How does the web app look and feel to use?

Wix is very easy to use and the design of the site is very clean and professional. Compared to many of the other similar sites, this one has a modern feel about it. It also has a number of tutorials and instructions which make creating your first site or online publication really easy. You don’t even need to know anything about creating websites, and you don’t need to learn any code. The website however is a little slow to use, but this shouldn’t be a problem once you are logged in.

How does the registration process work?

Creating an account on Wix is very easy; you have to enter your email address, choose a username and enter a password. You will need to confirm your email address by following the instructions in the email that’s sent to you. After you have done this you will then be walked through the process of creating your account and building your first sites.

What does it cost to use the application?

Wix has a free version and premium accounts where you can pay for additional features. You will sign up using a free account, and you are able to upgrade your account whenever you want to. If you don’t need any of these advanced features then you can continue using the site for free, the features on offer do change from time to time so it’s a good idea to check the website. The paid versions run from 4.95 euros a month to 15.90 euros a month. The company advertises the 14.95 a month package as its "best value." That package gives you 2.5 GB of storage and unlimited bandwidth.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Wix is a fantastic site for anyone that wants to build flash or HTML5 websites without having to learn how to write websites from scratch. There’s no need to learn HTML or anything complicated, all you need to do is drag things around. The system is free, stable and very sophisticated.
