      Hi Andrei,

       

       

      Do you wish to transfer your domain away from Wix?

       

      If you have purchased a domain from Wix, it is possible to transfer it to another domain host, if necessary.

      To transfer a Wix domain: Sign in to your Wix account > from the top menu, hover over Subscriptions > click Domains > click Manage next to the relevant domain.

      Under Domain Summary, click the Advanced tab > on the right, click Transfer away from Wix > click Send.

       

      An email code will be sent to your email address. This code should be forwarded to your new domain host.

       

      Note: In accordance with ICANN rules, you will only be able to transfer your domain 60 days after purchasing it from Wix.

       

      Note: If you were referring to a non-Wix Domain which you connected to your Wix site, you will need to contact your domain host for assistance with disconnecting your domain from Wix.

       

      For further information on transferring your domain, click here or watch the video below!

       


      Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

      Many thanks, Barrios

      I have done the above, and reinstalled web browsers but still no luck, the same message appears.  It happens on every PC in the office connected to the internet.  When our customers search they are able to see our website and also I can see it on my iPhone on 3G.

      Hi,

       

      That's good news. According to the information you've provided, this means there might be something faulty with your office's internet connection, or maybe there is a firewall installed there that is blocking your site.

       

      Please follow these instructions in order to try and troubleshoot the issue.

      Hey Bill

      You can connect the domain to your Wix site using name servers.

       

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

       
      1) Firstly you must go to Subscriptions > Domains) and add your domain. 
      For more information, please click here.
      2) Please contact your domain host and ask them to connect your domain via 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’s not connected correctly.
      You can troubleshoot your domain here.
       
      Note: Please make sure to firstly add your domain name under the Wix domain manager

    Dear Wix,

    I'm currently using Dot5Hosting to host my website and I bought my domain from them as well. I created an account with wix to create a new website and I still working on it.

    My question is: Once I'm done creating my wix website how can I make it work with my domain name?

    Please help I'm really confuse and I don't want to waste my time working on my wix site if I'm not going to be able to make it work.

    Waiting for your help

      Hi Val!

       

      What you could do, is to maintain your existing domain subscription and simply have it point to your Wix site! This means that you'll continue to pay your current host for the domain hosting and they'll control your domain records, but the domain will be directing your viewers to your Wix site.

       

      To connect your Wix site to your domain, you will need to upgrade to one of the following premium plans:

       

      - Connect Domain Plan (this plan does not remove Wix ads)
      - Combo Plan
      - Unlimited Plan
      - eCommerce Plan

       

      To learn more about our premium plans and what they include, please click here.


      If you have already purchased a domain from another hosting company, click here to learn how to connect it to your Wix site.

       

      In order to complete the process, you will need to ask your current hosting company (the company you purchased your domain name from), to point your domain to the Wix server using the following CNAMES: ns1.wix.com & ns2.wix.com.

       

      I hope this helps! Please feel free to contact us again for any future assistance!

      Hi!

       

      I can see that you have properly assigned your domain to your Premium site, however, the pointing configuration with your registrar isn't updated with the Wix name servers.

       

      In order to complete the domain connection process, please ask your hosting company (where you purchased your domain name from) to point your domain to the Wix server using the following cnames:

       

      ns1.wix.com

      ns2.wix.com

       

      Note that once they have made the changes, the domain can take 72 hours to fully propagate.

       

      Let us know if you require any further assistance!

    Dear Wix team,

    I've got the Google domain www.emporio-castelo.com, but it is not connecting to my Wix site. I'm a layman on this matter and I don't know what to do. Please help me.

    Thank you.

      Hi,

       

      I checked your domain conenction and it appears that 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 further assistance.

    Go Daddy Domain

    So I'm sure this has been covered before. I made my free wix site just the way I want. I went to Go Daddy and purchased the domain I want. I followed all instructions to connect them listed here (http://www.wix.com/support/main/html5/domains/connecting-domains-hosted-elsewhere/connecting-your-godaddy-domain-name-servers#). Now it tells me I have to wait 60 days or pay a monthly fee to Wix (which would give me a domain for much more than Go Daddy)??? The 60 day wait is unacceptable from a business aspect. I've already bought promotional materials to advertise the new domain. Makes the Wix site worthless. Is there a way around this or should I just go elsewhere?

      Hi richlipski,

      Thanks for contacting us.

      The 60 days restriction applies for the case that you want to transfer your domain to Wix.

      However, you can connect your domain to Wix following the instructions in the best reply of this thread. 

      Please check it and if you have any doubts don't hesitate to come back to us.

      Hey Hadi

      Indeed, connecting a domain to a Wix site requires an upgrade to a premium plan.

      I can see that you have upgraded today and your site is up and running- which is great!

      Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Please help. My domain name isn't working with my Wix site

    Good day, I am in need of some assistance. I have followed all the instructions I could but I've seem to have missed a step. I have purchased a domain: stumpstandards.com (through Blue host) back in grad school and would still like to use it.

    Attached is my current "zone editor" page. Can you spot the issue? I hope so. Ive waited the necessary72 hours and really cant afford to wait much longer.
