To that you want to arrive more far, then yes that you will have to happen through box and to pay by some of its “plans premium”.
The gratuitous plan also forces to you to accept several aspects as:

As we are very positive, we want to begin telling all the good one you that it must use this tool to create your webpage.

Already there are it to you counted before but, doubt does not fit that will be the main reason to begin with her.

All of them are editable and are oriented in function to the field that you want:

And by all means, with version for mobiles and tablets.
4. Account with its own app store
Wix allows third parties to develop applications and to include them in which they call “app market”.
The normal thing, is that there you find tools to extend the functionalities of your webpage as:
- To create a forum.
- To incorporate a gallery of images (it discovers the best banks of gratuitous images here).
- Form of subscription when newsletter.
You can see them all entering here, but they ten in account that all is not gratuitous.
5. It uses the last technology
A time ago, Wix he was very criticized because it used technology flash to maquetar his webpages, and that caused that it did not secure good positions in Google.
That already happened to history. Nowadays it uses HTML5 and CSS3, that are the standards, reason why you do not have to worry to you.
3 disadvantages to use Wix
As everything were not going to be beautiful words, the moment arrives for speaking of all the bad one that it has to send your site here.

And it does not matter that you are usuary of gratuitous payment or. You do not command there.
In order to see it with a resemblance, he is as living in a rent house. Although pages every month is not yours and, if at some time you decide to leave it, you cannot take it to you with you.
2. To pay to avoid announcements

If you want that your webpage does not show publicity (something that you will not want if it is for a business) you must do to you with a premium plan.
3. You cannot change of group
Good, in truth yes that you can. Only that in case of doing it, you will lose all the content which you have generated.
Thus it is. In Wix, the content is bound to the group reason why if you decide to change, it will be as returning to begin of zero.
For that reason, it is important that you choose the design well before beginning.
4. Forget “to touch” code to you
If you do not know, you will think that it does not pass anything, but is not thus.
Ten in account that at some time, if increase much, you can want to contract a designer for modifies your Web and to have it more customized.
If it beams in Wix, will only be able to arrive at which it leaves the publisher him (who certainly will not be sufficient).
