Really good if you want to make a simple website! If you wan't to make more complicated one than I recommend Wordpress, and a VPS host.

Challenge: • Wix have WEAK ethic. According to both Matt Mullenweg and Matt Jacobs, Wix stole code from an open source community. This means that Wix violated the software license. Which is an abusive behavior. Thus Wix have weak ethic. Sources: • https://arstechnica.co.uk/information-technology/2016/11/wix-stealing-gpl-code-wordpress/ ______• http://archive.fo/hm6urhttps://ma.tt/2016/10/wix-and-the-gpl/ ______• http://archive.fo/fqggG • Wix is own by a for-profit corporation. It is not owned by a not-for-profit community. Usually a corporation first priority is to hoard money. Not serve you and protect your privacy.

Strength: • Easy to use

Suggestion: • I do NOT trust Wix. Unfortunately some people choose to use Wix for their e-commerce services. Maybe they did not know about Wix's weak ethic. So I occasionally and TEMPORARILY allow access to Wix domain names. After I am done I block any domains name related to Wix. • If you need software from a company with stronger ethic, I suggest to try any other software. Such as Drupal Commerce, WooCommerce (commerce on WordPress), Shopify, or any other software to your liking.

Notes: • Wix domain name is owned by the for profit corporation "Wix.com, Inc." Source at https://gwhois.org/parastorage.com+dns

• Wix is an Israeli cloud-based web development platform that was first developed and popularized by the Israeli company also called Wix. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wix.com

It is simple to use, but the site loads slowly, the support line is not good at all. I recommend using Godaddy.

Not for Medium-Large businesses, or anyone. Their sites are over a second slower than Squarespace and Shopify. Bad Amazon/Ebay integrations. Requires hijacking your naked domain for no reason. Poor scaling on small laptops. Terrible performance on slow laptops/phones.

[NDAS is not a competitor in the hosting / auto-site industry as are other reviewers herein.]

We found the system highly problematic and tech support lacking in knowledge of web code. In addition, any solution offered (usually avoiding code topics) involved compromising the user's own privacy / security, often without achieving a successful solution. Too much suspicious interest in the type of browser used, which is also a sign of (1) lack of knowledge and or (2) a wish to compromise / track / collect user information.

Tech support also showed signs of being overburden (?) as response to initial queries took hours. Acceptable BUT when given extensive specifics about a problem to speed up the process... the wait time increased x5 or more.
