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.

    How long does it take for Wix to allow domain transfers away from wix?

    Hi,

    I have a domain purchased from Wix and now I am transferring it to GoDaddy. How long does it take for Wix to allow the transfer to happen. Because at the moment GoDaddy says, waiting for your old domain registrar to confirm the transfer and that it may take up to 7 days!

      Hi nedaamiri,

       

      I can see that the domain is still with us.

       

      Please note that once you receive our code the process is rolling over to your target host. Be informed that this can take up to 7 business days.

      What do you mean none of my domains are registered at Wix? I have 4 domains that I use on Wix, so what do you mean by that my domains aren't registered at Wix? If they aren't registered at Wix, then where are they registered at?

      Hi,

      I checked your Wix account and I saw you connected 4 domains to your Wix sites however, these domains were not purchased through Wix but simply pointing to Wix name servers.

      You can find more information about your domains and who is your domains register in this link.

       

      To disconnect your domain from your Wix site, please ask your hosting company not to point your domain to the Wix IP address or disconnect it from the Wix Name Servers (NS1.WIX.COM and NS2.WIX.COM).

    Again, my screen when clicking on "advanced" does not show any link or wording for "transfer domain name away from wix". 

    Therefore, the posts on this thread do not help me at all.

      Hello,

       

      Please note that none of your domains is hosted by Wix, therefore you cannot transfer them away.

       

      Please elaborate what goal exactly are you trying to achieve, and we will be happy to assist.

      I want to transfer away innovativeaquatics.net 

      i wrote that in my post. the problem following the previous threads on this topic is that they show "transfer away from wix" on the advanced screen, whereas, my screen does not show that wording/link. 

      They are not the exact same screen and there is no option on "advanced" for me to transfer

      Hi,

       

      If I've understood correctly, innovativeaquatics.net isn't a Wix domain, it's registrar is Melbourne IT LTD (www.melbourneit.com.au). Should you wish to transfer your domain, you'll need to contact Melbourne IT.

       

      Please note the domain is pointing to Wix, and the records shown in your Manage Premium in your Wix account are just the Pointing configurations on Wix's side. The actual domain is hosted at Melbourne IT, as seen here.

       

      Should you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

      Hi,

       

      You are referring to the duration of a domain transfer to Wix?

      In general, it may take up to 24 hours for Wix to verify your domain transfer, once you approve the domain transfer It may take up to seven days for the Registry to approve your transfer.

    Hi,

    Yes you can. Please note that this has nothing to do with your premium account at WIX. You can still connect your domain to your WIX site also with your domain being hosted by hostgator.

    Please follow the instructions in the best reply.

    Best, Ritti
