Webs vs Wix

by 15 comments
I want to create a website, I do not wish to make money on it, I just want to make a popular website. The site will be something between Ask Men, CKM, FHM, Sports Illustrated.

Which platform, builder, hosting, editor is better, Webs or Wix?

    Try building with wordpress if you want to rank well. Choose your domain name well after checking for keywords. Hosting on hostgator is probably the best

    Wix is good for fashion, photography, art or simple portfolio websites. I find the loading time to be extremely slow for e-commerce sites. I have never used Web but after having experience with Wix, never again. Like others, I recommend wordpress or joomla..

    I cant understand why anyone would want to build something on someone elses property.

    Makes absolutely no sense.

    My advise is to create a own website, just with your own hosting and your own domain name.

    Why? Simply: there are a lot of people (users) on Wix or Webs.
    And all the users can create content, doesn't matter what.
    If someone builds a very, very bad website (and there are a lot of on these platforms), you are gonna live on their 'success' (not).

    So if I was you, I would buy a domain name on godaddy or hostgator.
    After that, be sure that you register the hosting at hostgator.
    There is a one click install service and you have your website up and running in seconds.
    (one click install for Wordpress and other CMS systems, I recommend Wordpress)

    Hope this is good information for you! (a thanks would be nice if so )

    But not safely or securely, if you do it that way. That's the least secure way of installing a WordPress blog, Nigel. If you're going to install it that way, you'd actually be much safer and less open to hackers at Wix!
    There you've got a point.
    But in my experience there's no site wich is EVER been hacked.
    (on my account)
    But it's easy if you want..!
    For more secure you can install it by your own..

    I personally have used webs for my first site which generates between $100-$300/ month. I also bought my domain name with webs for a year.

    Webs is a flaming piece of garbage. The interface is incredibly buggy.
