Wix Premium Price Plans

Wix web and email hosting

You don't need to buy separate web hosting with Wix premium as it's a whole package where you get your domain, web hosting and website all in the one place. You do however, if you need to, get email hosting elsewhere as Wix does not offer an email service with their plans.

Conclusion

Wix is the best tool to use for creating Flash website fast, easy, beautifully and effectively. There are no other better choices out there in the market for creating a completely Flash-based site and it is cheap to use as well. If you go out there to a web development agency and ask them to create a Flash site for you, I can guarantee it's going to cost you a few hundred pounds for a few page site. You could of course learn to program in Flash too which requires Actionscripting and also need to design all your graphics. If that's too much for you then do it on Wix website builder and you could save yourself a lot time and money.
