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.

Best Wix Competitors

# Name Price
1 uKit $4 to $12/mo
2 Weebly Free to $38/mo
3 XPRS Free to $8/mo

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:

Wix Alternative #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.

uKit Templates

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.

uKit Editor

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 are 4 paid plans – from $4 to $12 monthly. These are discounted if you choose to pay annually. You can also read about Wix and uKit pros and cons in our comparison of those platforms by clicking links below.

Wix Alternative #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.

Weebly

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 $38/mo.

Weebly Editor

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.

Wix Alternative #3 – IM 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.

XPRS

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 $8/mo.

    http://www.martinteixeira.com is a best alternative to wix

  • Vladimir Putispenser Here

    These aren’t by the slightest chance alternatives to Wix.com because they aren’t freeform drop & drag…

  • Mireia

    Thanks for the info. Do you know if there is a web editor similar to wix but buying? That you do not have to pay every month … Thanks!

    • Hi, Mirea,
      If you don’t want to pay monthly, I advise you to try three services:
      1) XPRS (mentioned in this post) – it’s completely free for students, artists and other creative people, so if you are the one of them, you’re lucky.
      2) Mobirise (see my review https://superbwebsitebuilders.com/mobirise-review/). This website builder is downloadable and free to use. Of course, there are paid extension, but the basic pack is enough to start a website. You can create and edit it on your desktop as easily as with Wix. But you should know that hosting is not included there. You’ll have to find a proper hosting for the website by yourself.
      3) Ucraft – it’s like Wix – an online website builder, but it has a good tariff called Lifetime. So you can buy it and use this website builder forever. See my review in details: https://superbwebsitebuilders.com/ucraft-review/.
      P.S. Hosting is included here.
      Regards,
      Howard.
