Wix Alternatives

‘Can you recommend a website builder like Wix?’ is one of the most popular questions I get through your comments and Feedback form.

The answer depends on what you mean by ‘like Wix’. Like any other website builder, Wix is a multi-faceted web service that has many aspects: a feature set, tech support, templates, ease-of-use etc. Hence, when saying ‘websites like Wix’, different users may mean different characteristics: while some expect to get hundreds of modern templates, others are looking for a site builder with a library of applications like Wix App Market, or an intuitive drag-and-drop editing environment.

Whether you’ve tried Wix and didn’t like it, or want something cheaper, or you just want to compare Wix to the competition, you may take a note of another similar by cost and functionality platforms.

The best 3 alternatives to Wix are:

#1 uKit

If you’re looking for a Wix alternative that is intended for small businesses and offers fully responsive templates, then uKit is just what you need.

Similar to Wix, uKit is a drag-and-drop site builder that requires no coding at all. With this site builder, you build everything yourself, using general site elements like images, content blocks, buttons, dividers, and also easy-to-integrate third-party apps. It’s intuitive and fun. You can also read about Wix and uKit pros and cons in our comparison of those platforms.

uKit Templates

 

When choosing a template for your website, you can see what your site will look like across different devices – each template in the library works in demo mode. You can also preview your website on different devices when working on it – just click the ‘Preview‘ button in the control panel.

In terms of pricing, uKit keeps things simple. There’s only one paid plan – $5/mo, and it is discounted to $4/mo if you choose to pay annually.

#2 Weebly

In some cases, users mean the overall feel of the system: intuitive editor + fresh look + trendy templates + regular updates and releases etc. If that’s the case, the closest Wix alternative, in our opinion, is Weebly. Its in-browser editor is also based on the WYSIWYG and drag-and-drop principles. It’s intuitive, fast and modern.

The Weebly team is constantly updating the system and is really close to the audience: they regularly announce various contests, share Weebly success stories on the official blog and are very active on social media.

Weebly’s free plan has a less noticeable ad than that of Wix, and a more pleasant fromat of free subdomains. Ad-free Weebly sites start at $8/mo and go up to $49/mo.

However, there are no two site builders alike. Weebly differs from Wix in many aspects. We’ve touched upon most of them in our Wix vs Weebly comparison.

#3 XPRS

In case your major criteria is the ease of use, we would recommend XPRS – its builder at the first blush is very similar to that of Wix. XPRS allows you to create a fully responsive website using new ‘Polydom‘ technology – the way of building site blocks from dynamic content, but at the same time it has some drag-and-drop limitations. However, XPRS templates are also fresh and bold.

Concerning to the pricing policy, XPRS is more favorable to students, creative people and non-profits – they have a possibility to build and operate a website for free. For commercial use the paid plan values at $6/mo.
