    Hey there, might be stupid question, but would really appreciate some help. I am looking and reading different hints and tricks, but couldn't find anything that would fix it. So here goes the epic story:

    The site is on Wix and domain on GoDaddy. I have changed the name servers in my GoDaddy account as I have found it stated on your site. Further more earlier we had two "alias" email addresses, ending up with the company's domain name (@solbuggys.com). That email addresses were linked to Live (@outlook.com) email; one of the alias was only setup for receiving, the other one for sending and receiving.

    Since I have changed the name servers, the aliases don't work anymore (sending or receiving). I have found here an article how to link the Live email address to the Wix name servers, however that isn't working either as the MSN page opens up and doesn't offer anymore the link that would take me further to fix the email settings.

    If the Live (Microsoft) did the trick mentioned just above to sell more of their Office 365, then it is clear I cannot do anything. But as I was having this already setup, I understood from the MSN page, I should be able to keep it.

    If this really doesn't work out, would you please advise if I can make on Gmail (free one) the aliases as now and then connect the email to Wix? And if yes, how does that go.

    Thank you a ton!

      Hi Barry,

      Thanks for contacting Wix support.

      To change your email address you click on your username (login) > Account Settings > on the top left you will see "Update your username or email".

      Changing the email does not affect your site URL, and there's no need to change the site address.


      All the best,

    I just achieved an email account from Godaddy and I'm not able to connect it to my site and the informations I found at support didn't help me too much. Can you tell me what do I have to do to connect the email account to my domain?

      Hi 365romania,

      Thank you for contacting Wix support!

      In order to get your personalized email account up and running, please ask your email hosting company what records need to be added and then update them in the Domain Manager within your Wix account.You can also forward us their reply by posting on this thread and we will be happy to add the records for you. 

      In the Domain Manager, you can add MX records, A records, CNAME records and TXT records.

      For more info about how to update these records, follow this link.

      Hi there,

      Well, your answer doesn't help me at all. And I'll show you why. Let's have a look at what Godaddy asks me to do to update CNAME records and after that what says the support information from your site about CNAME. It's not the same thing. And please don't ask me to email them, because they don't answer to any email.:

      Please note that these records should be added according to the guidelines you saw.

      Let us know where exactly did you experience difficulties inserting the records.


      If you are still unable to insert them please copy and paste the record details so we'll be able to copy them into your account.

      That's all that I received from Godaddy. I'm not familiar with that kind of stuff, I assume it's not very difficult, but for me it really is. Thanks a lot and please let me know when it's done.

    I have a domain and email with 123-reg. My mailbox stopped working and they told me 
    its because I had changed the name servers to Wix. I was told to change it back to 123-reg and contact you to add the 123-reg MX records on my behalf.

      Hello adamdavies73,

      Thank you for contacting Wix support.

      You have changed your nameservers to 123-reg and by doing so you have unlinked your site to Wix.

      When connecting a domain to your Wix site with our nameservers, the domain stays at your hosting company and connects to the Wix servers NS1.WIX.COM and NS2.WIX.COM.

      This method transfers control of your domain records to Wix. These records can be controlled via Domain Manager of your Wix account by you!

      This will also allow your mobile site to be automatically associated with your domain!

      To connect your domain to our name servers:

      Send your domain hosting company the following message:
      I have built a site on Wix.com. Please connect my domain to their name servers- NS1.WIX.COM (IP address and NS2.WIX.COM (IP address

      After sending your message, please allow up to 72 hours for changes to get updated (propagate).

      As for your MX records ,an MX record, or mail exchange record, is used to map a domain name to a list of message transfer agents for that domain. You can add or update MX records from the Domains page of your Wix account.

      To add or update MX records: Sign in to your Wix account > from the top menu, hover over Subscriptions > click Domains > under My Domains, next to the relevant domain, click Manage.

      At the bottom of Domain Summary, next to Email (MX Records):, click Add > select I have an email provider > from the drop down menu, choose Other > add or update the MX records > click Save.

      The MX records you need to add are:


      If you are having problems connecting with these MX records please mail your mail provider and ask them for the MX records and notify us so we can change it. At the moment we cannot change your records because you are not linked to our nameservers.

      Note: Use lowercase letters only when entering your MX records.

      For further information on adding or updating MX records, click here.

      Kind regards, Amit

    I am really struggling setting up my email address from a Crazy Domain site. I have received the detail below from Crazy Domains; can you see if I have entered this correctly in my area as I don't believe it is working.

    Further I do not know what mail server and user name I need to set up my Apple mailboxes. 

    I am so confused!

    Thank you for your email.

    Please do make or add the following DNS settings below at wix so that your email will work.

    Type: MX
    Host: lovethatshot.com.au.
    Target: mail.lovethatshot.com.au

    Type: A record
