If you purchased a domain from a different domain hosting company, you can connect it to your Wix site by following the instructions here.
Please note that although the Wix platform is absolutely free, connecting your domain to your Wix creation is a premium feature and therefore you'll need to upgrade your site to one of the supporting packages. You'll find all the details (features, prices…) here.
Once you have upgraded, we recommend connecting your domain name using Wix’s name servers. When connecting a domain to your Wix site with our nameservers, the domain stays at your hosting company and connects to the Wix servers NS1.WIX.COM and NS2.WIX.COM. This method transfers control of your domain records to Wix. These records can be controlled via the Domain Manager of your Wix account by you! This will also allow your mobile site to be automatically associated with your domain!
In order to do so simply send your domain hosting company the following message: “I have built a site on Wix.com. Please connect my domain to their name servers- NS1.WIX.COM-IP address 184.108.40.206 and NS2.WIX.COM-IP address 220.127.116.11” .
For more information about this option please follow this link.
After following these steps, please allow up to 72 hours for changes to get updated (propagate). If you are still having domain connection problems, try going through the troubleshooter here.
I hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any further questions.Tali, Wix Team
