Wix.com (www.wix.com) is the world’s leading do-it-yourself web publishing platform which enables users to design, publish, maintain and host free websites without having to learn to design or code.

Founded in 2006 by brothers Avishai and Nadav Abrahami and Giora (Gig) Kaplan, Wix has revolutionized the web by developing a cutting edge publishing platform that to the average user, is intuitively simple. Wix offers everyone the opportunity to develop complex, stunning and professional sites with ease; sites that previously would have only been possible through costly web designers and developers.

It’s this ease of use and beautiful result, which has led to a meteoric rise in the platform’s popularity as web users create their own sites for new and existing business ventures, hobbies and personal goals, causes and passions. Wix has over 35 million users worldwide with over 1.3 million new users joining globally every month.

Built on a freemium business model, Wix earns its profit through premium upgrades that allow users to connect their sites to their own domains, remove Wix branding, add e-commerce capabilities and more

Headquartered in Tel Aviv, Wix also has offices in San Francisco, New York and Dnepropetrovsk. With an international userbase, including users in North America, Brazil, UK, Europe and Australia, the Wix platform operates in nine languages. The company is backed by investors Insight Venture Partners, DAG Ventures, Mangrove Capital Partners, Bessemer Venture Partners and Benchmark Capital.
