    Hey guys, I was at the end of creating a landing page with wix and then I realized that the hosting was too expensive. I really like the landing page but unfortunately I could not afford the hosting as it is yearly basis thing and I already have hosting with bluehost.

    I wanted to know if i could just copy the source code and paste in into another hosting platform or if you guys have any free and beginner friendly recommendations.

    I tried weebly but the pages just don't look that good.

    I would post a screenshot of the default version of the landing page but I don't know how.

    Just coping out the code into raw HTML wont work as it will have wixs mark up and css. If you are some what good with coding you maybe bale to fix it but..
    I am sure you can hire someone to do it and if its just one site prob not that much. There are some tools to rip sites as well but never used them

    hey @The0ry there are sites ( just google "convert wix theme to wordpress" ) and they will convert it into a theme file for you but the animations won't be there, just the pages and theme styles etc will remain ( this is how it was when i checked before, they might have ways to convert it entirely including the animations now i'm not sure, just google and check ). Once you have downloaded the zipped theme file, go to cpanel on your hosting and install Wordpress. Then go to themes and upload the zipped file and your site should be there.

    Incase no site is able to convert your wix site entirely, let me know, i will obviously need to see your Wix site to see if i'm able to replica the design entirely into Wordpress for you. But if you don't want to reveal your niche or something to me then Google and YouTube are your best friend :)

    Thanks for the info

    I just googled through the first three pages for that search term and others and all I could really find are paid services. Those services are more for people who have probably invested a lot of time into building their site already. Looking for a free method

    Try YouTube. They should have a detailed tutorial on the method but it might be a bit lengthy and tedious to do as much as i remember. That would probably be the only "free" way.

    Advice : If you end up not finding a way, then spend some time on YouTube and learn how to create a site using Wordpress (a bit of a learning curve + creativity). You should be able to re-create the Wix site up to 70% atleast if not 100% including the animations and everything.

    i know all this may sound complicated, but to get things done for free it isn't always easy.

    Ill keep looking. I have some experience with wordpress still learning the ins and out at the moment though. Thanks for the reply.

    I also have access to @Festinger Template Vault just wanted to put that out there in case someone knows of any decent landing pages inside his vault. I will keep the search going though
