    Wix is a site that can help you make your own website. It is very easy to use and the results are great. It has an artificial intelligence feature that helps you make the site. I give it two thumbs up!!!

    Easy to use but most of the time very slow, to the point that frustrations set in I personally wish I hadn't started with the wix editor. Contacted customer support who basically fobbed me off as they couldn't recreate the issue I was having. I run a new mac book pro with 200mb fiber optic broadband, I called my ISP and they said the issue was with Wix and there loading times not at my ISP's end

    If Wix spent less money on their advertisement and more on actually bettering the website builder, we might actually have something good.This website builder it an absolute nightmare. It wont even understand how to resize an image it just cuts th e sides of it off instead of scaling down in size. I get its far easier to use - but whats the point if your website looks tacky and unprofessional?Disappointed.

    I really loved using Wix. It took my no more than 45 minutes to get a reasonable site live. Of course I came back to it and kept updating it since. I recommended it to two of my freelance friends and took the time to write my opinion here.

    When you subscribe to their Yearly Unlimited Premium plan, their website says that you get 2 free premium apps which are Site Booster and Form Builder.I only used the Site Booster and I was just charged a total of $9.90 for 2 months of service ($ 4.95 monthly service charge).Nowhere in their advertisement says that there will be a monthly charge at all for the service and that is why it says you get it for free with your subscription.This is clearly, false advertisement!As of now I have cancelled my subscription for the Site Booster so I won't get charge again.When I called customer service about this was told that you only get a credit for the first month of service. Again, nowhere that is mentioned.They issued me a credit for this charge.I wished that I haven't paid in full up front as is required for the year for the yearly subscription for their service.As of now is "wasted" money since I can not get a refund for it and is paid until it expires for the yearly service.As of now I am looking for another company to design my website with and won't be using Wix anymore.I also haven't finished designing my website completely yet.

    Be careful, don't use Wix website. Wix is maybe the WORST provider ever seen. Wix team always make false advertising everywhere. Wix website are totally unfunctionals. No answer from support, or stupid answers with no solutions to problems.Very S LOW websites, or if you made a page with very few (2 or 3) elements : They seem being able to give you a very nice and beautiful website but you can't use it when you use apps. It is totally false advertising. Images send to socials are very very little and absolutely not interesting, many bugs and more and more and more....The only answer from Wix team, if we can call them a team, is to clean history and cache. Did you ever said to your clients : "hey buddy, if you want to access our website, clear your cache !!!" RIDICULOUS !!!Don't forget that : with Wix, you have a low price initial webpage, but after ALL is paying. Never use Wix websites, they are dishonest and unscrupulous about their product and services.--------------------------------------N'utilisez jamais de site internet chez Wix, probablement le pire provider qui existe. Wix passe son temps à faire de la publicité mensongère partout, vous faisant croire à de somptueux sites qui en réalité ne fonctionnent jamais et sont très, très lents, à tel point que même vous avez envie de partir de votre propre page. Sauf évidemment si vous ne mettez que deux ou trois apps dessus, auquel cas il ne ressemble à rien.Leur équipe ne résout aucun problème, ne donne aucune solution. La seule réponse est en permanence la même : videz vos caches, redémarrez votre navigateur !Avez vous déjà dit à vos clients : "Si vous souhaitez accéder à notre site, videz donc vos caches Monsieur, enfin, comment faut-il vous le dire ?" On rêve d'entendre ce genre de nullité comme réponse de la part d'un support de provider de nos jours, et jamais aucune autre solution.Les sites Wix sont définitivement à proscrire, n'utilisez Jamais ce provider.C'est une publicité totalement mensongère, et malhonnête. De plus, après une page installée presque gratuitement, chez Wix, tout est payant !!! La nullité, c'est comme le minimalisme artistique, cela coute très cher.Wix : Fuyez ce provider, c'est le seul conseil à donner.

    Wix is changing over to new form (late 2015, early 2016). If you have a site and are a photographer, beware! Wix will change your site retroactively – without waning and without your permission -- to fit is “improved” format, which is a disaster fo r photographers . All of the Wix photo galleries that used to work well are now full of bugs and very problematic. Most notably: (1) If you click on any thumbnail in any gallery, the popup enlargements are ridiculously small -- to small to show any detail in your photos. (2) You can't use captions easily, because any background images or writing on the gallery page shows through the popup photo, interfering both with the caption’s s readability and with your ability to see the showcased photograph. (That is, your photo will be see-through, so that you can read any text behind it, and also see any image behind it -- showing through your picture!). (3) Popup captions have no justification function -- they automatically center-justify, which looks weird and unprofessional, and makes any captions longer than one line difficult to read. (4) You can't frame any photo that pops up from a gallery. In other words, Wix has removed all editsing functions from all photos that pop up from their photo galleries. Under their old system, photos look great on WIx. Under the new one, photographers

    Finally! An easy to use, yet 100% FREE website builder. Of course, every site has to make some money, so they will occasionally as for you to upgrade, but they do not ever force you to upgrade. The free version of Wix is as free as it gets, with only minor ads ("Powered by Wix.Com, Make your Free Site Today") on the bottom and side. THE BEST I HAVE EVER FOUND! If you are looking for a free site, this is for you, and let me guarantee it to you, it doesn't get ANY better than this (unless you learn HTML coding and do it yourself). I checked, and there are no site builders that won't have ads, and Wix has the least ads of them all. I do admit, there are occasional glitches where a save won't work and will give you an error code, but you should save often anyways. Support is very good, fast, and nice. I admit the premium plans are a bit pricey, but I had to rate pricing 10/10 because they have a FREE option. IT DOESN'T GET BETTER THAN WIX.

    I know, I know... How come I gave Wix 10/10, well, you got to try other website builders to see that really they are just better in almost everything.So many templates to chose from, so simple to use. The only thing I didn't really like is their blogging platform that seems like it is stitched into the system, but hey, it is a website builder not a blog builder.

    I really enjoyed wix at first, despite its flaws. Then at one point I lost several hours of work, despite saving multiple times and getting a "work saved" message. Lord Almighty. Then, while trying to edit text, not only did the editor convert the te xt back to its original format, it would no longer let me change its properties, or only let me change half of the text, very strange. I tried closing the editor, signing out, even restarting my computer, but I still cannot edit text on one of my pages.Pretty disappointing, and for the record I have all of my software updated, so no issue there

    Создан сайт Картридж Клаб скупка картриджей http://www.cartridgeclub.net/ , более менее получилось, еще долго вылизывать до идеала, лаги, медленная работа объёмных списков, был баг, из-за которого невозможно было создавать списки более 99 значений. Н езначительный минус, но все таки, это хостинг, который располагается в us, сильно на скорости это не сказывается, но чувствуется. Слабая поддержка на русском языке, так же как представленная информация на ru.wix менее объёмная, чем чем на us. Для начала изучения, обучения, seo и всего этого пойдет.

    DO NOT USE WIX EVER!!!#1 - Google Hates WIX they use HTML5, which is flash and flash means you have no content#2 - I have 469 pages of content and at least 200 thousand words and what does Google Adsense say "You have been rejected because w e could not find any content and only 11 words"#3 - My site is Wildlife Planet at http://www.wildlifeplanet.net. When I searched for Wildlife Planet NOT ONE page appeared on Google in the first 25 pages.#4 - I then searched for wildlifeplanet.net NOT ONE of my 469 pages appeared. Twitter account... yes Facebook... Yes even video, blogs, press releases with my website address came up, but not one of my WIX hosted 469 pages.#5 - It's so bad when I searched for wildlifeplanet.net this site that has ONE BANNER on it wildlife-planet.com came up #3 but not one of my 469 pages in the first 30 pages (about 300 individuals) of search results.#6 I wrote to WIX a dozen times about this and after I wrote to them EXACTLY what I wrote above here is their canned cut and paste response."Your SEO looks great and you do have a lot of content.

    Wix is great for creating a simple site that showcase your work, for blogging or for a small business. Designs are really modern and impressive. There are a lot of features such as picture galleries, sliders and video integration very easily. Wix al lows a lot of creative freedom. But in another hand, I don't recommend Wix e-commerce module, you won’t be able to setup a complete online shop Wix e-commerce module is too much expensive and has limited features to sell goods online.

    I actually decided to rebuild my site, I had previously built the site using Moonfruit , but frustrated by it's Flash limitations and it's poor diplay on mobile devices, I decided to rebuild the site using the HTML5 based WIX. Overall my experience u sing WIXt was incredibly positive. It's bigger and bolder than Moonfruit and in that sense feels far less clunky and much easier to use. I did notice some bugs when embedding videos onto my site but there is excellent support available and with a couple of emails I was able to resolve these problems. The end result is a website that I am very happy with, it's simple to update, looks great and displays well on all devices.

So How Much Does It Cost To Build Your Own Website?

Wix’s prices overall are good.  You get a lot with the free package, although there are a lot of ads to contend with and e-commerce is incredibly limited.

Upgrading from a free to a premium package, however, gives you tons of free goodies (like Google AdWords and Facebook Ad credits), so start free no matter what (even if just for a minute).  If you sign up for their yearly plans you get substantial savings.

Hundreds of Top-Notch Templates in Flash & HTML5

Template Selection Wix range of templates is unparalleled. There are tons of gorgeous templates to choose from in either Flash or HTML5 (in free and paid versions alike). I would give Wix a 10/10 without minor hesitation.

Customization Wix templates are super customizable you’l have more color options here than just about anywhere else, in addition to plenty of other cool add-ons. There are also empty templates that you can build from scratch, in case you are a pro and you want to showcase your skills.

Multimedia  If you are an artist, photographer or graphic designer, or if you enjoy experimenting with visuals, you’ll adore Wix’s range of photo galleries, video players and animation options, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

What’s A Great Website Without Optimization?
Some of Wix’s extra features are truly outstanding, like it’s insane widget selection.

Wix doesn’t have any custom email options though, and their SEO, while decent, could use a bit of an upgrade. However, they still have SEO options that could be the difference between how your site performs against your competitors in search engine results.

 

Wix’s App Market

One Stop Shop For All Your Websites Needs

Wix app marketWix has a huge, brand new app market, offering users the ultimate customization potential. App developers from all around the globe contribute their products to the store, offering paid and free apps, which customers can choose from to enhance their websites.

Users can add endless functionality to their site by conveniently visiting Wix’s app market: Need a store app? Coupons? Live Chat? Surveys? Tumblr feed? Wix’s apps offer all the above to conveniently add to your website!
This exclusive feature is what keeps Wix one step ahead of the competition.

It Doesn't Really Get Any Easier Than That...

Creating a basic webpage is really easy on Wix, and you’ll probably have a lot of fun doing it.  The drag-and-drop interface works exactly as it should, even if a bit slow at times. Altogether, while working with Wix does require a short learning curve, it shouldn’t take long before you feel like a digital pro.

 

All in one place

With Wix’s HTML builder you can easily design your site for desktops and laptops, as well as for any mobile device. The HTML builder unifies all the things you need in one place: A blogging platform, a photo gallery, an online store or whatever else you wish to accomplish – all in one place!

WIX Supports You All The Way!

 

  • Video Tutorials
  • Email Support
  • Forum
  • Support Center
  • SEO Help
  • Blog
  • Phone Support
  • Live Chat

Wix’s support is excellent. Extensive, coherent, prompt, easily accessible and (wait for it…) super helpful. Even while working on the builder, Wix offers you an explanation at just about every step.  And the blog is a must for anyone, Wix user or not, when it comes to news and tips in the Internet world. The only reason they got 9.8 is that they don’t have the option for phone support or live chat, but honestly, you probably wouldn’t need it anyway.
