    I just upgraded my wix site.  I have a domain and hosting on Network Solutions.  The instructions on wix to transfer the DNS seem to be old screen shots as everything looks completely different once you get past the 1st screen!  Now I have no clue how to change.  Also, I want to keep the NS email, if i change the DNS serves to ns1.wix.com and ns2.wix.com  I now find out the email wont work.   Anyone know what to do?

    Sorry.  None of this works for me.  I have completed the site, published it, upgraded my account to Premium and gone through the processes of sending an email in recommended form to the authority from whom I purchased the domain name.  Today I received an email saying that they cannot respond to my request because they do not provide hosting services and I will have to go to  the registrar or re seller who registered the domain name.  This is all ridiculously confusing to me and I am frankly over it.  I need to know, in plain English language, what I have to do to have my site published with the address huntermediationservices.com.au  Are you able to assist?

    Hello,

    We own a Canadian domain (.ca) and purchased it from a local provider.

    We prefer to use the Wix editor and templates and want to redirect our domain to a newly designed Wix site.

    What information would we need to provide the host of our domain in order to do this?

     

    Thanks

    Chris

    Site not published

    Hi, 

    I connected my site on Tuesday morning to my domain which is with an external host, and published it, but it's still not appearing at that web address. Can you help?

      Hi,

       

      Your domain is not connected right.

      Your pointing configuration in your registrar (not Wix, but your actual domain host) is incorrect. If your registrar is Godaddy click here, otherwise here.

       

      We are here should you require any further assistance.

    We have our domain registered at Domains4less.com. I have followed your video instructions and in my registrar's name server settings I have set these to ns1.wix.com and ns2.wix.com. However, the boxes for IP address have not auto-filled and using those NS settings I get a "site not found" error when attempting to load the site.

    Please can you advise the correct IP settings for nameservers 1, 2 and 3.

      Hi,

      I have visited your domain and I see it is correctly directed to your Wix site. Your site works perfectly!



      If you are still having trouble viewing your site, please try doing the following:

      1) Go here and click on "Delete all sites". Then clear your browser's cache.

      For step-by-step instructions about how to clear your browser's cache, please follow this link.
      You can also find a video tutorial here.

      2) Try to Flush your DNS. For detailed instructions on how to do so please go here.

      3) Please go to the Windows start menu->click on 'run'-> select the first option: 'Run'-> type: 'ping yourdomain.com'->A window will pop with an IP address. Please run this test from several computers.

      For Mac users: Go to ‘Application’ then open ‘Terminal’ and type: 'ping yourdomain.com'->A window will pop with an IP address. Please run this test from several computers.

      -If you receive an IP address on your computer other than the IP you see here and you see this IP from other computers please contact an IT expert in your area for further troubleshooting.

      -If you receive a different IP than the IP you see here from multiple locations, please send it to us in order for us to check it.

      Best, Ritti

    I have tried twice to connect my domain to my wix site and have waited more than 72 hours, but it is not connected.  Can you tell why?

      Hi,

       

      Please note that your domain divorcetoolkit.org is not properly connected to Wix as your pointing configuration in your registrar (not Wix, but your actual domain host) is incorrect. To fix this, please follow the step by step instructions here.
