A free Wix URL is made of username.wix.com/sitename. Changing your username and/or site name will change your free Wix URL.


To change your username: Sign in to your Wix account > click My Sites > hover over the user panel at the top right > click Account Settings > under User Name, enter your new username.

To change your site name: Sign in to your Wix account > click My Sites > next to the relevant site, click Manage Site > on the right, under Handy Shortcuts, click Show More > click Rename.

To change the free Wix URL to a domain name that you own, you will first need to upgrade to a premium plan that includes this feature. For more information and to purchase a plan, click here.

If you haven't yet purchased your own domain name, you can purchase one directly from Wix! To learn more about purchasing a domain from Wix, click here.


Note: If you sign up for a Yearly Combo, Unlimited or eCommerce plan, you will receive a voucher to get a domain free for a year! Click here to learn more.


If you were referring to changing your domain name to another domain that you own, this can be done from the Domains page.

To access this page: From the top menu, hover over Subscriptions > click Domains.

      Hello meteapart,

      Thank you for contacting Wix support. 

      It is not possible to modify a domain name once purchased. When you register a domain name you are reserving those letters or characters in that order. In order to use a different domain or a domain with a different spelling, you would need to register a new domain name.

      While it is not possible to cancel a domain purchase, you can easily prevent your misspelled domain name from renewing.


      To turn off the auto renewal: Sign in to your Wix account > from the top right of the page, hover over the user panel > click Billing & Payment.

      Under Domain Subscriptions, next to the relevant domain, click Manage > next to Next Payment, click Cancel payments > select No, I will renew the domain manually > click Save.

      For more information about connecting your domain click here .

      If you wish to change the name of your free Wix site you may  sign in to your Wix account > click My Sites > next to the relevant site, click Manage Site > on the right, under Handy Shortcuts, click Show More > click Rename.

      Feel free to contact us should you require any further assistance. 

      Kind regards, Amit

    I have tried to find my site online and the only way i can do this is by typing in atouchofcalm.wix.com/a-touch-of-calm

    Surely I dont have to type all this in. I thought it would just be atouchofcalm.wix.com

    Can you advise me please as I have spent a week doing my site and now I can't get on it without typing that long name in, which I find rather silly.

      Thanks, for the answer but when I want to change the site name they say it is to long!

      Hey luxoprintsite

      Sure- simply go to my account=>domains=>search and purchase the new domain.

      Then go back to my account=>domains=>new domain=>manage=>change site and connect it to the site.

      If you have purchased your a domain name from another domain registrar, you can either transfer your domain to Wix or connect your domain to Wix’s name servers.

      Note: Connecting your own domain is a premium feature.


      To connect your domain to Wix's name servers: Sign in to your Wix account > from the top menu, hover over Subscriptions > click Domains. Click Use a Domain You Already Own > click Connect your domain to Wix but keep your current registrar.
      Under Setup with Wix, enter your domain name and select the site that you want it connected to > click Next.
      Under Setup with Registrar > choose your domain host from the list.


      Now you will need to set up the connection with your domain registrar. For instructions for Various Domain Hosts, click one of the links below:

      Go Daddy

      Name Servers (Recommended method!)


      Network Solutions Name Servers (Recommended method!) Pointing
      CrazyDomains Name Servers (Recommended method!) Pointing
      Google Apps Name Servers (Recommended method!) Pointing
      123Reg.co.uk Name Servers (Recommended method!) Pointing
      1&1 Name Servers (Recommended method!) Pointing
      easyDNS Name Servers (Recommended method!) Pointing
      Yahoo! Name Servers (Recommended method!)
      123Reg.com Name Servers (Recommended method!)
      Other Domain Hosts Name Servers (Recommended method!)

      Note: The connection may take up to 72 hours to take effect.


      Note: It is also possible (although not recommended) to connect your domain via Pointing.


      For more information, please see the video below:

      Connecting a domain to your site is a premium feature, if your site is not yet upgraded please click here.

      If you do not have a domain you can buy one from Wix, click here to proceed.

    • Dean Wix Team

      Replied by Dean August 9, 2014



      Since you cancelled the Premium plan within less than 14 days from the date it was purchased, the plan was cancelled and you will be refunded.


      In order to connect the domain please purchase the plan once more and wait 14 days before canceling the auto renewal process.


      Let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.

      Your 'Connect Domain' plan is already cancelled and you will not be able to use if for your site. You have been refunded for the plan, as Dean has also mentioned. 

      To upgrade your site: Sign in to your Wix account > click My Sites > next to the relevant site, click Upgrade.


      You can find more information about how to upgrade and managing your premium account here.

      Hi Topaz,


      If you've tried changing your username and got the error you've mentioned, it means that the username is taken and you'll need to choose a different available user name, I'm afraid.

    My website name is username.wix.com/home


    So "home" is my site name.  I was wondering if I could make it so if people were to just write in "username.wix.com" it would forward to my site instead of coming up with an error website.  Thank you for your time.

      I'm afraid that is not possible.

      However, you can connect a personalized domain to your Wix site!


      If you don’t have a domain, click here in order to purchase a domain from wix.

      If you already have a wix domain, click here and follow the steps in order to connect it to your wix site.

      If you have a domain that you’ve purchased elsewhere, click here and follow the steps in order to connect it to your wix site.


      Please note that connecting your own domain to your wix site is a premium feature.

      See the information below about the different premium packages that are available for you. Each package contains different features and has a different price so make sure you choose the one that suits your needs best.

      Also, I've attached detailed instructions for performing an upgrade.


      To learn which premium plans wix offers, click here.

      For further information about each plan, click here.
