The Wix design platform is totally free for any user.

We do have a premium offer for a small fee that enables our users to get more storage and bandwidth if they need it, the option to remove the Wix tags, and the option to connect their Wix design to their own domain name.
You can find out more about it here .
For the Wix Premium Learning Center, click here.

If you don’t need any of these options then you can use it for free as much as you like.

    Hi 

    I have an existing domain name. I want to transfer it to Wix and have a free template.

    How do i do this? Is there any COST i would have to expense at all for the transfer and using the amount of data given for a free website? How do i check if my data is 500MB or within the free category?

    If i want to remove wix ads, how much do i have to pay?

    Thank you.

    BE CAREFULL, WIX IS NOT FREE!! WHEN YOU BUILD YOUR SITE AND HAVE YOUR OWN DOMAIN THROUGH ANOTHER COMPANY YOU STILL NEED TO PURCHACE A PAKKAGE THROUGH WIX TO ENABLE THEM TO LINK YOUR DOMAIN NAME! FALSE ADVERTISING!1 THE COST IS THREE TIMES MORE THAN LOCAL COST TO HOST!

      If you read our best reply above we state very clearly and openly that the Wix design platform is totally free for any user. We do have a premium offer for a small fee that enables our users to get more storage and bandwidth if they need it, the option to remove the Wix tags, and the option to connect their Wix design to their own domain name.

       

      Wix is free because there is no time limit whatsoever on how long a free site can remain, not just in an account but published and live online.

    What is included with the free account?

    I'm trying to set up a website for our neighborhood association, which has a very low budget. What is included in the free account? Where do the ads appear on the page? What type of domain name is available with the free account?

    • cristinhulyk

      Replied by cristinhulyk March 4, 2014

      Okay, the responses below helped, but not with my main questions, which are as follows:

      1. If I just stay with the free account, what would my domain name appear as? What is the format for the "free Wix url"?

      2. How large are the ads that appear on the page? Do you have a sample page of one that is hosted through a free account I can see?

      Thank you.

      Hello,
       
       
      1. The format of your free Wix URL will be as follow:  www.username.wix.com/sitename
       
      2. You will have a banner on the bottom of your site and a samll banner on the top of the page. You can simply select a template too see how the adds look on a real site.
       
       
      Regards,
      Carla

    Hi.
    I  have a couple questions. On your website is that the templates I can get for free, but I found the pricelist for them. I am a little confused. How it works? When I get the templates, fill them and actualize them, do I have to pay for approaches?Can I take my website right away? Are there more templates from different disigners, so I could choose?

      Our Templates page shows all the templates we have. Templates cannot be taken anywhere, you choose one and make it into a unique website of your own. Templates are free, as is editing them and publishing.

       

      Premium packages activate some premium features such as the eCommerce online store (eCommerce package only), removes Wix ads (any package but the Connect Domain) and enables a site domain connection.
