Over seventy percent of SevenRivers' website is designed using wix. Wix offers a number of robust and user friendly tools. Their free plan includes their logo at the top and bottom of the trial website, free web hosting, SSL/TLS security and a mobile version of your site. If you want to use your own custom domain name, or if you do not want the Wix branding, you can simply upgrade to a paid version, which is the same cost as regular hosting plans. However, if you prefer to have SevenRivers build your bespoke site, we would sign you up for a premium plan. With a Premium plan you can connect your own domain, remove Wix ads from your site, and more. With most Premium plans, you will receive a one year free domain voucher and vouchers for advertising on Google and Bing.
