Two years ago, there was no Wix vs. WordPress.
Two years ago, if you’d asked me what the best platform was for building your website, I’d have shouted “WordPress!” in a heartbeat.
Never mind the purpose of the site in question. Blog? WordPress. Business site? WordPress. Portfolio? WordPress. eCommerce? Okay… Maybe this one wouldn’t have been WordPress back then. Anyway, you get the drift.
Nowadays, however, the landscape has evolved and there are a number of new players on the field. Younger players. More agile players. More purpose-driven players.
Today, we’ll look at which platform is best — the Wix vs. WordPress comparison that’s been a long time coming. By the end of this article, we’ll have answered a key question: Can the old WordPress still stack up against newcomer Wix?
In this comparison, you’ll learn:
the main difference between Wix and WordPress
the unique benefits that Wix can give you
what WordPress can offer that Wix doesn’t
which platform offers a better design
the pros and cons of Wix vs. WordPress
which is the better solution — and why.
Let’s get started…

In a Nutshell: The difference between Wix and WordPress
Before we can explain the main difference, though, we have to make one thing clear: Here, we’re comparing Wix to the self-hosted version of WordPress, which is available through WordPress.org. The .org is different from WordPress.com. If you feel as though you need more info on this, here’s a good explanation of what both WordPress types bring to the table.
By far, the biggest difference between Wix and WordPress is that WordPress is a standalone software that you need to install (or have installed by a third party) on a web server. Only then do you get to use it as the software running your site.
Wix, on the other hand, is a tool/service that you sign up for. Once you’ve signed up, Wix allows you to build, and then manage, your website all within Wix.com. It takes care of the hosting and does all the technical heavy lifting.
Think of it this way: Wix vs. WordPress is much like Google Docs vs. MS Word.
What’s Wix and how does it work?
The facts about Wix:
It’s an all-in-one platform. Wix allows you to build a website from scratch on your own.
No coding skills are required. Wix can be used by anyone.
Prices range from free to $18 a month, depending on which plan you choose. If you want a custom domain — such as YourSite.com — you’ll need to shell out a bit more.
More than 70,000,000 people are using Wix already.
