Currently, it is not possible to use special characters in your domain name. This feature requires IDN (international domain names) support which is not available at this time. You can vote for this feature in this FAQ.

Note: Use this encoder to translate your domain. You can add the "translated" domain to Wix instead of the original domain name. For example, the domain www.exâmple.com, will be translated to www.xn--exmple-xta.com

    Special characters

    Can Wix become more culturally competent/sensitive and allow special characters to name one's domain?

    Thank you!! :)

    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 

      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.
