    Dear Wix Support - I have recently upgraded my hosting plan with Godaddy, as it was expiring today. I have been asked by their support team to get files of the website and upload it on my local computer and link it to their hosting plan. I would appreciate if you can help me with the following files so I can get my hosting plan sorted out. Here is what they have mentioned: 

    First: Leave your DNS as it's set. So don't worry about DNS for email or nameservers for the GoDaddy site.

    Second: Contact WIX to see if you can get a copy of your site files. If you can move your site: Get the files from WIX and load them into your hosting plan. Preview the information to be sure it's showing correctly.

    If you cannot move your site files: Your site will be down until you can get it redesigned. If you think you can get those done quickly get back to us to confirm the nameservers your domain will need to use.

    Update your nameservers at your current registrar and then come to your GoDaddy account and be sure your DNS for the site and the emails through cPanel is set up. If you need time to redo your site keep the DNS as it is and use preview to be sure your site is looking how you want it before updating the nameservers.

    Third: While you are waiting to get the site moved or built you would access your emails the same way you have been. However, you need to update the passwords for the emails I recreated to use the password you use now. Once you change the DNS for cPanel emails you would access the emails through cPanel.

    You would need to work through getting the files you need downloaded to your local computer and then upload that information to your hosting plan. Once you have the files you need you can use the following link to FTP content to your hosting plan: Uploading Files to Your Website (FTP). You will want to use your hosting plan's IP address, instead of the domain, to link to your hosting plan.

      Hi,

      It is not possible to download a Wix site or any of its pages as the Editor needs to be in constant connection with our servers. As such, it is not possible to work offline or save site pages to your computer.
      You can use the "print screen" option to save your site pages to your computer, if necessary.
       

      Note: Wix does not support the exporting of files created using Wix to an external destination or host. All Wix creations are hosted on Wix's servers. The advantages of using Wix as your host include improvements to your site's loading time, search engine optimization and more.

       

      Also, please note that it is not possible to change the name servers of a domain name purchased from Wix. You may either transfer the domain away from Wix, or point the domain to a different IP address. 

      * If you have purchased a Wix domain, but have decided to transfer it away from Wix, you can do so easily by following the instructions here.
       

      * To point your domain to a different IP address, you will need to modify the domain's A records. You will need to contact your new host and request for the relevant IP address. For more information about how to edit your A records, click here.

      Please let us know should you require any further assistance.

    Issue: I recently did work on a site and made sure I saved repeatedly, but when I returned to it the following week, the updated designs were not available during the 'edit site' mode. I also looked into the History of the site yet nothing is present beyond May (2 months ago). I did these updates just last week (July).

    What happened and what can I do about it to prevent this mishap again?

    Question:

    In order to feel a bit safer, I want to Duplicate My Site, and then ultimately I desire to publish it as the original domain that I am intending it for. How do I do this?

    Thank you.

    How can I create a 2nd site using my 1st website as a template?

    We have multiple sites under the same brand umbrella and I'm trying to use the first site as a template because it already has all the right settings, colors, fonts, etc. Otherwise, I have to do a ton of work repeating the process over and over to get the Wix template to matchup to my sites. Is there a way to make my own website a template or copy elements from one site to another one? I have a few sites I need to make look like the first site I designed, but repeating the process of changing a Wix template into the same site settings I already created seems very redundant and wasteful of my time. Please help!

    Security, Backup and storage

    Dear WIX!

    First of all I would like to thank you for having this awesome website and giving people the opportunity to make beautiful websites.

    I have a question for you:

     

    How secure is the back up and storage..? I have used the last months making an awesome website and I have probably spent over 200 hours making it. So I was wondering, just so I can sleep at night, that my website is safe with you and the chance of loosing anything is so small I do not have to worry.. :)

     

    That's all!

    Thank you again,

    best regards

      You can easily transfer a Wix site from one account to another! This process will create a copy in the other account.
       

      1. Go to "My Account" -> click on "Manage & Edit Site" next to the relevant site.
      2. Under "Site Actions" on the right side, click on "More" -> "Transfer Site".
      3. Add all relevant information and follow the steps.
       

      You can also follow instructions here.

       

      Once the site is on her account she can upgrade it on her end.

    I had an experience that the site I used to use has only 7 days backup so it created a big problem to me once my site's down. I tried your "duplicate site" but some info are not there when compared with my original site (such as shipping cost, ordered history, & etc). Please advise if there's any backup procedures I can do to backup everyday's info? Thanks!
