You can pick a template and build your website on a pre-made foundation. To comprehend this, think of Wix as a constructed building like a house. The house's structure is already established. All that remains is for you to paint the wall and put furniture. Similarly, Wix will offer you a framework or structure. You can select the theme and add any feature; this may be photo galleries and other apps. In addition, Wix templates are automatically mobile-optimized that look great on smaller screens.

The combination of Wix's wide range of templates and the app market gives you endless possibilities.
Wix offers over 800 templates with exceptional design (and constantly updating). They provide pre-built layouts for many topics and industries. In addition, you can add extra functionalities to your website using the Wix app market, things like newsletter tool, live chat, online booking, and much more. These can all be incorporated into your website.
Wix is the only platform we suggest for small businesses and websites, such as restaurants, consulting services, booking, events, CV and portfolios.
Wix has a 100 static page limit. You can use dynamic pages to populate more than 100 pages, but that still doesn't make sense when you can't migrate to another platform. So avoid Wix if you have a content-heavy website in mind such as Cnet or PCmag.
For content heavy blogs and websites, WordPress can be a better CMS platform with great features and plugins.
For large online stores, shopify is a better option.
Unlike WordPress, Wix does not allow users to export content and migrate to another platform in a seamless process. Therefore, if you need to migrate your website to another platform, this needs to be done manually for every single page; this can be a nightmare for content-heavy websites.
Wix offers a wide variety of beautiful and unique templates that you can work with. However, if you choose a template and publish your site, it is often quite difficult to change it to another one. So, if you are going for a template on Wix, please ensure that you have taken enough time to use the template, understand its features and accept that it will work for you for an extended period; this is the only way you can get good results.
You may face extra charges on your next renewal if you use additional apps and the free domain bonus. We don't want you to avoid Wix because of hidden costs, but you need to be aware of it.
This article shows you all you need to know about those that should use Wix and those that shouldn't use the platform. For small websites not more than 100 pages, such as restaurants, consulting services, booking, events, CV, and portfolios, Wix is the website for you to use, however, you will have problems with content-heavy websites similar to Cnet or PCmag.
