Good platform for web hosting

I find them very good platform to purchase web hosting services. I will surely recommend them with some other good options like Hostinger, Godaddy and Domainracer to make a best choice.

Wix is like every other product in the world. You get what you pay for. If you spend less, you get less. Plain and simple.

Very bad service

Staff trained wrongly, they say lies, cheating on you constantly. I cannot get rid of this company now, they keep on attacking you with offers and don’t let go easy, putting additional charges, very annoying people, my nightmare!
Won't act on spamreports

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 th... More at you 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.

Winner: Wix Hosting

Idan Cohen Marketing Expert

While Wix is best known for their powerful, yet easy to use, website creation tools, they also offer very good quality hosting solutions. When compared to 1&1, which is a company best known for having inexpensive hosting solutions, the Wix options are quite a bit more stable and better for most types of websites. What really helps to set Wix apart, however, is that is their commitment to exceptional customer service. Since their target audience typically won’t have a lot of experience troubleshooting issues. In this comparison, it is really quite easy to choose Wix as the winner.
