No doubt, Wix has certain benefits and served more appealing demands depending upon your work and experience. It fulfills website aims; but, those who have worked with WordPress can feel the difference without any hesitation. It feels good, far better than Wix.

Why Choose WordPress?

People like to use WordPress instead of Wix; as it has self-hosted website development platform. Because, it lets you pick out which domain hosting you wish to use for getting your website live. One of the reasons; it has numerous graphical depicting hosting choices for WordPress and reasonable costs.

While, Wix does not allow to host your website from somewhere else. So, it means you are completely stuck with the one you are with. Suppose, if you find your website is running very sluggish due to poor hosting services or else, if you wish to move your website’s data to any other domain, you cannot do so.

Variations of Website’s Design

WordPress makes available with thousands of premade website designs which can be selected as per your needs. There also exists user created WordPress themes to choose as your required theme as per your business needs. All such themes are absolutely free while there are also a large variety of premium themes available to buy. Moreover, such WordPress themes can also be modified and adjusted according to your requirements.

While, when you choose to build a website using the Wix platform. You can select your templates from the 400 options available to choose the themes. But, you cannot access the code or make any required changes to such designs or themes according to your needs which is a great setback of Wix.

Able To Change Site Design

The WordPress allows you to readily switch between the themes you like to change at any time. Because such themes will not affect the onset content already existed on your website. You can use any format adjustments as per your needs to fit better with your content to any freshly chosen theme.

While one of the most limiting features of the website built with Wix environment is that once you select any template, you cannot change or remove it ever.

Support Multiple Users on One Site

A website developed using Wix interface has the only single user account and admin of the website.

While a website created in WordPress platform, allows you to create multiple accounts to modify your website. Even, you can assign several roles to perform after creating necessary account’s user for them. For instance, to update and adding new blog posts to your website. Likely, you can create accounts and give them limited access to the writers to post or publish blog articles. They have no access to use other functions of your website which main admin can perform.

Necessary Plug-In Support

WordPress also allows you to apply as many plugins to fulfill your needs for coding and the formation of plug-ins that offer its users. There exists the incredible number of tools also available to modify and control their websites accordingly.

Whereas, Wix does not offer any use of plug-ins, but deals in apps to support and manage the websites in its place. You can find hundreds of apps available to select and use according to your business needs. But, all those entirely developed by the Wix team and have very fewer apps to select from them.
