    I am trying to connect 2 non-Wix domains (from Intuit) to my Wix site.  I've been able to connect the primary site successfully, but am having trouble with the secondary domain.  From the online instructions, it looks like the secondary site should be pointed to the primary site's URL?  Is this correct?  And if so, how do I do this?  Thanks!

    Hi  edudaves,

    Please note: You may connect your own domain (for example www.mydomain.com). You will need to purchase a domain and upgrade your site to one of our Premium packages that allows for this service.

    I have built my site using the FREE version. I am trying to POINT and CONNECT my domain "davestill.ca" to my Wix account. I keep getting error messages which say I do not have A Records. I am looking at the Domain Manager from NETFIRMS the Registar, and EVERYTHING says WIX.COM. 

    Can a POINT to a FREE account or do I need BASIC?

    What are restrictions.?

    Yes you can!

    When connecting your domain to the Wix name servers there are two important steps that you must complete.
     
    1) Firstly you must go to your Wix Domain Manager (My Account > Manage Premium > 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

    I've checked your account and noticed that you haven't connected your domain to your wix document, that's the reason your free wix url comes up. 

    Please look at our Domain Portal for step by step instructions or check out the video below.


    Already connected your domain but having problems? Click here.

    Please also note that it might take up to 72 hours to be updated.
    For the Wix Premium Learning Center, click here.

    *You will have to purchase a Domain first. After that, go here and purchase an upgrade plan that lets you use your own domain.
    Please note that Wix is selling domains! Click here and follow the instructions.

    Thanks dinamiso,

    I have set the SEO fields, but I don't think that's the point.

    I am merely referring to the URL bar. Once typing "www.btscomponents.com" you will be directed to my site with WIX, but instead of simply showing my-domain it would show wix.com/my-domain . I don't necessarily want ppl to know that I am hosting my site with WIX, plus it keeps a kind of temporary feel to it like an ad for a minisite/landing page.

     

    Thanks

    Hi btscomponents,

     

    To change your website's tags, title, and description, open your Wix in the Editor and click Settings. In Settings, click the SEO tab and fill in the SEO fields: Site Title, Description and  Keywords. Once you have changed your title, keywords, and description be sure to hit Save.
     
    For more detailed instructions with screenshots, please follow this link: http://support.wix.com/index.php/The_Wix_Editor/Settings
     
    Hi  b_oneill  ,
     
    You may connect your own domain (for example www.mydomain.com). You will need to purchase a domain and upgrade your site to one of our Premium packages that allows for this service.
     
    If you purchased a domain from a different domain hosting company, you can connect it to your Wix site by following the instructions here: http://support.wix.com/index.php/Domain_Management/Name_Servers
    In order to complete the process 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
    • Please look at our Domain Portal for step by step instructions
