Wix to Wordpress: How to Setup a WordPress Hosting

A friend of mine wanted to create a website. She started with WordPress and quickly bailed because she found it too confusing. She moved over to Wix and quickly got going on designing her website, but when she wanted to make some basic adjustments to the template, she ended up messing up some formatting. After a few hours, she finally gave up and called it “good enough”. Wix is great to a certain point, but I’ve found that most people need a more flexible system than Wix. WordPress is perfect for growing businesses and can be just as easy to use as Wix with the right guide.
