Finding the ideal web page builder is not easy. To make the process easier, WPBeginner have made a comparison between WordPress and Wix, which we’ve summarised below.

WordPress may well be the currently most popular CMS (content management system) in the world, however, is not the only one on the market. Wix is ​​steadily gaining popularity, and has succeeded primarily through countless advertising campaigns on TV and the web.

Advantages and disadvantages can be found naturally in both CMS systems but, generally, WordPress is the frontrunner when the two are compared side by side. Although Wix excels with its outstanding ease of use, the cloud-based builders can, in terms of themes and design layouts, offer much less than the WordPress platform.

When it comes to apps WordPress is a cut above the rest. Although Wix's App Library is getting bigger, it cannot keep up with the huge selection of WordPress plugins. Of course, when it comes to costs and prices, WordPress is also ahead of its competitors, and WordPress hosting companies offer countless flexible schedules, which Wix and fellow companies just can’t compete with.
