      Hi,


      Thank you for contacting us.

       

      Please note I checked your domain records and it seems you managed to add the records correctly. I also checked your actual domain and it redirects correctly to your new site.

       

      Do you require further assistance?

    Hi Guys,

     

    I have just registered a .co.za domain name but would like to keep wix as my hosting company.

    The company that registered my domain say that I NEED an IP address from Wix so they can point it to the right place.

    How can I get that so I can sort this out?

     

    Alternatively, is it possible for me to have the company here host everything instead but keep my wix website? (I like the template & the work I have already done on it!!)

    I'm a complete tech noob so, please explain in simple language.

     

    Many thanks,

    Leanda

      Hi Leanda,

      We will host your WIX site weather you connect to us via IP or Name servers.

      We strongly recommend to connect to us via Name servers.

      Wix's name servers are:

      NS1.WIX.COM (IP address 216.139.213.90)

      NS2.WIX.COM (IP address 95.211.144.195)
       

      When connecting your domain to Wix's name servers there are two important steps that you must complete.
       

      1. Make sure that you have added the domain in your Wix account.
      For more information, please click here.
       
      2. Contact your domain host and ask them to connect your domain to Wix's the name servers (ns1.wix.com & ns2.wix.com).
       
      Both of these steps are essential and the omission of either will result in a domain that is not properly connected.

       

      Best, Ritti

    Hi guys

    I am trying to redirect my domain (www.bujinkan-toradojo.com purchased with WIX) to www.bujinkantoradojo.com (purchased to Weebly).

    I tried changing the IP address in WIX but is not working (re-directed to 199.34.228.59)

    I made a website using Weebly and need to point my domain to their servers.  Can you set this up or walk me through the process of making these changes?  I need to change my A-Records for both "www" and my root domain. That's one record for www.mydomain.com pointing to 199.34.228.59. And one record for mydomain.com also pointing to 199.34.228.59. 


    If you need more info on these changes, please see:
     
    http://kb.weebly.com/domain-registrar.html
     
    Note that I want to keep using you as my domain registrar.  I am not requesting a transfer and do not have new name servers to provide you. 
     
    Thanks!

      Hi,

       

      When I try to visit your domain, it changes to www.www.trawell.se.

      This issue occurs when your domain is not pointing to Wix correctly, according to the instructions provided. 
       

      If your domain is managed elsewhere, and pointing to Wix using A records, please make sure that you have added the records according to our instructions here.

       

      Note: We do not recommend using the pointing method, rather we suggest pointing your domain's name servers to Wix's name servers (NS1.WIX.COM and NS2.WIX.COM).

       

      Note: Many Internet Service Providers (ISP) cache their DNS records and update them once every 3 days. Therefore if you have pointed to Wix using name servers within the last 72 hours, and you are still experiencing this issue, please allow the changes 72 hours to propagate before trying again. 

       

      If you have any questions, please let us know.

    I have been trying for 3 days now to link my domain (from freehosting.com) to my site here on wix.com. It is really giving me a headache! Wish the process was easier to link. Not the best computer tech, but even this puzzles my brain. Please help!
