    CMS like WordPress is what called webbuilder in the past. It is more flexible than Wix and other web-service webbuilders both in feature and hosting requirements (we are not locked to one provider) and in development procedure (we can do dev-test-production staging).

    Wordress in 2K19 is so great app to use! Now they have Gutenberg version and drag-and-drop module. These features make WP easy for non-web-developers, but ordinary people, who just want to create their own webpresence. So I can say that WP now is really a good alternative to WIX. Plus WP is free.
