Goodbye Wix Hello Wordpress – Switching from Wix to Wordpress

Goodbye Wix Hello WordPress – Switching from Wix to WordPress

Why you should switch from Wix to a hosted Wordpress site

When I started my Online Business Project I decided to host my Website at WIX.com. The code of the site got buggy and horribly slow over time. No matter what I tried, the user experience was horrible and it couldn’t be improved. After a thorough research switching from WIX to WordPress got inevitable. With the promise of a better solution within my grasp, I only had to figure out away, to move all my content from Wix to Wordpress. The actual process got quite challenging really fast.

Why at first WIX.com was the right decision

Back in 2017 I had no idea how to operate a website and why I’d need one in the long run. WIX.com offered a visually appealing and affordable solution for my needs. The Drag and Drop Website Builder was a welcome and easy way to build my first website. Even tough it still took me over a month to finalize my website, It helped me to grow my business and give my work the professional look it needed.

Switching from Wix to WordPress. Is it easy?

The easy answer to this questions is clearly no. Switching from Wix to WordPress isn’t easy. Especially if you have a lot of content in your Blog. If you are considering Webhosting solutions, take your time before you decide. Starting with the wrong platform can not only cost you a lot of money, it even can keep your business from reaching it’s potential. So think through everything your website needs to deliver and choose the right provider.

Was it worth to switch to WordPress?

Absolutely. It was a hell of a work to finish my new website, but it was worth every drop of sweat, tears and blood. In the process I was able to learn a lot about how the Internet works and this will also help me to become a better Blogger in return.

But what about you?

I was wondering if other people were facing similar problems. If you’d like me to post tutorials and more detailed information on how I pulled off the merge from WIX.com to a hosted WordPress solution, hit me up in comments.

By the way I highly recommend SiteGround as a hosting service. Their support helped me a lot while I was moving my Domain from Wix. If you’d like to support me check out their Offerings through this Link

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive. Was thinking about starting using analytics. Do you recommend it?
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    I also want to improve SEO of my website. Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Regards
    Jan Zac
