The Wix design platform, including the templates, is totally free for any user (we do have templates that are Ecommerce ones- you can also use them for free but if you would like to use the online store, you will have to purchase the Ecommerce package).

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 .

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

    I have been looking for many months and Wix is truly the best I have come across.  The other website companies simply do not know abou SEO. They have descriptions missing on their pages and they have lots of keywords stuffed into their keywords section. They have H1's missing and so on. When I analysed Wix, they having a Google ranking of 8 and a page speed of 98 or so. The only problem at the moment is that I am limited to the number of colors I can add to the drop down box with Wix.  May be I am wrong but I have only managed to put about 10 or so. My daughter needs 18 colors for the customers to pick from. Plus she needs the sizes, Wix do this, so I do not have a problem with this.  The other thing is that my daughter also lets the customers pick their own name to be designed on her products.  Can anyone tell me please: Will Wix offer more colors to be put on the site and a box to write names in.  I would be very happy to do more sites with Wix if they can offer more colors.  For example if someone wants to pick from 20 clolurs they have a better choice to match their deco.  Please Wix sort this out as soon as possible. Cheers Tony

    Thank you for your compliment :)


    The websites themselves are free, this includes their availability online indefinitely. Free websites however have Wix ads on them and cannot connect to domains so their web address is username.wix.com/sitename. If you wish to remove the ads, connect to a domain and activate the online store if you are planning to sell something online you will need to upgrade. Please from the My Account page click to upgrade to view our premium packages and what they offer.

    Hi saadteen,

    Please note: In order to upgrade your domain, purchased from Wix or from other domain hosting company you will need to upgrade your site to a premium package which allows for this service.

    In other words, if you purchase Wix domain you will also need to upgrade your site to premium .


    Thank you,

    so, Wix is free if you use a wix domain? If I connect my own domain, then is not free?

    Doesn't people read anymore? The Wix Team (and I don't work for them) have answered all the questions here and people kept insulting them because they do not want to click on the link they (Wix) provided on their answers.

    Wix Team, I didn't know you existed. I haven't designed a website in more than 10 years as I was transferred to the management stuff and am not as hands-on as I want.  I came here because of a friend having her account here and asked me for a quote to renovate her website. This service you provide is brilliant for people like her without any experience on the field.

    Yes! MP3, video and payapal are all services which are offered for all users: free and premium.

    Upgrading to premium will allow to remove ads, connect domain, more storage and more!

    You can find the full list of features and prices here.

    Yes. You can continue to edit/maintain your website as much as you like after the initial creation.

    does a basic WIX template for a musician, including embedded mp3 and video player and Paypal not cost anything? Advantages to Upgrading to premium would allow him to use a specific domain name, remove WIX ads, and give more storage? I don't see prices for premium when I click on the link. How much does premium cost? As for maintaining the site, we have the ability to do that ourselves on an ongoing basis for no fee? Thanks.

    Hi Steve,

    If you choose any package other than the 'Connect Domain' premium package the Wix ads will be removed from your site.


    It's easy to connect your existing domain to your Wix site once you've set up a Premium Package. Information on how to do this can be found both here in the forum and in our Learning Center.

    If you need any further assistance please let us know.



    Adam, Wix Support
