Currently this isn't possible as this requires support of the IDN (international domain names) which we do not support for now.


You can however add the "translated" domain to Wix instead of the original domain name.
If your domain is www.exâmple.com , the translated domain will be
www.xn--exmple-xta.com 


You can use this encoder to translate your domain.

    Special Domain name

    I have a domain name currently. I was wondering how I can get a special domain name. For example, if my domain name is www.domain.com, how do I get this domain name: www.art.domain.com or www.sports.domain.com? Does Wix support this?

    hi do you support .com.ph domains?

    • Tali Wix Team

      Replied by Tali June 4, 2014

      Even though Wix sells domains, we do  not offer a .com.ph extension.
      You can, however, purchase your domain elsewhere and easily connect it to your Wix creation.

      Note that connecting a domain to your Wix creation is a premium feature and therefore you will first need to upgrade your site. You will find information on our different packages 
      here.

      Once you upgrade follow the instructions here 
      to connect a domain.

      Tali, Wix Team

      If you now have a domain name with support characters, you can buy it from Wix by following the instructions on this page, or from any other registrar if you wish.

     I couldn't use it  "Domain forwarding". 

     

    So, Is there other solution to connected other web address for domain forwarding?

    If you have no way, i wanna transfer "the own grants for my domain" to my Whois server account.

    thankyou.

      Hey,

       

      I am sorry for the confusion but I am not sure what you are trying to accomplish, please elaborate more about what you are trying to do and where in the process are you getting stuck.

      Please note that if you would like to transfer your domain you have to wait 60 days from the day of the purchase.

       

      If one of your domains was purchased from Wix, you can connect two domain names (URLs) to your Wix site in the Wix Domain Manager by redirecting the domain name that was purchased from Wix to your primary domain.

      If all of your domains are from other hosts, you can only connect one domain in the Wix domain manager, but you can redirect your other domains to the connected domain by contacting your host.

      For detailed instructions on both of these methods, click here and scroll down to the "Can I connect more than one domain to the same Wix site?" question.

      What is the difference between “Using the Wix Name Servers"  & "Redirecting a Domain" to Wix?
      Often, the place where we buy our domain names (URLs) is NOT the same place as where we design and store our website.

      When connecting your domain to your Wix site using name servers, the domain name stays at your hosting company and connects to the Wix servers. Connecting to our name servers transfers control of your domain records to Wix.
      Redirecting your domain, also know as domain forwarding or domain transfer, would mean that you transfer the domain name from your current registrar to another one. For example, Wix would take over hosting your domain name as well as your website. Wix does not offer this service.

       

      Let us know should you require further assistance.

       

      All the best, Dean - Wix Team
