? Note: In the previous tables, we compared Wix to two similar alternatives. But there’s also WordPress.org – the content management system – for those of you who want to be entirely in charge of how your site works and performs. See the differences in this post.

Wix review: CONCLUSION

This is what you should expect from the Wix website builder. We hope that our Wix review helped you learn new things about what Wix is and how it works.

If you ask me, Wix is a great solution when you want to build a cool website fast and do not mind leaving the maintenance matters to the Wix team. If you must have full control over how you administrate your site’s back-end and content, you will probably not feel fully comfortable using this platform.

With Wix, you mostly manage your website’s looks and functionality, but you won’t be at the core of things – you won’t have access to things like doing security checks, handling updates, integrating with external tools, working on site performance, etc.

The Wix team takes care of security and updates for you, which might be a huge advantage if you find this task to be an extra concern or factor of stress. But if you want to own your site completely, you probably need to look into another builder or content management system.
