Yes, you can connect up to three domain names (URLs) to one Wix site through the Wix domain manager.
 

In order to connect an secondary domain to your current domain, please make sure to add the new domain to your account as well (use the already have a domain link). Once both domains are listed in your domain manager, please follow these instructions:
 

Step 1: Decide which domain address is your primary one ( www.exampledomain.com).  The other domain address ( www.exampledomain2.com) will be your secondary.

Step 2: Connect your primary domain to your Wix site.

Step 3: Once you have connected your primary domain to your Wix site, from the top menu, hover over Subscriptions > click Domains > next to your secondary domain, click Manage.

From Domain Summary, under Domain Connects To, click Change >  from the pop-up window, select To another domain name > choose your primary domain from the drop down menu > click Save.

 

Your domain name is now redirected! You will be able to see this under the Domain Summary. Please make sure you click the Check Connection button in the Domain Summary section to verify that the connection was successful.

 

To connect a third domain, repeat Step 3, using your third domain name.

 

Note: Please allow 24 hours for the redirection to propagate before your secondary domain will redirect to your primary domain. For the first 24 hours, the website will be available under two domain names (both the primary and secondary domain). After 24 hours, when typing the secondary domain name, the address in the browser's address bar will change to your primary domain name.

 

Note: If your primary domain name is not connected to Wix correctly, the redirection will not work. You will receive an error message. In this case, go back and make sure that your primary domain is connected properly.

 
Note: You can add up to 3 external domains to your account per premium plan, however there is no limitation on the number of domains that can be redirected to a specific site.
There is no limit on domains that are hosted by Wix.

    I was able to add one additional domain but when I add the second I receive this message: "We’re unable to redirect your site. It may be that your primary domain is not connected to Wix. Please follow the instructions to connect your primary domain."

    My primary domain is connected to a Wix site and the second domain works after selecting the primary from the dropdown. This third one does not. Any thoughts?

    Moving everything into Wix

    Greetings!

     

    I have a .net domain and a .com domain with another provider. I want to bring everything into wix so I pay one subscription for hosting the website and all domain names. How best to proceed please? I assume I give notice to the other providers to cancel the domains I hold with them?

    How do I connect a second domain to a page WITHIN the website and not the homepage?  I want that

    particular domain to go directly to my blog page on my wix website.  Thanks.

      Hi,

      Subdomains are used to connect the same domain to resources on two different servers. For example, if you have a domain - www.domainexample.com - pointed to your Wix site, you may also want to create a subdomain - blog.yourdomain.com - which would point to where your blog is hosted.

      To add a subdomain: Sign in to your Wix account > from the menu at the top, hover over Subscriptions > click Domains > click Use a Domain You Already Own > click Connect your domain to Wix but keep your current registrar.

      Under Connecting your own domain, fill in the subdomain information, select the relevant site and select your registrar  > click Next.

       

      Once you have added the subdomain to your account, you will need to add the following DNS records for the primary domain.

      A (Host) record for examplesubdomain.mydomain.com

      CNAME (Aliases) record www.examplesubdomain.mydomain.com

      CNAME (Aliases) record for m.examplesubdomain.mydomain.com

       

      To add DNS records: Under My Domains, next to the relevant domain, click Manage.

      Under Domain Summary, select the Advanced tab > next to DNS Records, click Manage > add or edit your records according to your requirements.

       

      For detailed information on connecting a subdomain, click here.

    Link new domain to my existing website

    I have a live website.  I recently purchased another domain for my new store.  I want people to be able to enter my new domain and it directs them to my current live website.  Even more specifically to a certain page on my live website.  How do I do this?

      Hi,

      Please note that it is not possible to direct someone to a specific page. You can however add the "old" domain to the new one, as instructed in the best reply above.

    Hi All,

    I have found myself a quite unlucky situation: I would like to have two domains, a .com and a .hu one. The .com one is occupied so I have to buy it from the owner. After that, should I wait for 60 days to connect it to my Wix website? The .hu domain is free, but Wix does not register .hu domains (or do you?). So it seems I have to register it at a different company which is fine, but should I wait again 60 days to connect it to my Wix site?

    Thanks,

    Tamas

      Hey,

       

      Please note that the "60 days old" requirement is for transferring domain to Wix, meaning that Wix would become your new domain host.

      Please note that currently, you can transfer domains with the following extensions: .com, .org, .net, .biz. and .info (however you can connect any domain you own).

       

      So you can connect your two domains using DNS (they will remain with your other domain host and will simply be connected to your Wix account). If you would like you could transfer your .com domain to Wix.

       

      Let us know if you have any questions. 

      Kosta, Customer Solutions.

      Okay, so I just have to buy the .com domain from the recent owner and host it anywhere but not on Wix, and I can connect it to my Wix webpage. And I can register the .hu domain name as well anywhere and connect it to my Wix page. Is that right? What will be the original domain name of my Wix site? Can I hide that?

    • Kosta Wix Team

      Hey,

       

      Yes, you are right indeed you can purchase any domain name elsewhere and connect it to your Wix account.

      Click here for more information and instructions. 

       

      A free Wix URL is made of username.wix.com/sitename, it will be hidden once you connect you own domain.

    Hello,

    I hope this isn't too confusing, but I currently have a domain name ending in .aero. If i purchase a domain name through WIX, can I still link the .aero domain name so that way if people type it into the address bar, or search bar, the new WIX site will pull up, yet the address than changes to the new domain name when the website is loaded?

    Thank you
