I loved the video. The only thing I don’t agree with is pricing. I’ve been using Wix for ease of use. I recently paid for a premium account with WordPress so I could explore its functionality. I pay $84/year with Wix. Upfront, WordPress was charging $96/year. However, that option only gave me access to “themes.”I thought themes were templates. Instead, they are instructions on how to build your page to look like the theme. It wasn’t that easy to follow. There are page builder plugins you could buy, but to be eligible for plugins I had to upgrade to a plan that was $300/year not to mention the additional cost for the plugin ($99), and whatever cost for the theme. I have all of these options with Wix without the extra charges. The only reason I was looking to upgrade is because of the customization. I’m not at the point where I feel like it’s worth paying $400 (possibly more depending on other plugins needed).
I completely disagree with the pricing being a tie. It’s always a pain in the ass to have a right hosting provider, and as a person who has an online shop developed on WordPress, there were many days that my hosting had issues that put me into trouble with my service which after a while forcing me to migrate to another hosting service and of course, pay more. After moving 3 times now, I have relatively better quality, but it didn’t worth the effort. Unlike that, the fact that Wix provides the hosting eases your mind on that matter so If you are new into this things and you don’t know much about hosting and how to move to a new provider and setting DNS, just go with Wix.
