      Hi,

      Unfortunately, no. Wix does not support the option of exporting files, created using Wix, to an external destination or host. All Wix creations must be hosted on Wix's servers. The advantages of using Wix as your host include improvements to your site's loading time, search engine optimization and more.

       

      Please note: Wix hosts your site for you. You do not need to pay for the hosting of your site.

      If you would like to connect your own domain to your Wix site, you will need to upgrade your site and purchase your own a domain. To learn how to connect a domain purchased from another domain host, click here.

       

      Note: Your can purchase your domain directly from Wix!
      Click here and follow the instructions.

      Dina-Wix Team.

    Hello, I want to make a site with Wix but I wouldn't like it to be ever listed at the Explore page. Is that possible and if yes how will I prevent it?

      Hi,

      The sites under "Explore" are sample sites.

      Your site will not be appearing under it.

    Can I create a website here and export it to another hosting site?

    I bought my site from another hosting site and their web builder is not as user friendly as wix (which a friend recommended) but I am not sure that now that I have finished my site on wix, will I be able to pass it to my host?

      Hi,

      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. 
      Your Wix sites will not work if they are not connected to Wix.
       
      Regarding a site as the one you describe in your second post,I have no knowledge of ny such site.
       
       
      If you require any further assistance, feel free to contact us again.

    Hi unholyjobs,

    I checked your account associated with username: unholyjobs , there is no document under this account.

    Please follow these steps: Go to Wix.com -> My Account -> Click "Manage and Edit Site" next to the site you would like to delete -> Click "Delete" on the right side of the page.

    I haven't granted anyone to use my adult site on Wix. So how do I get a copy of my site removed?

    Hi  julieungson

     

    The Wix images, in Add -> Image -> Change Image -> Images , are royalty free photos for your convenience. You can use any of these photos without breaking any international copyright laws. Be careful with images that you choose from external URL's. These images are not owned by Wix so you will have to contact the author for permission to use in your site.
    For more information on images, click here .

    Hi,

     

    This is my first time creating a website. I am doing a real estate type of website and I have a concern. I used one of your templates and edit some of the components. My problem is I am not sure if I can borrow some of the pictures in the template since I still don't have any pictures available at  a moment. Is it okay to temporarily use those pictures since I don't have pictures available?

    Wix chose to no longer support the embedding of Wix websites. It's not just on IMVU.
