      Hey,

       

      The Wix design platform is totally free for any user.

      We do have a premium offer for a small fee that enables our users to get more storage and bandwidth if they need it, the option to remove the Wix tags, and the option to connect their Wix design to their own domain name.
      You can find out more about it here .
      For the Wix Premium Learning Center, click here.

      If you don’t need any of these options then you can use it for free as much as you like.

       

      Let us know if you have anymore questions.

      Wix guarantees that your site will be crawled by search engines. It can take between 1 to 3 months for your site to appear in search engine results.
       

       In order for your site to be visible to search engines, make sure that it is published and that the Allow search engines to find my site toggle in the Settings > SEO (Google) section is enabled (green).
       

      Note: Your site being visible to search engines does not guarantee higher ranking in search results. In order to improve your ranking, we encourage you to follow the basic initial steps provided here.

      Hey,

      

      Please be aware that it can take anywhere from 1 – 3 months for your site to be crawled and indexed in order to appear in search engines such as Google or Yahoo. This waiting period is the same for all websites, not just those created using Wix.

       

      To see if Google has indexed your website, as well as the last time this happened i.e. to see a cached version of your website, enter your website’s URL with the word cache: before it in the Google search. For example: cache:www.mydomain.com If your website comes up, this means Google has already indexed it.

       

      Remember, if your website has not been crawled and it has been less than 3 months since publishing, don’t worry – give it a little time and try again.

      Alternatively, you can help speed up this process by submitting your website to search engines directly. Use the following links to submit your site to:

       

      Google

      Bing

       

      Wix guarantees that all of the text and meta tags on your site are being scanned by search engines, however we cannot guarantee that Google will choose to assign your website a high rank, this part is up to you.

       

      Make sure that your websites content has been optimized in accordance with the advice offered in our SEO Learning Center. We also recommend that you use the SEO Wizard & Monitoring tool for a more in depth analysis of your site’s SEO.

       

      If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

      Please clear your browser's cache. You can find step by step instructions here.
       

      As for your second issue regarding tabs, I am not sure what you mean. Please elaborate so that we can further assist you.

    I just recently published my site (jessicamcrory.com) and I had a domain name from EasyDN's. Every time i would refresh the page it would show the easyDN website holding the spot, but I tried to refresh a tiny bit ago and every time i type in my web address, it changes it to www.www.jessicamcrory.com

    Anyone have any advice or insight on this situation?

    Also, does anyone know when my sight might go live?

    Please and thank you!

      You mentioned earlier you are trying to visit:

      That is not your site's address, your site address is:

      http://jarradandmilli.wix.com/ourwedding

       

      Is this the web address you are trying to visit?

      The .pdf you mentioned was a screen shot of the message that comes up on google when I try to access the web address above.

      I have tried on 5 different computers and other devices and none of them can access it. I have followed all of the instructions I have found to flush the dsn and delete history, cookies, etc but nothing is fixing it.

      Hi,

       

      Really sorry about this, I'm afraid as the site is pulling up properly on our end (I can also see it online) it's very hard for us to check what is the issue causing this on your end.

       

       

      Have you tried to access the site with a computer using a different internet connection (using another wireless nearby, at a friend etc)?

      Hi,

       

      Please note that your website is indeed published and connected to your domain, the issue is that you have not changed your domain NS right.

       

      Please follow the step-by-step instructions on this page, or simply contact your domain hosting company with the following:

      Dear {name of domain registrar (eg, Godaddy)},

      My name is {your name} and I purchased the following domain from you: {your domain URL ( eg, www.yourname.com)}.
      I have built a site on Wix.com. Please connect my domain to their name servers- NS1.WIX.COM-IP address 
      216.139.213.90 and NS2.WIX.COM-IP address 95.211.144.195 .

      Thank you,

      {your name}

       

       

      Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

    • Eyal Wix Team

      Replied by Eyal June 3, 2014

      Hey mgiarrussophoto,

       

      Your pointing configuration in your registrar (not Wix, but your actual domain host) is incorrect.
      To fix this, please follow the instructions here

      Advanced: See the DNS records for this domain

       

      If you've already made the necessary changes for your domain to point to Wix, please note that your domain is going through a process called domain propagation. Domain propagation is the process of your registrar handing off the changes of your domain to root DNS servers, ISPs acquire records from the root servers, ISPs to other ISPs and so on until you see the changes reflect on your computer with your internet service provider.

       

      Please note that for all of the changes to take effect can take up to 72 hours from the moment you received the email form your domain hosting company. 

       

      If you require further assistance, please let us know!

      Thank you,

      Eyal, Wix Customer Support Team

      No Eyal, this is not working, it's set up I do not understand this, is there not a representative to assist in this?  The domain was purchased through wix no?  or does one to be purchased?  This is confusing?  My friend has a site through you and did not go through this why am I?

      Who can walk me through this?  I went and did check i put in the numbers where it is supposed to be and still not connecting.  Who can go in and FIX this?

      According to the Whois domain records the domain is registered with dreamhost, you will need to contact them in order to configure the DNS records to direct to your Wix site.
