Built to connect vs. built to lock-in

We aren't here to limit the reach of your creativity. Vev can seamlessly connect to other platforms or be used as a standalone site. Use the embed feature to copy and paste a bit of code to host on a custom domain without any restrictions.

Wix does not allow for self-hosting. Any site you build is hosted on their servers and is part of Wix's ecosystem.



Vev vs. Wix
What is the difference?

Wix

Vev

Design freedom

Our no-code web design platform offers flexibility and complete design freedom. Build anything from scratch, such as responsive websites that normally would be built with code, to marketing material, eBooks, landing pages and more. With Vev, you don’t have to switch platforms or adhere to templates; you are free to build whatever you want - and even include it on your existing website. You’ll also find plenty of customization options in the form of animated add-ons and other elements which are found directly in the platform.


Use Vev to scale the production of all your digital assets and streamline your production process. From ideation to launch, our design, code and content editors give both designers and developers the space and tools they need to create without limits.


Wix’s user-friendly platform has over 800 designer-made templates along with a drag-and-drop editor that makes creating a website easy for anyone who wants an online presence. The templates are geared towards certain industries or niches, making it a good option for small businesses and websites.


Users also have the option of building from scratch if they so choose. Alternatively, Wix’s ADI will instantly build a personalized website for you after answering a few simple questions.


Hosting

Vev provides various hosting options. You can host with us, connect and publish directly to your server, or even embed into any CMS.



Having the site or content hosted on their own server is important for some companies because it ensures that the web content created in Vev is included in their existing domain structure. It also streamlines and automates the publishing process, so you can make edits and updates without needing to play with code or involve your IT department if you need to make a change on a page.







Any website you create with Wix must be hosted and operated on their servers in order for it to work properly. You can’t export digital files, blog posts or web pages because Wix’s SaaS architecture does not support external hosting.


If you decide to embed your site into an external location, then Wix cannot provide you with any support if you need it and doesn’t have any control over how your site appears or functions.


Content ownership

You own the finished site and all of your content even if you host and publish a Vev site on your own CMS.


Unlike many platforms, where you have to copy/paste all your content and designs, and rebuild from scratch we offer it as a service; we’ll export all your sites and projects as a downloadable Zip file. This makes it safe to start using Vev without being 'locked in' - in case you decide to unsubscribe from Vev.





Anything you create and publish on your website belongs to you and Wix doesn’t claim any ownership rights on your content.


Since you cannot export your data, whatever you build won’t make it to your new site. You have to either start from scratch or manually copy and paste your data, which could take a long time for larger websites.


Code flexibility and customization

Our code editor seamlessly combines code and no-code, and allows users to create their own components using ReactJS with TypeScript support. Extend any public component, modify it, or develop fully customizable front-end components that can be shared with all team members and themed in the design editor for real-time collaboration.


Developers can connect styles to the Design Editor, allowing designers to change the theme of components without changing a single line of code.



Velo by Wix is an open development platform for building immersive web applications. No coding knowledge is required, although having some knowledge of JavaScript will make building custom interactions and more advanced components easier. Velo only works in the Wix ecosystem, so just like other content you create in the platform, it cannot be moved to another host provider.

Collaboration

Vev is a highly collaborative platform that allows you to work and edit in real-time, which makes streamlining digital assets and facilitating workflows between designers, developers and content creators easy. You can even create teams, add users, assign roles and share workspaces so everyone has access. Every team has accessibility to their own workspace, projects, hosting, plugins, libraries, fonts and components.








Wix doesn’t have simultaneous collaboration. However, users can invite collaborators, set up profiles, assign specific permissions and customize access depending on their role.


Collaborators will need to sign up for a Wix account to access website editing if they don’t already have one.









Analytics and tracking

There are plenty of user-friendly plugins available in Vev that enable you to add and control tracking pixels, metadata, SEO and other third-party integrations in your site or projects without a hitch. You can also plug in any analytics or third-party platform you like.




Wix has built-in SEO tools, as well as their own Wix Analytics to track site performance and stats. It’s also possible to add third-party marketing integrations such as Google Analytics, Facebook Pixel and more.



Pricing

Our free plan allows you to test out Vev, mock-up projects, publish unlimited live sites with the Vev watermark, and have unlimited contributors without needing to sign up for a trial period. No credit card required. When you're ready, unlock more opportunities with our account plans and add hosting to go live.




You can create a website for free. You also have the option of trying a premium plan and if you decide to cancel within 14 days, you get a full refund.


With a premium plan, you’re able to connect your own domain, remove Wix ads from your site, and more.




Support

Vev offers various support plans such as an in-app support chat and a dedicated customer success agent, depending on the level of your plan. Additionally, we have a robust Help Center with documentation, in-depth video tutorials, webinars and learning material on getting started, design features, the different editors, hosting, SEO and more. Users can get in contact with our support team through the Help Center.


We also have an official Discord community where you can connect with other creatives, get feature updates, and share ideas.





Wix’s Help Centre has articles and videos on getting started, site management, their editor, design and editing tips, and more. Through Wix Learn, users have access to online courses, tutorials, webinars and certifications on various topics such as site building and design, coding with Velo, SEO, digital marketing, etc.


If you need to get in touch with someone from customer care, you must first log into your Wix account to send in a support request.
