Self-Hosted Alternatives

WiX allows anyone to develop flash websites for fun, business, or hobby. It supports constructing a website from pre-built content, importing custom content, or a mixture of both.

Though WiX touts its ease of use, it isn't always the most flexible or intricate when it comes to incorporating more customized content into its framework.

The freemium service touts that no downloads or programming is needed, utilizing a drag-and-drop building interface and thousands of templates. If you’re in the market for website building, why not try WiX and other free site building alternatives?

Alternatives to for Self-hosting with any license

  • WordPress

    WordPress is software designed for everyone, emphasizing accessibility, performance, security, and ease of use. We believe great software should work with minimum set up, so you can focus on sharing your story, product, or services freely. The basic WordPress software is simple and predictable so you can easily get started. It also offers powerful features for growth and success. We believe in democratizing publishing and the freedoms that come with open source.

    • 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. valeradart5Apr 2019 • 1 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It is close to impossible to create a wordpress site that covers all your needs without paying and coding. Guest • Apr 2019 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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). Guest • May 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • Wordpress does not let you: Change Font (In Free Version) , Edit easily and much more! Guest • Dec 2016 • 6 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Wordpress is a CMS (content edition), not a website builder like Wix (visual editor) Guest • Nov 2015 • 16 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
