You can set up a professional looking website for free. If you want your own domain name (URL), your website will cost you, roughly, from $4 to $8 a month.*

  3. Fill in your email address and a password (something easy to remember but hard to guess, like your favorite dish and a number or two. Be sure to include a capital letter).

    Important: the email is the way you will communicate with Wix for the life of your website. Make sure you keep that email and can access it! (If you prefer, you can just sign in with Facebook.)
