I got to create my website by myself. It took me sometime but the support was very helpful. I had trouble interfacing it with facebook though.

Stay away from this company. Not trustworthy. Hosting your website there may also hurt your image, as they will no take action against spamming sites they host. If you report a spam website hosted by Wix, they will suggest that yo...Read Moreu UNSUBSCRIBE from that website. Which actually NOTIFIES the spammer about your email having unsubscribed. Which is something that pretty much everyone knows should NOT be done when dealing with spam.

When you point this out to their support, they will stop responding to you. Don't host your legit website there if you care for your reputation.

Tried attach my domain without any success. Wix wants you to buy their hosting domain and if you don't it makes sure that you don't go online. Everytime you contact customer support, they refer you to change DNS server, name all for NOTHING!! BUYER BEWARE!!!

Problematic sales mechanics

I'm using Wix on a daily bases for my 2CENTS UX Design & Strategy site and blog ( https://2cents.co.il ), and I must admit that although the interface is great, and the themes are awesome, there's something disturbing in their...Read More sales mechanics (pushing you again and again to upgrade, even though I'm already a paying customer), as well as their offering within the free tools.
It seems like they did the minimum on each feature, just to check each box, and not invest into upgrading and offer a really exciting and rich modules, while promoting 3rd parties to develop premium features, e.g. the gallery module.
I've monitored it for the past 2 years, and nothing changed there (no new capabilities or designs...) It comes with a lame design, very minimal, and if you need something that looks better, you need to pay for a premium feature...

Expert Overview

Website Building Company with Hosting Too

Wix is best known for their easy to use, yet very powerful website building tools.  They have hundreds of great website templates, and can get even the most technically challenged individual set up with a nice looking website quickly and easily.  In addition, they will host your websites for an extra charge.

Overall their web hosting is quite nice.  Since they are primarily focused on entry level web masters, they do lack some of the more robust hosting features, and are limited to shared hosting services, which may introduce some limitations.

If you are looking for a powerful hosting solution for a huge site, this may not be right for you. For the vast majority of entry level websites, however, this is a very viable option.  The hosting solutions they provide are just about as easy to work with as their site creator, which makes this a very popular service.

Uptime & Reliability

High quality hosting (even for free)

Wix offers a 99.9% uptime guarantee for all their hosting packages.  What is interesting is that you’ll even get this type of uptime on their free hosting package.  If you’re going for a free hosting, this really is a great deal.

When you get to the paid hosting options, you will get a robust and reliable web hosting service that will keep your great looking site up with almost no interruption.

Features

Famous for Site Building, but also offers Web Hosting

When you visit the Wix website you know that their biggest feature is their website building services.  You can create a free website using any of their great templates and have it up and running quickly and easily.  As far as simple website builders, there really isn’t anything available today that can compete. For some people, this alone is enough to attract them to the Wix platform.

When focusing strictly on their web hosting services, it isn’t quite as easy of a choice.  There is really nothing wrong with the features they provide.  The problem is just that they don’t really excel in any one area (for hosting).  They have several different shared hosting options based on your specific needs, and they make it quite easy to choose which one you want and set it up.  They also have a lot of servers that have SSD drives, which is a very nice feature.

Overall, their hosting is very respectable, but their biggest feature is clearly their web creation tools.

Support

Very Friendly and Able to Help

This is an area where Wix is really providing a high level of service.  They are targeting their business toward entry level webmasters so their technical support is able to walk you through things and help in areas that many other support teams might not be willing to do.

In addition, they still provide some high end support services to their customers in the event the site goes down.  They have 24/7 customer support for all their services.  They also provide some support for their web design tools, which is an excellent perk.

Pros:

  • Top of the line website creation tools
  • Best free hosting available
  • Excellent support, especially for beginners

Cons:

  • Hosting prices are above average
  • Lacking advanced features
  • Limited to shared hosting

Pricing

Slightly Expensive Just for Hosting

The shared hosting prices are above the industry standard, and if you ignore the website creation tools, you really aren’t getting anything great for the higher price.  Of course, you can’t just ignore the website creation tools.

For anyone who wants to use their incredibly powerful website creation tools, the slightly higher than average price will still sound like an exceptional deal.   One other thing to keep in mind is that for their lowest price hosting, they will still display their own ads on your site.

One important point to make, however, is that you can also get free hosting (with ads) if you want.  For simple sites, the free package is an excellent option to consider, at least when just getting started.

Summary

A great service for entry level websites

The bottom line for Wix is that they are one of the best options available today for entry level websites.  If you aren’t interested in many of the advanced services that are being offered, and especially if you want help making a great website, this is the perfect choice for you.  If you are in need of something more advanced that may be able to grow to a massively popular page, you may want to look other places.
