    Ticket Status : Closed - User did not react

    I am part of a non-profit organization, and we have cost-free ad-free hosting through a company that does not offer an easy way for non-tech people to create a site. 

    I have created a site here on Wix, and I would like to keep our free hosting and domain name from the other company. In looking at the directions on your site for "connecting your domain using name servers", it was not clear to me if I would be transferring domain hosting to wix in the process.  I would like to stay with DreamHost for hosting, but use Wix for creating and maintaining the site.  should I follow the directions on Wix listed in the "connecting your domain using name servers", or is there a different process I should be looking for?

    Thank you!

    Please note: Wix doesn't support the option of exporting files created using Wix to an external destination / Hosts as we host all your Wix creations on our servers.


    In order to connect your domain you are not required to transfer your domain to Wix as Wix is not a domain hosting company.

    Your domain will stay at your current domain hosting and will point to Wix Name Servers!
