Wix Gives Out Free Domains

December 29, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Wix.com, a burgeoning start-up company in the field of website building is giving out free domains.

Wix provides galleries filled with free Flash templates in a slew of different web designs, including business website templates, photography website templates and much, much more. In addition to these free website templates the company has developed a powerful website building platform with that includes an easy to learn GUI interface, with which the templates can be easily customized and personalized.

Users are encouraged to choose a template and create a free website for themselves. This free website can be published, promoted and re-edited incurring no addition costs. However, Wix has refrained from giving out certain things for free, and that is changing this holiday season.

This holiday season Wix.com has forged a natural alliance with Network Solutions, an online solutions company that supplies domains in addition to a host of other web services while emphasizing support of small businesses. Together, they have launched a campaign through which Wix users, who upgrade their free account to premium, can obtain a free domain. They can choose any domain they like, as long as it is available of course, and direct their Flash website to that domain.

The holiday upgrade package is a special upgrade of one of three premium packages, the combo, the unlimited package and the ecommerce package that also includes activation of a shopping cart. A standard upgrade includes more storage room, meaning Wix users that have created a free website can upload more content, pictures, videos etc, to their website. This content will be safely protected on the wix.com servers. In addition, they will be receiving more bandwidth, making their website faster to upload and improving its usability. While free websites created with Wix also include a few Wix advertisements, the premium website will be free of any ads and the user will be able to use his own chosen domain, for free.

Creating a website for free and using a unique and personalized domain is an important promotional tool for small businesses all over the world. The internet gives small businesses a marketing edge that once belonged solely to larger enterprises with greater capital. Both Wix.com and Network Solutions, a subsidiary of General Atlantic, are dedicated to promoting and developing small businesses by offering special opportunities that allow small business to compete in a larger market.
