Wix Software


 

Wix is a cloud-based landing page solution that helps users create and manage websites. The solution provides multiple templates with video backgrounds, fonts and animation. It allows users to customize the website with their own logo and branding.

With the system, users can display images, videos and text in a gallery layout and add zoom-in or fade-in scrolling effects. Wix offers an Artificial Design Intelligence (ADI) module that creates personalized websites for users with text and images. The Wix code module offers serverless coding that allows users to set up their own database collections, build content websites and add custom forms.

Wix allows users to set up an e-commerce portal where users can display products, manage orders and payments. Pricing is per month and is based on bandwidth and storage provided. Support is provided via a knowledge base and an online forum.

Wix has a clean and simple interface with drag and drop design options making website building a reality for anyone! With simple templates and pre-made add-ons, your website can look custom and professional in no time.

Cons

Wix is not the cheapest option on the market for website hosting. However, time is money and the simplicity that wix offers is second to none.

Pros

A fairly nice website can be deployed from their templates in minutes, as long as you don't mind the outdated look. Pricing is incredibly affordable. Site reliability is (at this time) good. And the setup / configuration options are significantly greater than what most beginners will need.

Cons

Security. I have had numerous dozens of scam / phishing sites come through as email links that resulted in me having to block the entire wix.com domain from our corporate network. Wix needs to do a better job of policing what is hosted.

Wix is the easiest and most convenient way to build your website if you are not a programmer. It helped me creating my own website when I started my business. It has a free plan if you use Wix subdomain. Affordable pricing options, site configuration and on boarding is simple and fairly intuitive. It got design templates which makes your work more easy and they adapt to any device. Good customer support.

Cons

I don't have much dislikes for Wix. Free version is limited.

Wix helps get the work done with ease

Pros

It has a simple drag and drop feature making it easy for even a rookie to build a website in minutes.
It has a pretty simple and interesting layout suitable for small businesses to larger corporations that wish to have an online presence.

It has an optimized and responsive view for mobile devices and tablets.
Wix can be likened to having series of tools you can conjure together to produce a structure . I'll recommend Wix to anyone looking to have an online presence without coding knowledge.

Cons

Although Wix is popular and can get website jobs done, it however isn't as comprehensive as Wordpress or Joomla who have larger support communities and loads of plugins to extend site functionalities.

Wix is most certainly easier than creating a website from scratch. It gives you many options to create your website, and despite giving you a template, doesn't hamper your creativity. I think it's a pretty affordable option as well, and overall I'm very happy with the results. I think Wix is perfect for small businesses with less complex website needs less traffic. I was able to design my website to my liking in about 3 days, and had it up and running within a week--a very quick process.

Pros

I love how Wix allows you to weave in and out of customization vs. templates. You can seamlessly transition from adding new elements on your page to working with Wix's suggestions. As someone who isn't code-savvy, I like the ability to have some structure behind my creativity. I also really like how Wix allows you to create a separate mobile version of your website.

Cons

I don't believe that Wix allows you to look at the HTML code for your website. I wanted to show my website to a coding friend, but we could not figure out if it was feasible to look at the code. If it is, I wish it was easier to do so.

A brilliant site creator that is a pleasure for sight. Easy to use and really flexible. The best choice for photographers, bands, artists and any type of portfolio.

Pros

A comprehensive App Market to integrate excellent image galleries, videos (YouTube), Facebook, etc.
The editor supports 16 languages ​​so you can easily create a multilingual site

Cons

The depth of navigation can be a maximum of two levels is possible. It would not be bad to have a third party.

I’ve used Wix for personal, educational, and professional purposes and it has performed as desired every time. I once had to create a website in under an hour for an important professional deadline and Wix was my go-to choice and got the job done. I will always recommend this software as the easiest and most effectient way to build a website.

Pros

Wix is so easy to use. It’s so usable that I’m convinced any person can learn it and quickly.

Cons

There are some customization limitations and the free version just isn’t a realistic option for a professional purpose, so you have to be prepared to pay a fee for this software to really pay off.

Pros

The site was easy to set up and looked good but it had too much of the WIX branding making me feel like the site wasn't as professional. Chose to bite the bullet and go full domain on our own.

Cons

Didn't like the branding, makes it painfully obvious that it is a Wix site and that makes it difficult to have a professional page.

I have been working on designing a new website for a new site we just opened, it was easy to navigate and the site is looking great. I cannot wait to purchase a domain and see it up and running.

Pros

It is so easy to use and there are many features I loved. If I didn't know how to do certain things the help section was very specific with directions. It was very easy to navigate.

Cons

There was not really much I didn't, I am sure the features I wanted would have cost money and that is why I am not unsatisfied. If I paid for some of the add on's that I wanted I would have been completely satisfied.

Wix is great. It could use some more customization options, but it gets the job done and makes it look pretty too.

Pros

Wix is easy to use. It lets you create your website any way you'd like—whether it's through templates, your own coding abilities, or a blank slate. From there, you can change the aesthetic, feel, and purpose of your site. It's easy to follow and the tutorial AI doesn't get in the way when you're done. I'm no webpage expert, but I'm proud of the portfolio I created with Wix.

Cons

I'd like to have the option to move text boxes around as I see fit, as opposed to limiting them to the center or sides of the page.

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

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.

I have made several pages on wix and have found it to be quite easy to use and edit.

Pros

I like the fact that I am able to choose from several templates in order to create a web page that best suits my needs. I also like knowing that users can load my page quickly and I don't have to worry about the website crashing due to their great security measures.

Cons

I wish that they would allow for more file storage. Also, even though it is extremely easy to customize my page, I wish that the price per month would be more competitive.
