Is WIX a great way to start a website? I heard they have free hosting and a website builder. Is it really good? or there are something else into it when you subscribe on their services? Any comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated...

My experience with WIX and other do it yourself "website builder" services out there is that they are good for certain types of websites, and horrible for others.

If you are looking to create a brochure website that talks about what your business can do, perhaps with a small amount of e-commerce, then something like this will work. But, once you start needing advanced functionality or if you dislike how WIX implemented something, you are going to be disappointed and limited.

WIX and similar services are usually used by non-web developers who just want a simple and inexpensive website. In my opinion, it may be a great starter website for those who don't want to spend a lot of money to get started, but if your website or business grows, you could easily outgrow WIX too, because you will typically start needing functionality they do not offer.

I appreciate all your comments and suggestions guys, having a lot of ideas from other people is really a great way to understand things. It's really different when it comes to planning and reality. I have been into technology business for quite sometime mainly hardware and automation related projects. I started exploring web development and integration to enhance my capability and knowledge. Although i think i have the basic skills to achieve my goals, i was not progressing at all until i decided to seek help from you guys. Just reading the posts and comments here have greatly increased my know how and awareness. I salute you guys...:ahappy:

I have read on other blogs and forums that most professionals can actually tell when it's a website made from a template. While they are handy for a small business or minor tasks, they do not work well for SEO and bigger websites with more demanding tasks.

Yes you can tell by inspecting the source very quickly.
