How do we work out the overall scoring and star rating? This is a combination of the in-depth
analysis rating and the user reviews. But it's more than just an average of all the reviews.
We take into account many factors, like the age and number of user reviews.

Wix is a popular web hosting service that has been around since 2006. It has an emphasis on creating an easy website-building experience. Because of that, it strips away many of the cPanel features that you may find with other website hosts. For millions of users, this isn’t a problem.
It provides 99.9% uptime, a free SSL certificate, a custom domain for a year, unlimited bandwidth on many plans, and a powerful website builder. The customer support team is available 24/7 and is knowledgeable about the platform so you’ll always have help if you need it. It does limit your ability to control your hosting but the trade-off is worth it because of the easy experience and range of features.
