When users publish on a Wix site they should take comfort knowing that their content is stored on Wix’s secure servers located around the world, meaning Wix sites load faster for everyone, no matter where they’re located.
Wix was founded in 2006 and has steadily grown every year since. The company now serves over 110 million customers worldwide and has an average of 45,000 new sign-ups every day. Wix’s business model helps customers quickly and easily produce a functioning website so they can reach customers.
After creating a website on Wix, users have access to free website hosting with 500MB of cloud storage and 500MB of bandwidth.
With a Premium Plan from Wix, users can get up to 20GB of cloud storage and unlimited bandwidth. More storage means users can store more images, videos, music, and files. While unlimited bandwidth makes it easy for site visitors to stream and download the site's content.

Communication between a Wix users browser and the Wix server is secured via Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTPS) and Transport Layer Security (TLS). Every Wix site is secured using a SSL Certificate, which protects users and their site visitors’ data.
Wix states the benefits of using HTTPS:
Customers with questions have several options to get in touch with the Wix Support Team.
Wix is free, as long as users are okay with having, wix.com, in their URL. For most people, this isn’t a problem, but users wanting Wix for professional use might want to use a personalized domain name. Wix does have the option for users to choose their own domain name, but that requires a Combo, Unlimited, Pro, e-Commerce/Business or VIP Plan.
Once a user selects a template and publishes a site, it is not possible to go back and apply a different template. Also, users can’t combine two different Wix templates in one site. Users can only work with one template at a time, so it is important for users to select a template they are happy with.

Great! So easy to build a site with a very simple and intuitive site editing tools. Social integration is easy, setting up payments is easy. They do a great job and the price is reasonable.
I think Wix is the easiest way to create your own website. You don't need to have any coding knowledge and they have lots of great templates.
I needed a new website for my business so my assistant used this site to create a great one! It has brought lots of customers and it was easy to design the way I wanted it. It's also very affordable.
Wix has been a great web hosting resource since I created my website. I have never had any issues with them and they have always been very helpful in answering any questions that I have had. If you are looking to move your website to a new host you should look into Wix, you won't be disappointed.
Wix is a good web creation and hosting platform. It is quite easy to use and they have a good assortment of modules to choose from. The only downside is that the good add-ons cost money, which can add up quickly.
Makes making your own website easy. One of the best website making companies I know.
I have used Wix for web hosting on 2 separate websites. Their services are great and I haven't ever had an outage or slow response times. I love their services and the price only makes it that much better. Next time you need any web hosting services give Wix a shot, you won't be disappointed.
I love all the available templates that make setting up a website easy for people like me.
Wix is the easiest site to use for creating your own website. It's simple and the layouts they give you are customizable and easy. You don't need to know much about html to use it.
I have created many websites and the Wix product just keeps getting better and better. I love the ease of creating my sites. So user friendly! I have been asked time and again by other companies why I stick with Wix and my answer is always the same. I just love them! They are so easy to use and it's easy to be creative and turn out a great product!
Ever since the internet has come out, we have all wanted to have our own website. I created mine with Wix, simple layout customization's, high level customer service. Its time to legitimize your business.
Wix is only good if you have no idea how to create a website and it is your only option. If you have any knowledge of website building I would highly recommend using a different software, like Wordpress. Other platforms allow for much more customization and easier editing. Wix is drag and drop and cancelling your plan is a pain. I would never go back to them.
I have used them for years with several websites. It is very easy to set up a site with the ever-improving set of tools. Since they are wywiwyg (what you see is what you get), I don't have to go deep into the code and make the changes there. They are a little slow to respond to support questions, though.
I am not a computer whiz but I was able to learn how to blog with Wix. Uploading new posts and graphics is easy. Editing previous posts is equally easy. If I can do it, anyone can!
I used Wix in college to make websites for my college classes and it made it incredible simple to make some really good looking website. It saved my so much time in my projects.
Wix was free and super easy to use. I used it to build a website to showcase the projects that I have been working on as college student. Would definitely recommend.
