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.

Great platform to host your dream site

I liked the simplicity of using Wix. It has me covered for all my hosting and website building needs.

Pros

Can create fully functional and aesthetically pleasing site with little to no technical background in the arts or web developing.

So far, only pros for me!

Pretty happy so far

Thanks to Wix, I had my site up and running in less than a week. It was easy to upload our content and to transfer our domain name.

Pros

Already selling online with the site. It's a smooth process.

Cons

Personally I had issues linking my website to my facebook...hopefully the integration between social media and websites becomes more streamlined

Powerful Interface

I love that for the first year my domain name is free. This in addition to all the other free features is a huge help when starting a business from scratch.

Pros

Super quick set up and initial process to get your site live.

Cons

Wish there were more options for uploading photos and the designs of those and they're displayed.
