    Go to your account and find the project you want to change the name on.

     on the right i will say "Site Actions" and under i will say "preview website" "connect domain, "My site history" and "duplicate site" under all that there will be a small "more" button.

    click that and three more options pop out. click "rename" and you can change it.

      Unfortunately, what you're trying to do is not possible. A free Wix URL will always be in the following format: username.wix.com/sitename.

      You can find step by step instructions about how to change your username here.
      To change your site name, go to My Account -> click on Manage & Edit Site next to your site and click Rename underSite Actions on the right side.

      To change your own domain please go into the Wix Domain Manager (My Account -> Domains from the top bar) and remove your old domain and then add the new domain again under your preferred connection method or purchase a domain.

      To connect your own domain to your site, upgrade to Premium and purchase a domain or get one for free (for the purchase of yearly package- Combo, Unlimited or eCommerce)! Click here to learn more.

      If you still do not own the new domain name, you can purchase it from Wix! You can find more information here.

    Can wix team provide a free domain for at least 3 months before switching to the sub-domain?

    Also how can those of us who are living in countries where credit cards are not used get our own domains. my site's address looks bad.

    I changed my site name but it still shows old site name. Can you guys help please?

    • shayb7 Wix Team

      Replied by shayb7 August 17, 2013



      I can see that currently your Wix site's name is ' kenleyevents' and you have your domain  kenleyevents.com connected to this site. When accessing the site the title that appears on the browser's tab is 'kenleyevents-1', if you would like to change it please  enter your editor, and proceed to "Settings" > "SEO (Google)", from here change the Site title.


      Your site title will be displayed in your browser bar while your site is loading. Once your site has loaded, the home page title will be displayed.  If you do not want there to be any change in the browser bar when your site is loading, simply make the site title and home page title identical.


      For more information about meta tags click  here .


      If after changing the titles you are still unable to view it properly, please clear your browser's cache and check again. You can find step by step instructions  here .

      For free Users:  The format of the free Wix site URL is username.wix.com/sitename.
      You can find your URL simply by clicking on Settings inside your editor > Site Address. You will find your URL under "Your Site Address is:".


      So all you need is to edit your username:

      Please go to  My Account > under  Manage Premium, click  Settings.

      Change your username > click Update Personal Details. The changes will get updated automatically. You can change your email and password there too.

      Please note that you cannot change your username to one that you have previously used or that someone else is using. It must be a unique username. For more information click  here or check out the video below: 


      Please don't hesitate to contact us for more information.

      Hey yafa444,


      Posting to your Facebook Wall by using the Wix Editor generates your site's most up to date thumbnail and description. Your thumbnail and description may not be up to date if you post to your Wall directly (instead of through the Wix Publish process: Publish > OK > Share on Facebook). Please make sure to update the site's thumbnail  here.

      If you post to your Wall directly and the information is not up to date, try using Facebook's Debugger  here. Simply type your website URL in the Input URL or Access Token field and click Debug.  The Facebook Debugger will process your site so that the title, description and thumbnail pictures appear up-to-date when you post your site to your Wall or Page.


      I hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any further questions.

      Sincerely, Leah Wix Support

    Hi, I followed the instructions for changing my name, however the old name is still showing up! Its been about 2 days. How long does it usually take for it to change? 

    All I was suppose to do was go to My Account, and hit rename correct?

      The old name will indeed still connect to your site.(Backward compatibility)

      Is there a problem with the new name?
