    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!

      Hi,

       

      I can see that the Wix account that you are currently using (email address topnotchbeautysupplies@yahoo.com) is a Free account. If you would like to connect your domain to your Wix site under this account, you will first need to upgrade this site with one of our premium plans as connecting a domain to a Wix site is a premium feature. For information about our plans, click here.

       

      Once your site is upgraded, click here for step by step instructions on how to connect your domain to your Wix site.

       

      If you are still unable to properly connect your domain to Wix, please provide us with the domain name and we will be happy to further assist.

    Hi,

    I have been trying to set up (via pointing method, and yes I am aware that this is not preferred) and verify that my website [wctedance.com] - is there any way you could take a look and see what I am missing, if anything?

    Thank you!

    • shayb7 Wix Team

      Replied by shayb7 5 days ago

      Hi,

       

      I can see that your domain wctedance.com is properly connected to Wix using the Pointing method. I have also accessed your Wix site using this domain and was able to view it live properly. Have a look at the screenshot below: 

      Please note that it may take up to 72 hours for the changes to fully propagate for all locations. If 72 hours have passed and the issue persists, please clear your browser's cache and check again. You can find step by step instructions here.

       

      If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

      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!

      Hi,

      I checked your domain connection and I saw your domain: thecompassionatekitchen.com.au is properly pointing to Wix name servers.

      Your site loads perfectly from my end.

      If you still experiencing difficulties to load the site, please clear your browser cache.

    Hi, I am trying to connect my domain www.horncastle.com.au using Wix as the name server, however when I check it tells me "unknown host", and now my site is not working at all. As I'm paying for Google advertising I'm concerned about too much downtime, but I'm not sure what to do next to resolve this issue.

    Any help would be much appreciated!
