WordPress is the most popular website builder in the world, but it is not your only option.
Wix is a drag and drop builder, if you want to build your own website without hiring a website designer. But, WordPress also lets you create a website without learning to code.
The biggest drawbacks of using a website builder like Wix is that your website will not be portable. In contrast, with WordPress you can decide at any point to move your website to another web host.
Your website is your your intellectual property. Ensure that you remain the rightful owner of your domain and your website. Keep it portable!
Rather than build your own WordPress website, why not leave that to me? I have done it many times and I follow best security practices.
