A bit of history


The main Wix offices are located in Tel Aviv, New York, San Francisco and Dnepropetrovsk where talented designers and programmers work on the improvement of the platform. They have founded Wix in 2006 and the program became popular very fast due to very beautiful and original templates and true drag and drop editor.

Undeniable advantages

Probably one of the most significant benefits you can gain with Wix is its simplicity and user-friendly interface. You can easily create a website with WYSIWYG editor.


  • The designers of this platform have created over 550 HTML5-based templates that are SEO friendly and compatible with Apple mobile devices.
  • The designs, which are among the best in the niche, are conveniently subdivided into several industry categories to simplify users’ choice.
  • There is a blank theme you may pick to start a website from scratch, if you cannot find a suitable template in the collection for some reason.
  • These templates allow you to insert texts and images while having the main layouts of the page structured. The templates attract users with its intensity and professional look.
  • It should be noted that the website builder supports 9 languages and allows creating multilingual websites.
  • One more positive aspect about Wix is that it offers a free and secure hosting that you get even with a free version.

Furthermore, Wix provides app markets with a great number of popular applications such as Live Chat, Tumblr, Google Maps, Bookfresh, Social Calendars etc. The website builder also offers an advanced Wix ADI (Artificial Design Intelligence) tool, which lets you create a website in a couple of steps and with no programming skills needed. The detailed step-by-step system will guide you through the web design process, focusing on the must-have aspects. Just answer a set of business-related questions and watch the way the system generated a project for you.


The main thing you should be aware with Wix is that the website builder doesn’t allow switching between the templates because of the absolute positioning editing model it uses. Thus, you should decide on the best option right from the start not to lose the submitted content.

One more disadvantage is that advertisement-free option is available only from the premium plan “Combo”

You also need to remember that due to heavy websites you build with Wix some older browsers (for example Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8) cannot display the dynamic websites.
