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.

Pros

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.

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.

Some websites that offer the same do have templates, but this one offers many to choose from. I like the drag and drop feature with a ton of nice fonts to pick from. One thing I especially like is having the ability to promote my website through their service. Overall, I highly recommend Wix!

Cons

It takes a bit getting used to, but once you do - creating your website or store is really easy.

Pros

Wix was soooo easy to use. I was able to use my already reserved site address from go-daddy to set up my website and it was great and comes with a number of templates.

Cons

More templates added would be great for users who do not know how to code or customize their site in a more detailed way.

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.

Pretty good. I really tend to use more robust CMS's, but it's okay. You get what you pay for.

Pros

Wix isn't hard at all to use. In fact, you can get a website up and running (assuming you know the content you want to write on each page) in about an hour if you're hoofing it.

Cons

It's simply not geared to be able to do very granular changes in the theme, UX/UI of the site or other visually-differing aspects of how the site is viewed online.

its easy and good to use. even for someone who has never built a website before

Pros

wix is the best to use if you have no idea in building websites. you can build your website in about 1 hour. it does not require coding or programming skills. you only do a drag and drop to get what you want. its an amazing platform

Cons

it has a little bit of limitations when it comes to ecommerce functionalities. there are few extensions or plugins to enable you achieve some functionalities. if you are looking for some advanced ecommerce or website functionalities, wix is not the place to go with
