Wix is a great resource for business owners or new webmasters looking to foray into the intimidating domain of free website hosting and creation. They offer 100% completely free hosting with a twist. Wix has an amazing web site creating wizard that allows almost anyone to create a website by using their drag and drop interface. It’s as simple as picking a theme, adding your content, and publishing it to the web.
The step-by-step website hosting site creation panel offers users the ability to setup a site in a matter of minutes. They have a great selection of templates and themes to choose from including features that are usually reserved for website hosting professionals. Because of this feature alone many small business owners are switching to Wix to provide the web identity for their business.
The other great benefit to the Wix approach is the rock-solid free website hosting they offer. With virtually 0 downtime and incredibly fast (due to pre-optimized content) page loading speeds your visitors will never be left waiting to view your website. They offer a great selection of tools that help you reach your potential visitors much easier by helping search engines find and rank your website. Studies show that majority of website users find the information they are looking for by searching for the services on the internet.
Technical support is an invaluable resource when conducting business with a web hosting company because downtime and errors can quickly tarnish your reputation. As a visitor to your website errors and inaccessibility can cause doubt and worry. In our experiences with Wix they demonstrated above average technical help. With response times typically less than one hour we had any concerns and questions answered extremely promptly. When a website host provides that high level of commitment to its customers it builds a great trust relationship. Typically this level of support is only seen in expensive paid website hosting providers. The staff that work at Wix were extremely professional, prompt, and knowledgeable. All extremely valuable resources to have in the people in charge of one of your most valuable resources.
As one of the best free website hosting sites we’ve used we give it a 5 star rating for its simplicity and user interface as well as the advanced features that help business owners get noticed.
