Wix is one of them!

What is Wix?

Wix is an online platform where you can create your own website for free and very easily. However, you need to take into account that the Premium option provides you with more advanced features such as acquiring your own domain name or priority support.

It was founded in 2006 thanks to the ideas of three entrepreneurs (Avishai Abrahami, Nadav Abrahami and Giora Kaplan), who wanted the experience of creating a website to stop being difficult, frustrating and costly. This idea led them to create this platform for those who wanted to create their own website without having technical design knowledge for free, so it was designed for all kinds of people, from restaurants to online shops, musicians, photographers and, why not, also students.

Its characteristics

Disadvantages

– The great freedom of design and changes that it offers could be overwhelming for some people.

– You must be sure of the template choice, as once you design your website, if you wish to change the template design you will lose all the loaded content. For these reasons, we recommend that you are sure of the design that adapts to your business’s needs.

– The free Wix package contains advertisements, although this is common among many other web creators.

– It has limited E-commerce options, although the platform is now constantly updating including advanced options for your online shops.

 

Undoubtedly, when creating an interactive website, Wix is the king. It is ideal for users who are looking for a stunning-looking website which encourages visitors to interact.
