Wix.com is a start-up company that introduced a revolutionary Flash website builder that allows for the intuitive creation of Flash website designs. Wix is introducing groundbreaking developments in its infrastructure, in addition to a new HTML component.
Wix Flash websites are search engine friendly because the company developed a method through which it pulls the text from the website and feeds it to the search engines as html via an xml file. For non-technical readers, what this means is that a Flash website created with Wix can be read and indexed by Google. Now hot new developments concerning html are being introduced to the website builder. Users who wish to embed actual html code into their Flash website can do so using this new HTML component feature.
This HTML component will make it possible for the users to embed an endless variety of features onto their free website. Popular examples include Google calendars, polls, blogs and any other feature that can be embedded from another website by adding html code. This new development will also be announced through Wix's official blog which will also send users to an instructional video on youtube.com.
Another major development relates to changes in the website's infrastructure. Wix is transitioning to something its executives are calling the "always on" model. This development comes as a solution to server maintenance issues. Until now, the company has been attempting to run all maintenance work during the night to minimize discomfort to the users. While the Wix technicians were busy running maintenance procedures, Wix users all around the world were encountering problems accessing the builder and their website. Wix's solution to this is to divide the system into segments so that the entire system doesn't rely on a "single core of gravity," to quote one Wix employee.
In the future this will lead to further exciting developments. Aside from preventing any hiccups in the Flash website's usability, this will allow for password protected pages and will also separate the 'publish' and 'save' functions, giving users more control over the release of information and the free website publishing settings.
Wix was established in 2005 and has its headquarters in NY and offices in Tel-Aviv. It is backed by Mangrove Capital Partners and Bessemer Venture Partners.
