How To Tell If a Website Is Wix

There are a few reasons why you might want to know what technology is being used for a website. It might be a competitor's site, or a website that you love the look and feel of and want something similar.

Either way, you'll save yourself time by knowing what platform is used and if it's possible to replicate elements you like for your own website.

For example, there are somethings you can do on WordPress design or functionality-wise that might be more complicated to replicate on Wix. By knowing the platform, you can better set your expectations, and see if a particular template was used to save yourself time.
