Wix

 

Wix offers subscriptions that are great for those on a tighter budget, while still providing the opportunity to build a beautiful, user-friendly website with all the functions and features you need.

There are many 'apps' on Wix which provide you with all the features you need on your site. You can access additional features, which are particularly useful for marketing, by upgrading your Wix Ascend plan (which is separate to the main site subscription described below).
