Wix is free online software that lets you build your own Flash website – and is a great tool for budding designers, small business owners, and basically anyone creative looking for a way to create a customized, high quality website without spending a fortune.
Wix Web Site Builder
Wix’ website builder has a clean, graphic drag & drop interface. With Wix, users can create a website entirely from scratch, or by customizing one of Wix’ stunning Flash website templates. There are photography, business, musician, artist and e-commerce websites, filled with design elements suited to each niche, and can streamline a user’s design process.
Get Started With Template Galleries
To get started, browse through template galleries inside the Create section of the homepage. Click on a template you wish to edit (or select “blank website”) and add your own text, photos, links, music, etc. and customize the color, font, size, effects, settings, etc. of everything you see. Everything is drag & drop.
Use your own content or browse through Wix’ free galleries of clip art, photos, widgets, music players, Flash animation and more. Photos can also be easily purchased from Fotolia’s stock archive, directly through Wix. Upload videos from YouTube, 5Min or Metacafe, or from your own computer.
Wix is Revolutionary
What makes Wix so revolutionary is the fact that the websites are fully compatible with search engine crawlers. Despite Flash’s reputation for not being search-engine friendly, the programmers at Wix built their free website builder so that each website has an xml file, that mirrors the Flash code but in HTML. This HTML code is then fed directly to search engines.
Wix also provides free hosting, under the Wix domain. So you’ll get a free site with a URL that looks like www.wix.com/yourusername/yourwebsite’sname. Upgrading to a premium package lets you point your Wix website to your own domain, without the Wix URL. There are many premium packages to choose from, all at affordable rates. There are frequently promotional discounts and coupons.
You can totally let your imagination run wild with Wix. To really see what can be done with this unique web design tool, visit wix.com. Explore what others have done using Wix, browse through the template galleries, and sign up for a free website account. Play around with the builder for awhile, customizing one of the free templates to gain familiarity. You’ll find yourself having more fun than you ever thought possible.
