WiX.com Reviews

about WiX.com · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

[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.

Makes really Sloppy Unoptimized websites

I run wappylzer and builtwith plugins on chrome to analyze what websites run which platform

Can't remember any time at all that I've ever seen a good looking optimized wix platform

Wix also produces some of the most atrocious looking HTML/CSS I've ever seen as well

WYISWYG (what you see is what you get) looks good at face value... not so much elsewhere

No backup!

The main problem is that it is not possible to create backup of your site, if you use HTML5 sites.

It is a great site builder

about WiX.com and Weebly · · Helpful Not helpful

The interface is slick and user friendly, you can intuitively find your way through.
There is also an online forum that I quickly found answers to my questions.
There are beautiful templates for every type of web site that you can pick and start from that.

The only [trivial] issue I have encountered so far is too many pages open up when trying to edit or create a new page; having said that I am really impressed with Wix in overal.
