or trials. Some of the apps are created by Wix, but most are third party, though they also have a review system so you can see what other users think of the apps. Also, when I say there's a large variety, I mean there are a number of apps for pretty much anything you can think of. Need to schedule appointments? Got it. Want to keep track of analytics? Probably dozens of apps to choose from. Need to create a menu? Easy. Social media integration, newsletters, just about anything.

They also have a number of different plans, depending on your needs. They range from very inexpensive to very affordable for a small business, depending on if you're ok with Wix displaying their logo on the site, how much bandwidth you need, if you want to have an online store (surprisingly affordable with Wix, by the way), if you want Google Ad Credits, etc.

Cons: Being so customizable, some things that feel like they should be intuitive, aren't. Disabling the AI that created the website (if you chose that path) is a little difficult, but it's necessary if you want control over customization. Setting up a store is a little tedious, as you have to enter a lot of information for each individual item; I'd love to see them find a way to ease this process. I'd also love to see the shipping options expanded a little, like options for delivering products if the client/customer is in the same town or within X miles of your location.

Overall: I've used a number of website development software, and this is easily my favorite. I've looked into website creation as a side gig, and if that took off, Wix would likely be my go to for creating clean, modern, and effective websites.

Pros: Being an expert in the web building niche, I have reviewed and tested dozens of website builders. This allows me to offers you the unbiased Wix review, providing the most substantial pros and cons of the system that can affect the website creation process as well as the result. My experience allows me to state that Wix is definitely the service, which is worth the attention of all users, with no exception at all. It is equally understandable to newbies and web design pros, which is explained by the intuitive nature, simplicity and variety of features the system unveils to ensure the unsurpassed web building experience. Wix has grown in popularity during the recent years - just have a look around to see how many websites have been created with it lately! The platform has won worldwide recognition, having replaced dozens of web design tools, which were popular before. Its customer base has exceeded 120 millions of users from around 200 countries of the world and it still keeps growing, which is another proof of the system's usability, professionalism and quality. It is absolutely great for average users willing to launch decent websites for commercial or non-commercial use! Ease of Use Wix is a universal WYSIWYG website builder, which allows creating different types of websites in a quick and hassle-free way. Wix is based on the SaaS platform, which allows users to create and manage their websites from any mobile device. A convenient drag-and-drop website editor makes it possible to add the blocks and adjust their positions to give a website the required design. No web design or coding skills are needed to do that - so intuitive, simple and user-friendly the system is. Wix Editor and Wix ADI Wix allows creating websites in two different ways depending upon the skills and knowledge of a user. Wix Editor is a standard option that offers an opportunity to select and customize a template that comes up to your needs most of all. Wix ADI is an advanced tool, which ensures smooth and intuitive web building process. What you have to do is to provide the info about your company and the system will automatically generate a website for you. Mobile-Optimized Template Gallery Wix has an extensive gallery of niche-specific mobile-optimized templates. The system also offers a set of advanced design customization tools that make it possible to give your website the preferred look and functionality. It is also possible to access Wix App Market here to choose between dozens of free and paid applications that can be integrated into your website to ensure stunning website performance. Blogging and eCommerce Features Apart from creating standard websites, Wix can be used as a blogging and eCommerce platform. This unveils lots of new opportunities to users, who intend to establish their own web-based businesses. Affordable Pricing Policy Wix pricing policy is worth the attention as well. It has a free unlimited plan, the functionality of which is enough to test all the features of the system and five paid plans with diverse functionality that may cover all the web building needs.

Cons: No Template Change Option Wix doesn't allow changing the template on the go. Once you have chosen a theme to start your website with, you'll have to keep working with it. Otherwise, all the submitted content will be lost. This is a drawback for most inexperienced users, but it's possible to avoid the problem by making the right choice. Doubtful Connect Domain Plan The Connect Domain Plan allows connecting a domain name to your website, but it does not remove the system ad from it. Thus, there is no need to invest into this plan. Instead, it makes sense to upgrade to one of the higher plans that come with no ads included. These are only a few wix disadvantages, which, however, are not that crucial and can't overwhelm the benefits of the system. As of today, Wix is, undoubtedly, the leader in the web design niche, which doesn't have any similar rivals to compete with.

Pros: Wix makes website building easy. I've built several websites on this platform and always get great results. There are hundreds of templates to choose from and they are easy to customize. I also love that Wix keeps up with trends and sends helpful hints via email when new options become available. They seem to be ahead of the curve.

They've recently introduced a different way to build a website. Instead of picking the template and customizing, the software asks questions about the web page and company, establishes your preferences in color and style - then builds the website for you. It's revolutionary and I love the results. My clients have all loved this new option and it saves me a ton of time. This option is easy to customize too and the layouts the software picks are very modern.

I also love all the add ons you can put on the website. I use the social feeds, blogging, event registration forms, and photo gallery add ons frequently.

Cons: My only real criticism of Wix is that many of the add-ons offer basic functions, however in order to get true functionality you have to pay for the add-on. I've encountered this a lot in the event registrations, forms, booking, and social feeds. I often find myself rethinking putting add ons on the website because the free version almost never has all the functions I need.

I understand Wix is a business however and needs to find additional sources of revenue.

Overall: Easy DIY websites

Pros: Beautiful, easy to use templates

Cons: Limited to using only the apps in their app market.

Overall: Several years ago, I looked at several entry level website providers. I am not saying they are entry level providers, I mean that they offer entry level website feature sets. Because I had no experience building websites, I chose WIX over Wordpress. I thought Wordpress was a lot of work to learn. My site needs some functionality but it is not complex site. I also did not need an ecommerce site because I am not involved in ecommerce. So I chose WIX. I love WIX. I love the beauty of its templates, I love the flexibility of its design. I am not using the AI feature so I don't know anything about it. The WIX tutorials are some of the best I have ever used. The knowledge base answers nearly every question. I would recommend it to others and I would use it again. But for a different kind of website.

Th big problem with WIX is they do not give you access to their source code. Also, if you want to add apps to your site, you must select from their app market. I will say there is a good selection that seems to be growing but what happens is that you end up cobbling together the available apps in order to offer additional services i.e. surveys, instruction manuals, ebooks, free trials and so forth. And WIX offers no live support. You must rely on the support of the app providers, many of whom are very good, I will say. But you can't change WIX. After many intensive months of learning WIX and its app market, I realized I could have learned Wordpress and had much easier time integrating apps from a much wider selection, as in - almost anything.

So buying WIX depends on your needs. My website offers a lot of educational experiences and materials, so Wordpress would probably have been better, but WIX is enough. First figure out what functionality you need for your website, then look over the WIX app market to see what is available, then decide. Also WIX's blog is still fairly new and is a bit quirky. But if I were selling arts, food, jewelry, clothing, beautiful things, then I would say WIX all the way.

Recommendations to other buyers: Before you buy first figure out what functionality you need for your website, then look over the WIX app market to see what is available, then decide. Don't assume you will be able to get whatever you want.

Pros: I like how quick you can put together a basic website for cheap (or even free). It's easy to navigate and everything is very straightforward, with handy tutorials in the off chance that some functionality is confusing. There's an Artificial Intelligence section that makes it even easier for people who aren't proficient in technology whatsoever. All you do is answer a few basic questions about what you want, and it puts an entire site together for you, including verbiage. It's incredible! I know my way around computers and code, but for the times my family members need a really short and sweet website for their very small company or service, I go in and get them something started within minutes. The design of WIX is very clean and concise as well, making it a pleasant experience rather than a stressful and frustrating one. I once had to create an extremely complex and in-depth website, and although I struggled, wix still managed to come through and provide almost everything I required within the site. I was very impressed.

Cons: I don't like how constricted things are. If you're looking for a very specific site, or way of doing things (chances are there's a widget already designed and built for you) but you can't customize everything to a T (if you don't know how). You can go into the backend and fiddle with the CSS coding, but that means nothing to anyone who doesn't know what they're doing. I wouldn't recommend this to someone who wants a complex site with multiple layers and concepts, as it becomes difficult to maintain and design, and keep consistent. There's not much flexibility when it comes to the HTML (from a basic user standpoint) so if you have very specific ways you'd like your site to function, respond etc, this isn't for you and you should hire a professional to build one for you.

Pros: Wix is an online advancement platform that enables clients to make sites that are good with both personal computers and cell phones. Clients select a layout to begin their site with, and afterward drag, drop, and alter various components to create a site as large or as little as they need. How does Wix function? When you first visit Wix, you can choose a layout for your site (and Wix has many free formats for you to look over). From that point, you can adjust each part of each page on your site to address your issues. You can include content and pictures anyplace, and customize every page down to the last information. Furthermore, as opposed to expecting to compose the code of every page, drag and drop every component onto the page, and afterward utilize individual toolbars to modify them.

Pros: Wix is a great CMS platform for publishing websites, it has many pros including: 1) Easy to use Design Editor - Wix has a true WIYSIWYG editor with drag and drop functionality. I have been able to set up websites way quicker on Wix than I ever did on Wordpress. And you can easily drag elements around the design and they stay exactly where you leave them, which can make for some eye sour or some fun whichever way you look at it. 2) SEO features are on point - One thing a lot of people do not know is that Wix has the best SEO settings of any CMS today. In fact, Google ranks Wix as one of its content partners and within a few hours, you can easily have your pages indexed in Google. 3) All Templates are customizable - Unlike most CMS platforms, any templates you use in Wix can be customized to your heart's desire. I thought this was a hoax at first coming from another CMS but once I played around with my Wix account, I was able to edit templates and even messed around with HTML coding. 4) Wix Apps are functional - Wix has a number of apps that you can use to enhance your website and these apps actually work. They are not plugins but work almost like programs with Wix if that makes sense. The number of apps is a bit underwhelming though. 5) Price points do drop from time to time - Wix runs promos on yearly hosting almost monthly so you can find a good deal for premium hosting if you keep your eye out for a deal.

Cons: Wix has a couple of cons though: 1) Pricing is a bit weird, its more per website - When you set up a Wix account, it is limited to one website. If you want to add another domain, you have to set up another Wix account for this. If there was a way to manage multiple websites from one dashboard or account it would really be helpful. 2) Apps selection seems underwhelming - As mentioned, Wix does have very useful apps, but the selection feels a bit underwhelming. Maybe it is because I have come from using Wordpress a lot but it just feels like more could be done in this department.

Easy to use to those who don't know programming logic and wish to build their website as they want.

Pros: Wix provides most of the tools to build almost all categories from personal to business website.As I am not good in programming wix has given life to my first website which I build for my personal use but as I got working hands on wix interface, I started building website for other clients also.Soon my work gets appreciated because the template wix facilitate is latest and easy to customize so the same template looks different and apart from endless tools which we can purchase and use ,wix provides FREE app to use make site total professional. Adsense is the most demanded facility that most of the customer wish to add on their website. SEO,Analytics are tools that every developer longing to work on but wix make it easy to understand.There is a lot to write but I finish it off discussing the CODE feature which provides developer "build a database" and "video tutorial" to guide.I find wix as complete web development kit and love to recommend you all .

Cons: Wix shows its branded ads over Free and Connect Domain plans I think if it will provide limited time facility like paid plan for first time user then new user can enjoy more their work.Being a wix user ,somtime at the begning, I think of switching my website to another platform but seems more difficult to do so.

Pros: Simple, easy to use and powerful. I didn't know what coding is but I needed a builder to help me with building a porfolio website and I found Wix. It helped me to build an impressive website with all the magic animation (if you're creative you can do so much!) All the drag-n-drop function makes websites fun and even a 5th grader can create his own site. Wix has templates but it's way more fun to customize your own and make it unique. The cost to host it with Wix and have a domain isn't terrible either. Best fit for personal portfolio or young entrepreneurs didn't have a fund to hire web developers.

P/S: I was a designer at the moment I found WIX, but it made me become more interested in Website, eventually I learn more about programming and languages, and grow out of Wix, but Wix sure was the first wonderful step in my career transitioning (I'm now a web designer/developer)

Cons: It was absolutely perfect for me when I didn't know any coding/programming. You can pay a little to get rid of the little Wix text at the bottom but the free version isn't the worst. But once you have knowledge about backend, Wix can be a bit limited (as to the functions and customization)

Overall: It was more than awesome! Again, Wix has helped me with first steps transforming from a print designer to a web designer/developer, and I'm pretty thankful that I have found a tool that brought me the interest of development. 10/10, highly recommend for people who needs a quick but beautiful website without coding knowledge.

Pros: Today, when we thought about having an own website, we thought that it will cost around 10000 - 20000 Rs. So, we drop that idea and lag in this modern world. But now, no need to worry guys, for you only a platform had been created to help you overcome this problem. Wix helps you not only to create free websites but also it provides you with lots of designs and templates. Wix also publish some blogs to help you so that you can use all the features of Wix efficiently. However, what we want today? Money of course! So Wix also helps you to get some earning by giving you some free-ads as well as paid ones. I think that it's a better tool offered by tenfold which saves our lot of time and making us effective. At least, you must try it for once (irrespective of its cons, it is a better option).

Cons: This application gets some bad things also. Do you want to know? Here are those! The Wix may include a lot of templates, designs, themes etc. but working on that is slow even you have a broadband. Another one says that Wix doesn't support much as well as it arouses some problems when it is used in Google Chrome (like click and drag features get jumped, cause misplaced texts, images etc.). Most importantly which you must remember is that if you want to customize it to the fullest you must have to convert the account to premium mode. That's what I don't like about it!!Last, I want to say its pros and cons are overweighing each other but still I recommend you use it and get on the path of modernization.

Comments: Creating dedicated websites to promote property for sale is a core part of my business. I needed a way to market real estate that focuses on an individual property and wasn't more advertising for a real estate professional and their entire inventory of listings. With Wix, creating websites for home sellers makes their property look so good, my clients have second thoughts about selling!

Pros: The Wix app market is full of free apps to enhance the visitor's experience with professional videos, and galleries. Their business apps can help do everything from bringing traffic to your site to communicating with visitors to setting up an online store. Connecting a Wix website to a domain name is easy. I've never experienced any security issues with their cloud-based platform.

Cons: There are less expensive options to purchase a domain name outside of Wix, so I would recommend connecting to a domain name you already own.

Recommendations to other buyers: Wix is constantly introducing new features. Their latest allows you to create paid video courses. If you have a course on Udemy or one of the other course platforms, setting it up on a Wix site is an alternative worth exploring. Wix is my go-to platform for creating websites for my business and for clients. Once you create a client site, it's easy to transfer it to them and remain an admin of the site.

Pros: Wix is simple. Sometimes it's deceptively simple. It doesn't get any much more drag and drop than this. You can do a lot of stuff that seems complicated because there's a widget or tool for nearly everything. I like how everything is set up and organized, in reasonable, understandable categories. Things that seem hard to do with web design are streamlined with Wix. I like how quickly you can get a page made to your liking, without a lot of pouring over small details or code to get things sized right, aligned right. I would say the best feature of Wix is how you can just move things around the page so easily - and it helps you line things up (text/photos) without a lot of skill.

Cons: If you are coming to use Wix from any other web authoring platform or even help you, writing web pages out by hand (with code, etc) the ease of Wix can be a bit of a learning curve. What was once complicated is now simple, and it can be hard to figure out sometimes exactly what simple tool to use to do something that was once complicated or involved. You kind of have to change your approach to making web pages, as its more like desktop publishing these days. Things can be a bit on the slow-to-load side too, but I can't really fault that for Wix itself. The biggest obstacle was the re-learning how to do something I already knew how to do.

Overall: Overall, it was well worth it to update my skill set and knowledge base with Wix. After about a week or so of experimenting, I started to understand how to do things quickly and easily. And now after using it for almost a year, I can't imagine going back to doing websites any other way. Wix can help you make a really impressive website, with lots of features that were once for advanced website makers, all so much easier. I'm glad I got over the learning curve and decided to use Wix.

Pros: I have been using Wix for about 3 years and I love it. They are constantly improving their service and adding features. The very best aspect of using Wix for my website hosting is the ability to build my own site from the ground up or use one of their many beautiful templates. Their template library spans all shapes, sizes and functions for any possible type of website that you are looking for. The templates are easy to adapt to your vision and brand, or you have the option of starting from scratch. As a graphic designer, the ease of use and the ability to design as much or as little as I have time for is priceless. The price for the service is also super reasonable for the features that you get. With the option for a multitude of apps and plug ins you can set up a portfolio or use their ecommerce options for a full online store. Definitely would recommend for experienced or new to the business users alike. I've never experienced any issues with the site itself or the traffic handling and all of my business flows through it regularly.

Cons: There isn't much to dislike about Wix. Whether you choose the free option or one of the many tiered pay-to-host options, Wix has a lot to offer its customers.

Overall: Easy to set up and go, my website is one of the aspects of my business that I worry about the least. Wix makes it simple to reach my audience with very little effort and no hassle.

Pros: If you are new and need just a website without hassel or rapid deployment of your content wix is for you. You can get a running website wtihin hours with wix. Select a template(there are lots of free templates available) edit and done you are up and running with wix free service. The price is resonable to the feature wix offers, and you have their support team and video tutorials to help.

For selling goods and digital content you also can setup your e-commers website within hours and with in affordable pricing it is easy.

Cons: You cannot export wix to another platform as easily as opensource projects can do. You need to manually export pages and posts to another platform, which is a pain for me. And you have to use wix subdomain and ads as a free user.

Overall: I started using wix from 2011 and left in 2013, because it is not as expendable as opensource cms are. But if I need a website without any tech knowledge and will make up within a day then I always prefer to my clients to use wix as it fits that's criteria. For new user and not so tech-savvy users wix is an awesome tool to show your content.

Pros: I liked it's highly intuitive and easy to use nature. I was surprised at how quickly I could create a website (it doesn't require coding). With this software, you just have to choose between Wix ADI or Wix Editor. Wix Editor uses the functionality of drag and drop, meaning you can reposition anything on your website by just holding and moving the item wherever you want. I also found its premium features to be excellent. They make visitors think you paid a lot of money for a custom-built website.

Cons: I didn't like its editor (black canvas). If you're not careful, it often messes with your website's structure. Unlike other website builders, you cannot switch templates after the website goes live. You get locked to it. However, these drawbacks are not a deal breaker for me. I found the software useful.

Overall: If I could describe this software in one word, it would be Freedom. Wix gave me so much freedom; from having numerous elements at my disposal to designing my own themes from scratch. It is used by over 100 million globally and for good reason-it allows you to create your own website in an affordable and hassle-free way.

Wix is easy to use for everyone, whether you are a computer expert or just have a grasp of the basics (like myself). Wix has established itself as a leading website builder in the market due to its classic templates and numerous options it provides. You can choose from over 500 templates and use its incredible drag-drop editor to create a website. You can also allow Wix ADI to design the website for you. You just have to answer a few questions on how you would like your website to look like and before you know it, it will be created before your eyes.

Pros: The best thing about Wix, is that they provide template to start with, this creates some confidence on users like me that have no experience or no degrees website creator. Wix has a great dashboard that make it easy to me to perform and create and also add videos, images text etc.. Whatever I did on the design studio the change was applied directly without taking that long or lagging out. I started with the free version templates but later I had to pay monthly because its definitely worth it.

Cons: I dislike that the free version templates have a limit on putting features like media. I started with the free version which I wanted to have a lot of videos in my web page but whenever I reached a certain amount it stopped me from uploading more. No big issue but I thought it was important to mention it.

Overall: My experience with Wix is nothing more than pleasant. I did communicate with customer service and they help me out with a great attitude. Other than that, I think that Wix are pioneers on the industry which are getting better every now and then.

Pros: - In my opinion, Wix has been the easiest and most supportive web builder for my business.

- The flexibility of creating on any template is unmatched!

- The App tools, like Booking, Blog, and Store, has helped me build the type of website I've always imagined.

- The help with SEO is brilliantly intertwined into the site's backend.

- The announcement feature and customer login ability is also a plus!

- Without the complications of using multiple platforms to link to my website, Wix allows me to do it all from their backend.

Cons: The downfall is that after adding and changing design elements to your website, it's not automatically mobile optimized. We still have to edit the mobile version, which takes so much longer. I would love for it to all auto-optimize for mobile capability, without the additional designing needed.

Overall: Wix houses my business website and allows me to organize booking, product and service sales, blogging (with multiple users) and customer communication through its platform.

Pros: I love the ease of use when it comes to Wix. Wix is simple to navigate. The left hand menu shows you exactly where your menu, content, forms, images, and everything are located, and when you click on them, they take you to one place to make your edits. Unlike WordPress which has a more advanced navigation, Wix makes is easy for a laymen to create their own website. It is free to create a site, and then a paid service if you have your own domain. The pricing was fair for the term.

Cons: The free version does not have as many theme or form options. Once you pay for premium to connect your domain, it opens an array of options for you. So basically, the free version, like most any program, is a limited one.

Overall: I used Wix and continue to for my small business website. I do regular edits to add services as we grow. My site is a simple one, but it is just the way I want it. My theme has clean lines, and a great flow through the content (up to date themes - scrolling content, not static pages). It is so easy to add images, edit my verbiage, add new sections (like testimonials), and I can even have event registrations if I hold a conference or training. Wix makes it very easy for a non-web designer to create a nice, professional looking website without the knowledge of HTML.

The price was very reasonable for the Premium version when I added my domain. I found a coupon that offered me 50% of the price, so search for coupons and get your website creation on with Wix!

Pros: My favorite thing about Wix is all the options it offers users to customize their websites. Unlike other platforms, such as blogspot, Wix comes with more easily customizable templates so your website can stand out! Moreover, I have found it easier to use than other website building platforms, as a tech-novice. Wix has been a life-saver when it comes to designing simple websites for my classes each semester. Students can easily access the website and navigate it without trouble.

Cons: I find the paid version of Wix to be too expensive, and not really a good value for the few extra services it provides. I would like Wix better if there were better paid features, such as having an online consultant help you build the webpage. As a college instructor, I do not always have time to build and update my websites, so paid customer service options would be ideal.

Overall: Overall, Wix has positively impacted by professional life by streamlining the time and process of updating and building websites. The variou design options never leave me bored, or make my page look unprofessional/ lacking creativity. I highly suggest Wix to those who want to build websites but do not have the tech-skills to do so.

Cost-effective, graphical UI, highly customizable, add-ons, lots of themes. All in one package.

Pros: - Themes/Design: There are so many themes, it would seem impossible not to find one to suit your preference. Within just a few minutes you will have a visually-appealing website template to start your customizing and content creation. You do not need to be a professional web developer to create a personalized and profession website, using this product.

- Intuitive User Interface: A new user will be able to start modifying and adjusting their website by simply clicking on the editor interface. When cursing over a design item doesn't provide the options you are looking for, clicking on items reveal useful options.

- Pricing: I like that the basic package price offers full store support, albeit with a few less marketing features offered from the higher tiers. However, for many, the basic package will be more than sufficient to create an online store, blog, or business site. I think this is a huge value.

-Wix App Market: In-house marketplace for adding features to your website in a single supported platform. I think this adds a lot of value to users who not web developers (people who would use the Wix service) to add powerful functionality quickly and easily to their website.

Cons: -User Interface response is a bit sluggish/latent. Accessing features via pop up menus, or simply clicking buttons in the editor can take a split-second for dialog windows or nested interface windows to appear. While the interface is fully functional, a more performance-efficient interface would be on my wish list.

-Wix Apps Market may cost you more money to operate your website: Not all Wix Apps are free. Depending on your needs for your website, certain add-ons may drive the cost of your website up. The Wiz Apps market adds a lot of value in terms of added features that are easily deployable for adding value to your website, but the cost to roll operate the website should be considered when comparing all the web-hosting offerings available.

Pros: When it comes to customization, Wix has a lot of cool features; in fact Wix might be second best only to Wordpress, but Wix is certainly a lot easier to use and comes with a learning curve that is a fraction of that required to master Wordpress. On and off, I have been using Wix for about seven years. Unlike many similar platforms that have a static user interface, meaning that the user is limited by the "theme" as per the design of their website; Wix users have an almost unlimited options as regarding how the set-up and design their viewer interface of their website. When I was running a non-for-profit business Wix worked great for me as it allowed me to communicate my message and tell my company's story clearly and directly.

Cons: Wix is very restrictive when it comes to which shopping cart one is allowed to use. Stripe is my online payment processing platform of choice, and for whatever reason Stripe does not allow for my to use Stripe in my region. For this reason, and as efficacy in online business transactions are my utmost concern when creating a website, most of the time I'm not able to use Wix and tend to be disappointed when I do use it.

Overall: If you're using Wix to create a brilliant website and you have no interest in online commerce I highly recommend using Wix. If you're building a website in order to make money, look elsewhere.

Pros: For a very competitive price, my team and I got a robust tool that's pretty simple to use out of the box. I enjoy of easy access features and user friendly layouts when it comes to website builders; and Wix has that. I particularly like the free templates that Wix comes with, there's enough choices there for anyone whether they're designing their first website or is a season pro at it. Furthermore, when you first start designing a website, the Wix ADI compiles a rough outline of your prospective website. I really like that feature.

There's also a free version to use as well. It obviously doesn't come with nearly as many features, but I think that it's a great way to introduce any designers to design. You could theoretically have designers trained on Wix before even purchasing an enterprise version.

Cons: My team and I had to also build a mobile version of our website as well. That was a bit more tricky as I think Wix is really optimized for desktop format.

Wix also isn't a pure CMS so there's a few niche features that's missing. Also, this is very nit picky here, but you do have to incorporate the Wix URL in your URL. But if this is intended to be used for clients,I'd just pay for the domain which is not a hassle.

Overall: I worked with a team in another country on a client website and was given an opportunity to introduce Wix to the team. This team was more accustomed to using other CMS in the past. It was easy to get junior designers and devs up to speed with Wix and have them churn out content and design quickly after on-boarding. We were pleasantly surprised at how well some of the base templates fit into our designs. It was a good experience with Wix.

Pros: I love the fact that wix enables me create stunning websites, that's what was advertised right?

The first time i tried wix, i was a bit sceptical about its ease of use. I has tried a lot of drag and drop site builders before and i can boldly say that none was as efficient as WIX.

I had no programming knowledge then and i had no problem .

Fast forward to today, i have knowledge of HTML, CSS, PHP and Javascript. I can build awesome websites from scratch. Yet i still go back to use WIX.

It's being awesome being able to create landing pages for my clients in munites.

Wix actually inspired me to learn web development.

Over all i can say wix is :

Easy to use;

Efficient;

Worth its money(its free yo!)

Cons: The sites i build really have long names as the URL .

Likemyemail.wixsite.com/name

That could be inproved on because after going on to buildingbsites with it, i have to go ahead to create a shortened URL for it.

Except if i link a real domain to the site, which most of the time i do not have money for

I would also appreciate if thethere could be a way to hide the "powered by wix" banner.

Overall: I have built awesome landing pages with WIX (And not so awesome ones too).

I have been able to make great websites with smooth user experience with the lower of wix and i can say its been awesome!

Wix is a good website builder tool,unlike others like Wordpress this is not a open source software.

Pros: As i mentioned this is not a open source software so all its feature and functions are controlled ,developed and monitored thoroughly to make sure its working.

i have found this easy to use and work with. we can use easy and simple method of drag and drop for Placing different menus , options ,button like cart, picture, photographs while content building and we will get the same/mirror image of our website when published. Even a non-technical user feel comfortable while using this tool.

support is quite good as compared to others in the same category and available on phone,mail with and chats and is also comes with less pricing compared to others. Over the long term this requires less maintenance and cost cheaper.

Cons: Customisation is a problem here as it provide very limited customisation capability. if you wanted to change the template then it feel to be a tedious task as once you change it you need to recreate the your whole page again.Even though wix has introduced new tools for e-commerce but still it is not good with e-commerce related website building or we can say that wix do not have enough good/advanced tool for e-commerce so will not recommend this for e-commerce.

apart from these i do not see any cons for Wix and found it quite useful.

Pros: Wix is a nice platform for creating your own personalized website. It includes countless features (both free and for a fee options) to truly personalize and style it to your own. A few examples include photo albums, online client booking/calendar, music player, client reviews, etc. It definitely has a learning curve and some tasks take a lot of research or reaching out to help (customer service is great!) but overall, it is a nice platform. Definitely be prepared to spend some money if you want a website without Wix promotion ads or some of the extra app features.

Cons: Like putting a puzzle together, some pieces can be difficult to match up. Certain features (such as photo album privacy settings, passwords, etc.) are difficult to figure out. I use the free website which includes ads promoting Wix which all my clients can see. I don't necessarily like that, but I do understand that comes with the price you pay. There are so many free options I get even without paying a monthly or annual fee, so it all evens out in my opinion.

Overall: Wix is my business website platform. I don't know what I would do without it! I was able to make a totally personal website which I can go back to any time and redesign (awesome!). My clients are able to book online right through my website and that takes a huge burden off of me personally. My clients can also access their photo albums and download their photos straight from the site on their own time which saves me time creating a gift box and money on shipping.

Simple, but needs a little help.

Pros: Wix is a great web-based software that allows for the creation of simple and easy to use websites. It's responsibly comfortable to use and and the interface take a little getting used to but is fairly simple once you get the hang of it. If you would like to go a little more in depth with your design Wix will allow you to do this. You do however need to know a little about web design to get the best results.

A big plus is that there's a free version! If you don't want to break the bank or are a lowly college student just looking to improve your web-design skills, or are just messing around with webdesign as a possibly hobby. This is a great feature that will help you get started without paying a dime.

Cons: Perhaps to simple. There's a point where you site may start to look like everyone else's. Despite various different options as far as layout, typography and sizing goes, its the elements you bring from outside of Wix that are going to set your site apart form the masses.

Gets a little pricey (if say your a college student) to get rid of thous Wix ad bars. If you decide that your site is ready for the world and want to start using it in a professional capacity then it can get a little expensive to get rig of those ad bars. And if your really wanting to make a good impression this is pretty essential.

Overall: Overall I enjoyed using Wix as far as creating simple and clean sites. Don't be deceived by the commercials though because its not quite as easy as they make it look and unless you have some good photography and video to accompany your website then it may not look as fantastic as you first imagined.

Pros: Wix is the perfect platform for someone who is beginning to build websites, or for smaller websites. Although it has less impressive pre made templates as competitors like Squarespace, it is the cheaper option and allows you to fully build a website for free before deciding if you want to pay for a domain and officially publish your website under a proper domain (websites can be published for free but will include WIX ads). The customization available, though it requires some true learning to truly understand, is wonderful and allows one to build a good-looking and impressive site with no coding experience.

Cons: My only wish would be that Wix had more pre made site or page templates, though they now have the Wix Site Builder which uses AI to somewhat mitigate that problem. The experience could be a little more user friendly in terms of learning how to customize, but overall is definitely doable and can give you some great results.

Overall: Overall, a great website builder for someone who is unsure if they want to start paying for a website just yet, and for someone who is willing to put the time into learning how to customize with Wix. However, if you prefer templates and don't mind paying, other website builders might be more for you.

Pros: By far the best things about Wix is the ease of use, as well as the fact that it is accessible to anyone of any skill level in website development. It's very simplistic for beginners, can be a total "WYSIWYG" product, and is intuitive in the way the development functions work -- things like dragging and dropping to certain parts of the web page work as you would expect them to. There are many templates to choose from, but if you have a better knowledge of web development and are just looking to save time and cut some corners using Wix, you can use Wix's API to customize simple elements very quickly. Similarly, there are different price points available that correspond with what you are looking to get out of your website from Wix.

Cons: The biggest drawback with Wix that I found was that it only supports professional web development up to a certain point. If you are building a smaller, simple site for a client and don't wish to delve too much into creating your own web applications or using the API extensively, it works just fine and can save time. But there is a drop off point where dealing with complex coding within the Wix framework is actually a time waster instead of a boon.

Overall: My most recent experience with Wix was to create a simple website for an event. Because it was something that would only be useful up until the event date, it was a breeze to set up -- there wasn't a lot of need to diverge from the excellent template that I chose to use. I utilized an online RSVP widget, and that was particularly easy and pleasant to deal with, and helped a lot in my organization of the event.

Hands down, it's the best DIY web site designer around.

Pros: Every tool and feature you need to create a professional website can be done simply and quickly with Wix. I actually look forward to working on my website. In fact, I look for ways to use all of the awesome features Wix has to offer because it's so easy. It is priced well within most budgets and, for what you get, is a great value. Just about every month Wix announces new features and more add-ons. It just continues to get better and better. Need a database for your website? It has that. Need a 3rd party e-newsletter that can easily work with Wix? There are at least a dozen to choose from. Need an online store? With Wix you'll be selling stuff in no time at all and it will be easy to keep your inventory up to date. Once you start using Wix you'll wonder why anyone, amateur to professional, would ever use anything else.

Cons: There is very little to complain about. When I find something I wish Wix could do but can't (which isn't often) I'll just keep checking back. Normally within a few weeks the feature I want is there. The developers for Wix are always making improvements to this product.

Overall: Wix can turn anyone into a professional website designer.

Pros: Last year I had a plan to start a website and I went to research if it is possible to create one myself. I was surprised to see there are lot of services out there that offer free website creation. But after checking reviews and ratings, I decided to give it a try to Wix which seemed very easy to start the process with. I have created my website with in 3-4 hours and everything started functioning immediately. I continued that free service for next 6 months and then I realized that I have to pay if I need to customize my URL and to remove their ads. I purchased the plan and now my website looks just like a normal website.

Cons: In the beginning it was very easy to set up as I was not aware of anything. But after getting to know what a website should be look like, I decided to remove the 'wixsite.com' part from my website URL and they told me i have to pay a monthly fee. The price was not at all worth it compared to the features they offer and there is still their banner ad shown at the bottom of my website which is annoying. Getting a domain and then a hosting plan will be best for people who need to see lot of features on their website.

Pros: As a small business owner I try to save money where I can . With Wix, it helped me build a website for my small business the way I wanted the website to be and I did it by myself! The website builder is so simple and easy to use, anyone can design their own website. Wix makes every step of the process so easy from the layout to getting a domain. My favorite thing about Wix is how easy they made it to make a beautiful, unique website of your own.

Cons: There's not really anything I can say that I don't like about Wix. No, it's not free. Yes, it is a little pricey to get a domain but in the long run it is worth it after you create a really smooth, beautiful website.

Overall: I had the opportunity to make my own website the way I wanted it to look/work. It took me a few hours to make a beautiful website for my small business.

Pros: Creating my website/e-commerce store with Wix was quite easy to do. I love that I could just drag and drop photos into a template, and also adding text and link were easy as clicking a few buttons. They have lots of apps to make your site do almost anything you could want it to do. It was easy to set it up to be an online store with shopping cart and inventory tracker. There is a lot of online support so any questions that I had, or when I wanted to learn how to do something was really easy to find and figure out.

Cons: It doesn't sync up with my shipping account, but it isn't a big deal to copy and paste addresses into the shipping site and print. There is also a good chance it will be compatible eventually, they are adding more apps all the time.

Overall: I love using wix for my website and e-commerce store. It allows me to have a great successful online presence without a ton of hassle or up front money. It's super easy and affordable. It made my owning a business dream a reality!

Pros: Overall, this is an awesome software that I used to build my websites. I found it extremely easy to use since I don't know web design on my own. I didn't have a big budget so Wix saved me on that score! I was able to design two beautiful websites for no charge. You can upload your own pictures or choose from theirs. They have a huge selection of themes and fonts and colors, so you can make this uniquely your own.

Cons: Some of the features are hard to find. A few times I had a couple issues publishing pages. I would update changes yet the changes never appeared on my site. I had to keep doing the changes over and over until they finally appeared, which was incredibly frustrating. Figuring out how to draw boxes or separate sections can be quite hard too.

Overall: Two beautiful websites for my businesses

Pros: For my health software company, we host our corporate website on Wix - with Wix we were able to make a professional and visually pleasing website that could provide more information (features, pricing, contact information etc) to website visitors and that was all we needed from the website. For the money, Wix provided everything we needed and was VERY user friendly.

Cons: For my custom leather company, where I needed a real webstore, I chose a different solution because Wix does not have as strong an offering when it comes to ecommerce as some of its competitors. They run a little slow (as in your website will be slow) if you have too much content and you're not paying top dollar (which I can't afford as a small business). They also don't seem to have the reporting features and integrated solutions for ecommerce that are available with other software options. Thats not necessarily a bad thing - Wix works GREAT for my other company.

So you have to consider the solution you're looking for - Wix provides a fantastic and easy to use website building solution for non-programmers (like me), but is perhaps not the best solution for your money for an ecommerce/sales site.

I love ease of use, pricing and interface when compared to the competition.

Pros: Wix exceeded my expectations for creating a site from scratch which suited my business needs. We needed to make it easier for blog contributors to upload their own content with little programming knowledge, and it is easy to give contributors blog access and to control their posting permissions. Design is very flexible, and it is also easy to rewind to previous versions of the site to correct mistakes. I also like that it allows for Google Analytics and Adwords integration. The supplied stock images are great.

Cons: I have been with Wix for a couple of years and have the premium subscription, I love everything Wix has to offer but have found customer service has declined to the point where you mostly have to communicate via email and no live calls.

Overall: Flexible, creative web site design

Pros: It's easy to quickly create a website. You can even purchase your domain through Wix. Used it for about 2 years.

Cons: Although there's a lot of functions with Wix, my website is a little more complex and wix couldn't offer all the features. The cost can really add up. I pay less with WordPress for a more complex website. The first year with Wix was cheaper because of the new customer offers but then the cost went way up.

Overall: I had a bad experience with Wix after switching from their company. I had an old credit card on file but stopped autopay since I no longer needed their services. Somehow, Wix was still able to charge my account with my new card even though that card wasn't on file. My bank IMMEDIATELY flagged it as fraud before I even noticed it happened. I contacted Wix (which is only through email) no one could give an explanation how or why it happened but said it shouldn't have. It was frustrating for me because that cause my bank to freeze my account and cancel my card. I then had to wait for the new card to arrive. That is why I'll never use Wix again. Shady practice.

Pros: I have small online business and I earn extra money from it monthly. When decided to open online website for my online store in order to reach more customers, unfortunately my small income didn't afford website developer's costs. But thanks to Wix I opened my own website with no programming knowledge and with minimum costs. The availability and affordable prices makes Wix more reachable by ordinary people. My most liked feature in Wix is comprehensive analytics tool which provides you detailed information about your product and customer interactions. This is very useful for exploring weak sides of you store or website.

Cons: Trial period is a great opportunity for newbies. But some features are available after monthly or annual subscription. If new users use Wix with full features in a short time they will absolutely choose subscription. But with limited features Wix can lose potential customers.

Pros: At our company we often update our website. Because industry and customer requirements change too quickly and we have to keep up with these developments. But such regular updates require high budget and human resources. In order to avoid from such costs we switced to Wix. Wix allows us to minimize our energy and costs. Now I can easily edit or add needed section in minutes without any programming knowledge. My best like side of Wix is super easy user interface and cheap plans for every type of businesses.

Cons: Availability of Wix to all kind of users including business and individuals makes Wix unique platform for everyone. But in free plan Wix ads appear and it can be a little disturbing. This is not big issue, but your website could seem unprofessional to some visitors.

Overall: I use Wix to add daily updates about our product and services without any remote help. With easy user interface I make such updates very easily and in a short of time.

Pros: Once you have your website up and running, it looks amazing. But the end result is only as good as the attention to detail you use in setting it up. I like the "drag and drop" feature of building the site. I like the AI features. I like the ability to actually use ONLY the features I want on my website.

Cons: The ability to change the HTML settings within specific blocks without having to make all changes permanent OUTSIDE of the "AI" feature. If you do so and then want to switch back, you will lose ALL of your work. I think that is a major drawback and one that needs to be fixed.

Overall: Wix allowed me to build a complete website easily. Once you learn how to use the features and to adapt them to your specific needs - it runs perfect. I have had a couple of compliments on how my website looks - and that always makes me feel good! If I need to change to a more technical aspect of my website, I'm worried Wix will not be able to help me out. That is the one draw back that is constantly in the back of my mind.

Pros: What I like most about Wix is that it does not have to necessarily be used for creating a personal website. It can have many other uses as well. For example, I was able to use Wix to create a layout for our updated organizational page. Since we did not have the tools necessary to create a professional layout, we were able to do so using Wix site builder, which allowed us to see how our updated website would look like.

Cons: What I liked least about this software is that there is extremely limited functionality and users can't really do a lot. Only the preexisting shapes and buttons can be used, and does not allow users to do their own thing if it already does not exist on the Wix website. This can make it a little frustrating to use sometimes, as Wix may not have the elements that you wish to include in your sitre.

Overall: My overall experience with Wix was pretty good. Considering the fact that I did not need to pay any fees or for a subscription in order to build the layout of our site using Wix, I would say that it was definitely great and worth using. I would highly reccomend was it was very beneficial to our organization.

It has built in email marketing and other very powerful tools such as video integration, event registrations, and most recently, you can build your own internal membership site within your website. My clients absolutely love it!

Cons: Customer service!!!! There's no way to call and speak with a real person without leaving a number for a callback on their website. When technical issues arise, you are not able to call and talk to someone. Their first point of referral is always to their website for tech support. There are also a few minor limitations in the platform such as live video streaming.

Also the price is good for the kind of service, from a professional business e-commerce site to an event invitation webpage.

Cons: The only con I would fins is that the I have a hard time to preset the "Theme text" so that I can make my own theme and all the new text boxes have the option to select from the theme text styles, this leads to having to set the font, size and color of every new page or text field.

Overall: I'm able to design and manage multiple web pages for multiple clients and it is all easy and efficient to do so, the clients are happy with the results and the looks of their page.

Pros: Wix is a free and INCREDIBLY easy-to-use website creation kit that puts all the power in your hands with none of the stress. Users can drag and drop different pieces of their webpage from the admin panel, and then load the website to see what it looks like to users. This application can be used to make websites at no cost to you (although there are better features when you upgrade to a paid plan). With free and easy to use technology, Wix has made website design available for anybody!

Cons: With a free plan all websites retain a .wix.com suffix, and feature Wix advertisements. As well, while the feature is incredibly easy to start with, experienced website designers may be frustrated with some of the limitations that the software places on them. As all of these website pieces are just that - pieces - it can be hard to get them to all work cohesively. Dragging and dropping can take some time to get objects in their proper locations, and adding features such as music players can betray one's expectations. It can take some time to get the website up and running the way one might expect, which doesn't end up being too big of an issue because you really only have to design it once.

Overall: After years of using HTML to create mock websites, I decided to create my own website with Wix. I found myself very pleased with the capabilities and how quickly I was able to get a basic website setup. That said, there were some issues with getting everything into the exact location I wanted. At the end of the day, I was able to put the time necessary into creating a website that I was pleased with. For anyone with a relatively small website design knowledge, Wix can bridge the gap and make you look like an expert!

Pros: Being able to create your own website and web design with WIX is made simple and easy and WIX walks you through all the steps to get it done right. With WIX you are able to not only create a functional high quality website but WIX also allows you to create a capture page, landing page, auto response system and product catalog that allows your customers, followers and fans to easily navigate every inch of your design and world. The Prices and good and fair for each package that you have to chose from.

Cons: The things I do not like about WIX is that when creating a website, webstore or blog with WIX is that if you have not already purchased your own domain name from another company you either have to make an additional purchase with WIX for a domain name and it is not included in any packaged price or when you publish your website the WIX name and logo will appear first in the URL bar. Which in turn can turn some people away.

Overall: My overall experience with WIX has been outstanding and has allowed me to create many webpages with my own pictures and designs and create several landing pages as well which has proven to show a high turn over for my online business and shopping.

Pros: I love the ease of use with Wix. With the option to use a base template design, it's easy to create your own personal website in a few minutes. I work most of mine from scratch and then hand it over to my client once they're happy with it. The fact that it's mostly dragging and dropping different widgets, makes it easy for me to train and provide support for my client's who have chosen to build and publish their business sites using Wix.

Cons: I have absolutely nothing negative to say about Wix. As with anything digital, whenever there's updates etc. there's bound to be some bugs here and there, but those eventually get ironed out by the next update.

Overall: Wix also has had the best online tech support I've ever experienced. Their response rate is incredible!

Important it allows to position the page in the search engines through SEO. and just select for mobile makes your page is displayed in mobile perfectly.

Cons: When using the free version, WIX banners will appear inviting you to create pages, which is a bit annoying. On the other hand if your business has an accelerated growth and you need to add certain complex functions this will depend on whether the platform offers them.

Overall: I want to create a website quickly and without complications

- The variety of templates are amazing. They are categorized well and all look very nice. It makes it really easy to find something that I like and jump into customization.

- A very straightforward menu to choose from with a huge variety of options - say you want to add a 'contact us' section, there are quite a few nice examples to start with

- The add-ons are great, things like scheduling and accepting payments are wonderful.

- The Help/FAQ sections available are very helpful.

Cons: - When you add a blog page from the menu, there are great example posts. Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to keep those to reference / edit without them appearing on my site when it's published. There are ways to hide pages, but not things on a page.

- Once you add a custom color you can't remove it. This becomes really confusing when you're testing out similar colors; once you select the one you want you to have to remember it exactly and be able to choose that over the others you tested. I called their customer service about this and was told it was added to the request list, hoping it comes through soon.

Overall: Again, I'm not super-tech and I got my website up in one day. It was painless and I'm happy with the result. Once I had my base built I've been able to easily make edits as needed.

Pros: Over the years I have tried and used multiple web design programs, and Wix is 100% next to none. It is so user-friendly, you need no knowledge of HTML, and just about anyone with even the most basic of computer skills could successfully create and maintain a web page using Wix. Wix is also incredibly affordable, which is super important for small businesses and non-profits. There is so much flexibility with text, pictures, layout, backgrounds, web forms, and anything else you could think of. I absolutely love the feature to preview (and edit!) your page both as it will be seen by clientele on a desktop as well as a mobile device. There is nothing more frustrating than looking at a website on your phone and not being able to read or use it properly. Wix creates a fix for this by allowing you to set up both layouts at once before even publishing/making the site live. Making changes to your site is super easy, and you can make as many changes as frequently as you'd like. I can't say enough good things about it, and there is no other product out there I would recommend for web design!

Cons: There is literally nothing I have found that I have been dissatisfied with about Wix. It is STELLAR.

Pros: It's easy to use for website building beginners, you can make beautiful websites for pretty cheep.

Cons: The customer service is horrible, Sometimes you a snag and they send you to a page with commonly asked questions and if your problem isn't on the list it's very difficult to solve it since there is only one number to call that only tells you to go to the website to the commonly asked questions, so your in this big circle, very frustrating.

Overall: When you upgrade you can get a lot of awesome features in your package and get your site up and running fairly easy and for very cheap oppose to other website builders, I always recommend Wix to people that are not advanced website builders and want something cheap that looks good. So Overall I'm very pleased with Wix and recommend it to friends that want a great looking website for cheap.

Pros: Wix is a great tool for creating a beautiful websites for any purpose. I have a small online business and before Wix I was wondering how can I build a website without any coding knowledge. I also contacted with several freelancers but their price was higher than my budget. But after finding Wix I was amazed. With Wix I built my own website in a short of time with minimum budget. User interface is so easy and user friendly which explains every action step by step. Thanks to Wix I managed to avoid from high costs. With Wix I also managed to use my time more efficiently.

Cons: There are some small insufficiencies. But the main one is searching feature which have less fylters. Customers want to get as much results as possible while searching. In order to get the appropriate result it needs to have many fylters. I am sure developers will add new fylters as soon as possible.

Pros: The custom templates are simply amazing and you can customize them to your needs. The learning curve is quite smooth. And if you are a total dummy or want a simple website up and running in seconds, simply let their AI do it for you.

For those who really want to dive deeper, there is Wix Code. You can do amazing things with it if you know how to code. You can simply pick a template and code your desired functionalities (limited as of now) into it.

Cons: There are some limits to customisation. You cannot create some out of the box website on wix. So it will be hard to stand out of the crowd if that is your thing. The Wix code is a little buggy right now. The same code may or may not work at times.

Another thing I dislike about the software is that they don't allow a lot of Payment options, for eg: Wallets, UPI etc.

Overall: Overall Wix has something for everyone, be it a Novice, Amateur or Professional. It is simple and fun to use. They keep updating new features and plugins on a regular basis. Moreover, Designers no longer need to depend on developers to create a simple website.

Pros: Wix makes it easy to create a stunning site, even if you don't have any formal graphic design or coding knowledge. They have a ton of templates that allow you to build a site in a matter of hours, simply switching out the content for your own photos and verbiage.

Cons: If you're looking at some more advanced SEO tactic, Wix may not be the best platform. They make it difficult to track calls in Google; you'll have to insert your own code snippets on the back end (or hire someone to do that for you). Also, do not recommend hosting your domain on Wix, since they lock you in for long periods of time.

Overall: Overall, my experience with Wix has been very positive. I would not necessarily recommend for a very robust website; if you have the resources to hire an experienced programmer or have a programmer and designer on staff, then you can accomplish more with different CMS's. but for smaller businesses that just need a quick, slick website, Wix is perfect.

Pros: The IT builder will set up the website using your inputs...and it does look good. It takes a little effort to customize it. It takes a little time and effort to experiment with to see how different items will change the layout of your website. But it does look good.

Cons: If you want to add a feature that is not supported with the IT Builder - you must completely change the support system for your website. The ENTIRE website - instead of just the one page you are trying to set up. This can be frustrating, because if you later want to change a different page - the IT builder in not available. That means you must go in and use HTML to make changes. This can result in your entire website shutting down if you make a mistake. They need to allow you to use the IT Builder as a whole and then individually change a single page while keeping the rest of the site supported by the IT Builder.

Pros: It's easy to use, there are ample templates to choose from, there is a solid selection of free stock images, the pricing is reasonable, and the edit interface is intuitive.

Cons: The fact that responsiveness is not built into the templates is problematic and makes this less desirable than Squarespace because it means you have to hand edit the mobile version of the site and that several features don't transfer over well from the templates.

Overall: If you want a website but you don't want to use an open source solution (which will inevitably mean you'd need to rely, at least in part, on someone with dev experience), then Wix is the perfect solution. It's easy to use and you can have a site up and running that same day. A perfect tool for small shops that can't invest in a fully staffed web team.

Pros: Anyone with a very small amount of time and even less coding skills can build a beautiful website with WIX. I love how it keeps everything themed so that the entire site flows! You can upload your own fonts. WIX has a HUGE library of free stock images for your personal use as well and that's a HUGE plus!

Cons: The biggest problem with WIX is that it doesn't integrate well with "out-of-network apps". It also doesn't embed web pages correctly for mobile optimization. I would suggest using WIX if you are starting out, but once you learn more you may want to stretch your legs a bit. Do remember, however, that if/when you migrate your site, you do not own everything you created on WIX.

Overall: Very easy to use regardless of knowledge.

Pros: I like that setting up my website is fairly straight forward. My first line of work is graphic design. I find that I am able to design an aesthetically pleasing site using Wix, which is really important to me. In this way, Wix is very user friendly.

Cons: There are a few issues with the bookings function that I use on my site. For example, if a client books more than one photo shoot at a different location through my site, the address for all photoshoots defaults to the location of the last photoshoot booked. I have not been able to find a solution for this problem yet. I am also working on setting up a blog tied into my website. This has been a little tricky as well.

Overall: Overall, I am satisfied with Wix. But as mentioned above, I do believe there is room for improvement. For now, I have no plans to use a different software. But I do hope to be able to resolve the issues addressed in the cons list above.

Pros: Wix allows users to quickly and easily build a website with little or no previous web design or development experience. The drag and drop functionality for designing pages works well for those who want to see their site while making edits (versus editing in HTML).

Cons: The biggest con of Wix is that only one user can be making site changes at a time. If multiple users are logged in and editing the site, each person's changes will override other users when the page is saved/published. This makes it difficult to work on a team with multiple people, as it's easy to accidentally save over someone else's edits.

Overall: Overall, Wix is a good solution for individuals or small teams who need to quickly and easily build a site that looks good, without needing any web development or design experience. Our team of 3-4 has been using it for years and have been happy with the ease of use (as none of us are very proficient in coding).

Pros: Unlike most other website building tools (Squarespace, etc) Wix comes out of the box with a lot more options for customization. This means that you can more easily build the site of your dreams, without having to conform as closely to prefabricated templates. This is not without its drawbacks (see cons), but in the right hands it becomes a relatively easy tool that allows you to create a relatively powerful end product.

Wix has a range of templates, items, options for coding simple coding, etc that help bring your vision to life, and that stands head and shoulders above the competition in this regard.

Cons: The downside to the increased flexibility is that it becomes easier for things to quickly spiral out of control. What I mean is, with Squarespace, you're locked into somewhat more restrictive templates (for websites as a whole, but also for individual elements - photo galleries, etc). This means that it's harder to 'mess up,' or create something that doesn't work as well. Because Wix comes with more freedom, it also means that it's easier to fall outside of recommended guidelines. If you're really a beginner when it comes to web design and setup, you may quickly find yourself losing a handle on a coherent, functional site. For this reason, I'd say Wix is a step above Squarespace when it comes to required experience or expertise.

The website hosting is secure. Your are able to add your personal logo to your URL. Wix has the ability to start a personal online store which I plan on using soon. Wix also has the ability to make your website mobile friendly. Which is very handy now a days.

Cons: Once in a great while the WIX server is down. The most down time I have experienced is maybe 5-10 minutes. But for the price you pay for hosting and the software is not a huge issue for me.

Overall: Very nice functioning website that looks professionally done.

Pros: I started using Wix two years ago for designing my website when I started my business. In my opinion, Wix is a better alternative to hiring an independent web developer since you'd still get the same quality for a fraction of the price and you don't need any coding or UX Design skills to build your website. The process is extremely easy with the use of their high quality templates...and these are not your cookie cutter templates. All of their template options are organized by categories per industry and are fully customizable! They also offer add on services to help you grow your business in terms of marketing.

Cons: This program is not made for large complex websites. For example, if you wanted to build a site for a vacation rental business or a platform for a Mass Open Online Course website, that would be content heavy with multiple page layers, this would NOT be your go to. If you wanted to make a website for a subscription box company, a spa, blog, or restaurant, this would be totally perfect for that.

You can avail the free unlimited subscription and check all the features of the system, then try the paid plans.

Cons: There is no template change option, if you start designing your site with a particular template, you have to use the same till the end. It is free as they add their ads through out the page and in the domain names as well. There is a monthly fee to go ad free.

Cons: I have no negative observations, I have found that it offers an excellent service in all respects, since when I set out to develop a website for a friend's company, I was able to obtain from this platform all the necessary tools without many complications, I was able to obtain pre-designed templates that were perfectly adapted to the service offered by my friend's company, I could also customize it with the images and content of the services offered, it allowed me to change images, font type and size, load the company logo, put animation to the presentation of the page, it was a quite pleasant and entertaining experience to develop this page and the results obtained were quite satisfactory to be the first web page that believes, all thanks to all the tools that this excellent platform offers, such as Wix.

Pros: I absolutely love the idea of Wix and how it makes web design easy for people that don't know how to code. Despite the fact I've spent the last 9 years running a web and graphic design company in which I speak HTML more than English, and Wix basically removing my barrier to entry, I do love the revolutionary step forward the software has made.

Cons: Luckily for me, Wix LACKS when it comes to functionality and 3rd party apps that can be integrated like Wordpress. You can drag and drop, and build a beautiful website, but if you plan on using advanced marketing tools, pay-per-click marketing and funnel landing pages with clean URL's, or other advanced 3rd party apps designed to make money for your website, go elsewhere. The integration with Wix is weak, expensive, and often does not work. Along with that is that when you need something to work or ask customer support, all they say is "Great idea, we will add that to our list of improvements"...a.k.a. limbo.

Overall: Good for people that don't need advanced web functionality. You want a website for your cat with a couple pictures and a video? Wix is perfect!

Pros: I like that Wix is easy enough for me (a tech layperson) to use, but also has enough complex options for my graphic designer to create a beautiful page for my high-traffic business. It helps me feel like I am still in control of my site and I enjoy checking in and polishing up copy or small elements. I also like that I can make small changes and updates without calling my designer (i.e. being charged!) and wait to send actual large or complicated changes to her when my budget allows for the investment. I've never had any issues which required I call customer support -- been using Wix for 6+ years.

Cons: I honestly can't think of anything I don't like about it. The stock photo selection is great, the widgets are great, and my site is never down.

Overall: I've been able to convert almost all of my files to digital files through a widget that Wix offers. Documents come in securely with an electronic signature and in PDF format. I'm able to upload them seamlessly to my client management software and keep my drawers available for stock and supplies, not archived paperwork.

Pros: We love being able to use this service to design and maintain our church website. It has MANY different features and apps available and offers options to sync things like our Google Calendar so our members can stay current on upcoming events. The platform is simple enough to use that it doesn't require any coding knowledge, and most features are template-based or simple drag-and-drop features, which means we don't have to have a dedicated IT person to maintain and update our website.

Cons: The designers have added transition graphics and other animations that significantly slow the site down and take much longer to do basic edits and updates. Every feature requires extra clicks to edit or change, instead of being able to simply click and highlight text, etc, to change. Not sure why these features were added as they don't seem to add to the service and significantly slow down the process.

Overall: Super simple platform allows us to have a professional-looking website, without having to hire a professional web designer to create and maintain it.

Pros: Making devoted sites to advance property available to be purchased is a center piece of our business. With Wix, making sites for home merchants makes their websites look so great.

Frontend and and backend interfaces and functionalities are look so nice and I like them so much.

Also, Connecting a Wix website to a domain name is easy.

Cons: When you pay for premium to associate your area, it opens a variety of choices for you. So essentially, the free form, as most any program, is a restricted one.

Overall: Their most recent enables you to make paid video courses. On the off chance that you have a course on Udemy or one of the other course stages, setting it up on a Wix site is an elective worth investigating. Wix is my go-to stage for making sites for my business and for customers. When you make a customer site, it's anything but difficult to exchange it to them and remain an administrator of the site.

Pros: Wix makes it easy for anyone to create websites without the need for design knowledge. It helps web designers to acquire new business and satisfy their clients in a fast and professional way. Wix offers telephone service in Spanish, English and Portuguese. Website (Contact Page) where you can find immediate answers and solutions to the most common problems. It has hundreds of high quality design templates that make the work process faster and tedious, it also offers blank templates for those who prefer to do a clean slate and start from the very first draft. It offers numerous customization options that give the designer maximum artistic freedom. A wide variety of applications, images and widgets that enhance the user experience are available at a click away.

Cons: Too much design freedom, which can be overwhelming for some people, due to the number of options and changes that Wix allows you to perform, when you personalize your website.

Overall: Through this system I strengthened my knowledge in the development of web pages. This system allowed me numerous customization options for designs with maximum artistic freedom. high-quality design templates allowed the work process to be faster.

Pros: I'm not a designer and did not want to learn how to become one. I've used other online software that had a learning curve, but a Wix was easy right from the start. They have all the features I need to grow into my business and allowed me to embed 3rd party apps into my website. I love my website and how I could customize it to my liking instead of having to stick to a template.

Cons: The editor is slow at times but it's nothing terrible. Also, support is mainly finding your answer through articles until I found out how to reach support via email. After that, I was able to open tickets and get fast responses. I wish they made it easier to submit a ticket.

Pros: There are a lot of templates to choose from and it is an overall flexible tool and is easy to understand. The FAQ section together with the introductory videos that give instructions are very useful in case you get stuck. The new and inexperienced users can take advantage of the Wix ADI, which gives you less flexibility but it is useful and convenient. The backup functionality is also great in case you want to restore lost data.

Cons: One of the main disadvantages are the ads, free-ad option only comes with the "Combo" plan which is not great user experience for people who cannot afford it. The depth of the navigation only goes down to two levels, it would be great if there is a third level. Another disadvantage is that once you have chosen a template you can't easily change it. Also, the code cannot be removed from Wix, so in reality you don't really own the code, it can be an issue in case you decide to improve your website or add customization.

Overall: Overall Wix is good if you want something fast to test a concept or just have a simple promotional page, but you need to keep in mind that if you decide to have something more complex later on you will have to start from scratch. It also requires less budget than going to an agency getting a new website.

Pros: with wix i have been able to design and maintain my website with ease and plenty of fun, all for no cost. it is very simple to use and has custom settings and themes so your finished product feels more like your own. and while i have been saving up to upgrade my site to the paid version, i often forget that i haven't yet, because of all the features available to me in the free version.

Cons: while i understand why, i'm not too hot about the fact that the website's name is attached to my domain in the free version.

Overall: my website has been up for four years now, and it's functioning as seamlessly as ever. i haven't lost any features, nor has there been any issues with my site.

Pros: I've built several websites, including my own, with Wix and I simply love how easy it is to use - Just drag and drop. They have many available templates to make things even simpler - just modify one you like to match your business. You can also go in as a developer to modify the code to adapt for different functionalities. The websites are already mobile friendly, SSL secured and make SEO tasks extremely simple.

Cons: I've been using it for a while now and I can't really think of anything that I don't like about it. It is feature rich, has many useful tools, a WISYWIG menu for elements, and you don't have to pay for the templates. So no cons as of yet, but I will let you know if I find some.

Overall: I build websites with Wix. It is easy to use, so I can build a full website very quickly and it will look professional.

Pros: I really like the ease of use of the Wix website. I like that it is not difficult to use at all. If you can navigate online, you are able to create your own website, through Wix. The ability to have a way to create a website, and not feel stress, and yet have a professional looking website, is awesome!

Cons: I do not like how the customer service is poor. I am able to navigate through the website and rarely need to call customer service. But, when I did, the representative seems to only know the basics regarding my website inquiry, and I had to figure it out on my own.

Overall: The benefits of Wix is the ease of use and the price point. They are reasonable and pretty good quality.

Pros: Love the fact that it is all drag and drop editing. This takes a lot of the guess work out of building and designing a website. When working with students, unless we are publishing out to the greater audience/world, I'm focusing more on content rather than look and aesthetics. This allows them to create a professional looking website with minimal experience in web design and get right down to what they put on the site. I also like the ability to add various other tools onto the site such as a store, embeddable content, and various other tools.

Cons: I wish the templates could be adjusted more. You are pretty much set to what Wix has designed with the templates. I also find A LOT of ads on free Wix sites. Just takes away from the overall look and feel and also is a nuisance when working with students.

Overall: Overall, this is a great tool for building websites with its overall simple drag and drop design as well as animations and other cool tools/effects. For students, this is usually one of 3 platforms I recommend when they are putting a website together.

Pros: Wix is a very easy to use, customizable web site builder that offers plug and play sites as well as the ability to build your own designs. The may apps that can be customized to use within the Wix Platform is also helpful. The SEO optimization help is very useful and their customer service is good.

Cons: Wix tends to make unnecessary changes (in my opinion) which then tends to mess something up like getting a notification you have a new booking reservation (for me), but then having to go to another page to see the actual data for the reservation. Customer service can be slow in fixing issues, but they normally get fixed.

Cons: I have nothing to dislike about Wix. But I cant wait to see it progressing.

Overall: The free site is awesome for beginners. It provides an online customer experience. It is convenient to customers since it sell Physical goods and services.

Pros: Wix is a unique platform which offers a lot of website building tools for non developers who doesn't have programming language. And it makes Wix available and easily reachable for every kind of people from businesses to individuals. While using Wix I really enjoy giving personalized look to my own website. That is my most liked side of Wix which creates an opportunity for making your own touches while creating a website. Easily drag and drop feature is also very handy and offers a lot of adjustment features while adding any kind of media files.

Cons: Besides building a website, connection with the customers is also important issue. I would like If there was a voice note feature to send welcome greetings to every visitor which will make them feel special.

Pros: While it is awesome because essentially it is free, I have heard from many that there are better platforms that offer more variety and better optimal features to assist with driving traffic, speed optimization and SEO

Cons: Determining what those things are can be a bit difficult for anyone who is not so technical. For instance, running a speed test was easy. Trying to get the site to compress photos or things to improve the site functions was not so easy. Also, don't count on many choices for clipart, stock photos, and other intricate details that provide options. No assistance from customer service is a downside as well.

Overall: I would recommend because of the ease of use but I know many who would recommend otherwise. Now that I am familiar it is difficult to switch to a new platform but I will be switching soon. Thanks anyhow, wix!

Pros: What I like most about Wix is that if you are new and don't have an idea in making a website, Wix can help you. With there system of drag and drop, you can create your website easily. Also, they have a custom made website that you can already use so you don't have to start it all from scratch.

Cons: The least I like about Wix is that sometimes there is a lag when you are fixing the site. Also, sometimes there are limits on what you can do like there's only a certain way you can edit the site.

Overall: Overall my experienced with Wix is great. It helps me start my website, it taught me what are the things I needed in a website and I did it with ease.

Pros: I love the ability to customize our page for our restaurant! Our menu changes daily and is never the same 2 weeks in a row. People order anytime from Friday night until the day of until 2p for dinner Tuesday through Saturday. Wix is the only platform out there that will allow us to create different menus for each day and each week.

Cons: I wish Wix wouldn't time out or take forever to load when typing in descriptions. Also if someone orders for more than one night I wish it would recognize it and add the additional cost for delivery for each night. I also wish that the website on the customer end was more friendly and didn't error out as much.

Overall: We've been with Wix for 2 years now. We have looked at several other platforms, but no one else could accommodate our unique restaurant type.

Pros: To begin, it must be made clear that I am not an expert in web page development. However, my work requires certain management and knowledge of the subject. For that reason and speaking from my experience as a user, I can tell you that Wix is one of the best platforms I've tried.

If your idea is to build a web page for your business without having to invest a lot of time or money, then Wix may be your alternative.

Its simple, in terms of use, is able to allow a person with very little knowledge about the subject or perhaps none, to be able to build a website in about 30 minutes.

Once you have your ideas and you are clear about what you would like to have as a final product to show to the public, the rest is to see how everything comes together and materializes your final goal.

Cons: I do not think it's a negative thing, but the freedom that Wix offers at the time of design could be used inappropriately. However, I think this depends more on the user's vision than on the platform itself. It is a matter of organizing ideas well.

Overall: If you want to start building a website through a platform that lots of templates, freedom to design and without having knowledge about codes and those kinds of things that our engineers know very well, these I think is well worth it try Wix.

Pros: Ease of use, security, development time.

Cons: Maybe difficult to create complex sites, or maybe it has to be well planned.

Overall: Everything is way faster, cheaper and better looking if the webpage is not too complex. Apart from that, security issues in other platforms could be overwhelming but in Wix one can go reassured, full peace of mind. What people does not consider at first is the maintenance cost when using other platforms, Wix is top tech so that way people can create by themselves instead dealing with designers and engineers to make changes later. Wix is up (running) more than 99% of the time so no worries about messing with web hostings late night because of a crash or an attack.

Times evolve and of course web engineers and web designers are worried because using Wix you wont need them. Same with many other crafts.

If your webpage is planned to grow and become complex, you should plan it carefully to know if such a development could be done using Wix. Recently i worked in a news portal that almost grew out of control, but in spite of having lots of people working in it, we still could aggregate may functionalities and still keep it simple using Wix.

Pros: Wix isnt the first web builder, but it sure is my favorite. I think that my favorite parts about wix is A) you can have as many test sites as you want, with no time limit. Sometimes i will make the same website several different times so i can compare designs and features. Other platforms have timelines you can design before you have to launch but not wix. B) They are constantly improving. Between templates, widgets, plugins, and even the logo generator, wix is ON THEIR GAME when it comes to producing fresh new features.

Cons: One of the frustrating features (or lack of) is the depth of navigation. I believe you can only have 2 levels of navigation which makes more complex sites harder to accomplish.

Overall: Overall, this is an amazing tool. It makes the internet accessible to people who have no idea how the internet works. (for better or worse) Its my favorite place to dabble with little fun ideas for new websites and makes it easy to publish and maintain after that.

Pros: This is an easy CMS to pick up and start using right away with many integrations and widgets available for free, and others available for reasonable prices. Exploring the system and mastering different elements doesn't take too long, and though Wix customer support cannot solve all complex problems you run into, you can potentially develop your own solutions with a bit of coding knowledge when Wix falls short, which for many of its target users, is never.

Cons: Many of the features are subscription based, but that's the way of the future with tech billing. Also, it's common for "anyone" to build a website, whether they have design experience or not. Wix could do more than empower people to build they could offer training resources for good design principles if they wanted to really empower everyone to build beautiful website like they advertise. Personal opinion about the brand though. The product services its clients well.

Overall: For beginners, it's like magic. For experts, its benefits are mainly for when you work with people who have no experience and don't have much time to develop to learning website development.

Pros: This is the fastest and easy way to do a website and you can be up in minutes with their platforms and easy to edit templates. Anyone can now do their websites with ease.

Cons: Cannot export website if you are looking to export it to another site. Stuck with Wix offers and third-party companies that they deal with. Stuck with Wix pricing plans regardless if you use their features or not.

Overall: I always recommend it, since it's so simple and easy to use. You can be up in minutes and still have a professional looking website that can cost you a bundle. Wix is the way to go if you want control of your website and keep expenses down.

Pros: The platform is a friendly user. If you need some advice to create your own page, they have a lot of samples that you can use it and adapted for your business. Also you can hire and expert and they do it for you. I love the photos that have available and the variety of apps that you can use to your business, especially the apps that connect the social media. The montly pricing is lest that others platforms wich is a plus. The features that are included in all the montly payments are awesome.

Cons: In overall the software fulfills my expectations in everything. I would say that, no matter that the have great apps for integrated the social media and other features. Wix will need to study others apps that are frequently used for e commerce especially for shipping and integrated in the apps market.

Overall: If you need to create a website quickly, wix is the best option.

Pros: I like overall it's intuitive and simplicity to use. In the beginning they can help you to select the best template for you, it is hard to choose a template, because all are beautiful, and great designed, another good point for wix.

Since when I was young I wanted to create a website, and wix was the first I tried to do that, afterwards I decided to try another webpage builders, but none of them was so intuitive and joyful to use like Wix.

I think Wix is great for those who are visuals, personally, editing HTML is not my thing, because I get lost in the code,

Another good point, is this:

If you want to build a webstore, you don't have to spend weeks on do that, most of entrepreneurs, want to build all from zero perfectly, and this is a huge waste of time and money, why reinvent the wheel again? A secret to success is take something that is already done, and improve it.

Cons: There are a few things to improve:

I'd love to see a desktop and smarphone app to edit the site, because sometimes my internet is slow and hard to edit a webpage.

Good job with Wix, I like almost everything of it.

Overall: My webpage looks very professional now. I edited my website in less of a few hours. And simply I love it.

Wix had helped me in creating unique websites with ease.

Pros: The templates and all the tools had helped us create unique websites with ease, an in my case I don't have much of an experience in creating websites and it was simply great to create one with Wix. Even for the free users, they offer a lot of tools, color options and themes that are custom built. The prices are very much affordable and you will find some five hundred templates in total to start with. The best part about the free version is that, no matter what you are it a fresher, pro, freelancer you would get your requirements satisfied with the website. It suits all types of organizations- be it small or huge firms. You can boost the performance of your website by employing tools for SEO, analytics etc.

Cons: I don't have many negatives to write down here. The only one issue is that, as far as the free version is concerned, I had to always do compression of my images or documents in order to upload them.

Pros: I would describe Wix as useful for creating perfectly fine, usable websites. I was able to create an improved website that checked all our functional boxes with little website building experience (unless too many glitter graphics on a GeoCities page in 1996 counts), and our audience was pleased with the improvement.

Cons: A little clunky navigating the menus, and adding some elements to our website looked a little clunky and not professional. In all fairness, that is because it wasn't done professionally, it was done by me--whether the options weren't available or I just couldn't find them, some of our execution was inelegant. It also lacks the ability to integrate Stripe for payments rather than Paypal.

I can't believe what I can do with WIX!

Pros: I enjoy working in the platform very much, and manage multiple websites using it. I have been a user for about three years, and I am still learning new things, lately I'm working on the blogging features and I am pleasantly surprised by the ease of use and multiple options. I love the stock photos and art that are available for use for free.

Cons: It would be nice to be able to lock down pages of content from another user who has editing privileges ... maybe there's a way to do it, but I haven't found it yet. The time to load a site is a little laggy, but that could be either my ISP or my own computer junk, however, I don't seem to have that issue with other sites.

Overall: With Wix, I provide services to others who don't have the time (or, they say skill, but I bet I could teach them) to create or maintain their websites. I help them have a place in the online world and it allows them to add validity to their business as well as exposure to new opportunities.

Pros: I love how wix keeps me updated on emails. Wix has made website building so easy. The software asks you some questions and then it chooses size and color for you based on your answers. It is free hence available for all category of people. It is best for beginners.

Cons: For the free version, Wix does not display all the comments from clients. It is not possible to change templates after answering the questions. The free version is limited.

Overall: It has a reasonable pricing. It is recommendable to any kind of business since it has online booking tools and online store builder.
