    Hi Wix, I have been publishing my site that I made through your website but whenever I publish it, I cannot search the website through google and i have to type in my site's address on the address bar. I want my site to be visible in google whenever I type in the keywords. Do I have to upgrade it order to be visible in search engine? Please answer.

      You don't have to upgrade but it will help. If you upgrade and obtain a domain it will go a long way towards improving search engine visibility. Being found through search engines is far from being automatic, improve your chances by reading about SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and building your site accordingly. Click here.

    Hello, I have a gift shop, I saw an ad that this website is free, viewing the comments, I guess basic alone is free, when it comes to customers checking out and buying.........this that part of the basic package?

      An online store is not a basic feature, it requires you to upgrade with an eCommerce premium plan. Alternatively we have some store apps available in the app market through the editor, each store has it's price, features and conditions for activating it.

      So I have to purchase an upgrade to publish my domain? Even if I don't purchase my domain from Wix? Because that's the conclusion I am drawing from your links.

      What happens if I cancel the plan after I publish the site? And will the site be editable if I can the Upgrade?

       

    • scbookworm22

      And if I purchase the Upgrade for a current site, will that upgrade be available if I want to connect a domain and publish a separate site?

      Hello,

       

      Thank you for getting back to us. I will try answer each of your questions individually to keep it as clear as possible.

       

      What happens if I cancel the plan after I publish the site?

       

      If you cancel the upgrade the site will revert to the free version meaning the domain will no longer be connected and the other premium features will be removed.

       

      And will the site be editable if I can the Upgrade?

       

      The site is editable before and after upgrading.

       

      And if I purchase the Upgrade for a current site, will that upgrade be available if I want to connect a domain and publish a separate site? 

       

      Upgrades are site specific, so if you would like to connect 2 domains to two sites that would require upgrading twice. You can however transfer the premium plan between sites under the same account.

       

      Feel free to let us know if you require any more information

       

      Best regards

    We've built our site through WIX, but have our own domain name and web hosting through crazy domains....... are we still able to upload our site to our own domain and existing web hoster? With or without a fee? Thanks

      Hey!

       

      I'm afraid that's not possible. Please bear in mind that Wix doesn't support the option of exporting files created using Wix to an external destination / Hosts as we host all your Wix creations on our servers.

       

      The editor needs constant connection to our servers, it is not possible to work with it offline or save your pages to your computer.

      We host all your Wix creations on our servers. The advantages of using Wix as your host include improvements to your site's loading time, search engine optimization and more.

       

      You can connect your Wix site to your own domain! For information about how to do this, click here.

       

      Let us know if you need any further assistance!

    It is so utterly annoying when you find a good product, that the website states is FREE. Then you discover that if you really want to use this product, hey, it aint free. I understand nothing in life is FREE but I thought this would be free because of ads and such. The asking price is anyhow NOT high. It is quite cheap. So I will go for this premium deal with shoppingcart

      Hello,

       

      Yes only the basic package is free, having a shopping cart and eCommrece features does require upgrading.

    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.
