I have an existing domain name outside of wix. I would like to build another site using wix and transfer or connect the domain name from the old site to wix's new site. Currently I rank top of the google search for my site. Will this be affected when i move over to wix? Will the answer be different depending on whether I "transfer" or "connect" ?

I need to do just the opposite of what this article says. Instead of connecting an outside domain to my Wix domain, I'd like to connect my wix to an outside domain without transferring the domain to an outside host. So basically I'd like my Wix domain to route traffic to another domain I own that is not hosted by Wix. Is this possible... can this be done?

Unaware that distaffsingers.org could not be transferred. In fact, I thought the opposite. Are you telling me that in order to have a website with Wix.com, we need to change the name of our website to the Wix.com designated name?

I tried to follow directions to publish and inadvertently hit the connect button. Our non-profit already has a domain name which we wish to keep. When I tried to transfer, I received the message- Domain Unavailable to Transfer - Domain transfer request not available from your registrar. I have been told the domain name is unlocked, the WhoIs disabled, and have received an authorization number. I need to reverse the connect instruction and then transfer the domain name.
Replied by shirleysega1 June 25, 2014Connecting Vs. Transferring domain - which is preferable, if any?
I would like to connect a domain name I already own to my wix website.
What would be the difference between connecting my domain to wix but keeping my current registrar and transferring my domain to wix from the current registrar?
Are there advantages in transferring my domain to wix in terms of costs , maintenance or support?
Further to this, my current web site (not a wix web site) is hosted at a third party firm. Now that I’m connecting my domain to a wix web site, I will no longer need hosting services from a third party – is this correct?

Right I really don't know what I'm doing now.... (not good with all this stuff tbh).
I have published my site, paid for premium, now i want my website under the name I purchased i while ago from fasthosts. I scared about losing all the work i have done building the site.
What do I do? Please help and talk a stupid person through the process :)

Hi, I just purchased a Premium package and also changed the DNS at GoDaddy where my domain name is, but I think I made a mistake by transferring my domain name to WIX instead. That is NOT what I want to do and locked my domain name at GoDaddy. Can you please check for me what's the situation? I need this to be corrected ASAP.
Thank you very much,
