You can start building a Wix website for free, but you’ll probably want to add a domain name and Wix paid plan later. To begin, hit “Get Started” on the Wix website, fill in your email address, and set a password. Don’t forget to confirm your email address later.

Step 2: Choose a website type

Wix has an onboarding wizard to assist you in setting up your website. First, you’re asked whom you’re creating the site for. You’re then asked about the type of website that you want to create from a shortlist that includes an online store, music site, portfolio, and business. Finally, you must specify your level of experience, from “never done this before” to “built sites professionally.” Enter the details that best represent you, and click “Start Now”.

Step 3: Choose a template

Wix is known for its wide range of templates that you can use to build your website. Browse through the many categories and types until you find a template that suits your style. You’ll be able to change all the content later. When you’ve found the perfect template, click “Edit”.

Step 4: Choose a Wix domain

Before you can save your website, you need to choose a name for it. This will make up part of the URL that people can visit to view your site. Later, when you’re happy with how your site looks, you can buy a top-level domain from Wix. Alternatively, you can buy a domain from another domain registrar and point your domain to Wix.
