WordPress VS Wix: Street-fight
Both CMS are functional for beginners because of their simplicity and accessibility, as well as their ease of customization.

However, if the objective is to show itself as a professional brand: well.. the fruit is not always sweet… due to in that case is essential to have your own domain. WordPress, on the other hand, does not enable the domain although the acquisition process only takes a few minutes. Also, is free download it.
With Wix you can choose between different templates and with an editor, you are able to modify text, images, colors and so on to end up publishing the Website: As far as apps are concerned, it only has 288 and no adjustments are possible.
It e-commerce is fine for simple products, but unfortunately, beyond short text fields, you cannot customize the information. Moreover, this feature is only available on paid plans that cost more than a regular Wix site. Regarding data security, all the content is exclusively hosted on its servers and cannot be transferred anywhere else.
When installing WordPress, the number of themes obscenely overtake Wix’s, while if you’re feeling adventurous like Indiana Jones, it’s possible to create everything from zero with Widgets. It has over 53000 plugins adding or adjusting functionalities, plus those that are paid. And maybe if you have a developer friend, to whom you have paid several beers in the past, and now he wants to lend you a hand, he can absolutely modify the code.
With WordPress, you always have full control of everything, having security and backup plugins. Regarding e-Commerce, it has a huge portfolio of add-ons that expand the online store displaying products.
If you just want a simple way to create a Website and don’t worry about Security data or the versatility to customize a site, then Wix is probably a good choice. Just remember – if you decide in the future you would like more updates, there is no migration available. So why not think ahead?
