    Hey,

    I want to link my wix-web design to a dutch (.nl) domain.

    Is this possible?  

    How does this work?

     

    ps. this domain (.nl) is not supported by wix.com premium.

    we already have an existing website with this domain name.

    we want to use the wix design for our existing website.

     

    All the best,

      Hey bgori75,

       

      Your pointing configuration in your registrar (not Wix, but your actual domain host) is incorrect as you can also see in this third party domain tool.
      To fix this, please follow the instructions here

      Advanced: See the DNS records for this domain

    my question is, will i be able to connect my website that i designed in Wix to Educause domain?

      Hey,

       

      Yes, you can connect your .edu domain to your Wix website. But before that, you shoud purchase it from another hosts, once we do not offer domains .edu.

       

      After that, please follow the instructions on this topic´s Best Reply.

       

      If you need further assistance, do not hesitate to contact us.
