    Hello,

    I was wondering if its possible to have my own unique site name without including "username.wix.com/".

    For example, I want my site name to be something like

    "www.mybusinessname.com"   instead of "www.username.wix.com/mybusinessname"

    Thanks in advance

    HI,

     

    Once you are done creating your Wix document, you may connect your own domain (for example www.mydomain.com). You will need to purchase a domain and upgrade your site to one of our Premium packages that allows for this service.

     

    You'll find all the details regarding the different Premium packages and what services they offer here.


    If you purchased a domain from a different domain hosting company, you can connect it to your Wix site by following the instructions here.


    In order to complete the process ask your hosting company (where you purchased your domain name from) to point your domain to the Wix server using the following cnames: ns1.wix.com & ns2.wix.com.

     

    Note that once they have made the changes, the domain can take 72 hours to fully propagate.

     

    I hope this helps! Please feel free to contact us again for any future assistance!
