    okay, now I have a question... so I just purchased my domain name [danielleragland.com] and want to upgrade to Premium, but now I see I could've gotten a free domain for the first year had I waited and done the upgrade first. do I have any way of recouping the $24.85 I just spent? I'd rather buy the full year vs. paying monthly, but not if I wind up with a coupon for a 'free domain for a year' that I don't need. please advise me how to go from here... thanks!! :)

      You can either buy a monthly premium plan, they don't include vouchers including the voucher for the free domain for 1 year or alternatively get the yearly plan but either don't use that free domain voucher or use it and have a 2nd domain connected to your site.

    I am extremely new to this and have put together my first website in the editor. It says I have to upgrade first which I have no problem with. I wanted to do everything thru wix so here is where the confusion starts. I don't have a domain name so I went of wix to buy mine and it is available. It will cost me about 70 for 3 years..I went back to the upgrade packages and since I am just a 1 man operation I looked at the one for about 8.00 per month. again for 3 years but it says it comes with a free domain? Here is where I got confused. If I buy the hosting for 99.00 for 3 years do I also have to buy the domain name to connect to it for 67.88 for a total of about 170.00 for 3 years. Is this how it works or do I pay the 99.00 for the hosting and get the domain name I want for free? Now keep in mind that some of this might sound weird but Im not computer saavy and this is my very first try at this so be gentle with the comments. I just would like to get my website up asap and learn along the way.

    Thanks, Jim

      Dear Jim,

       

      Thank you for using Wix! 

       

      A free Wix site has a link in the format username.wix.com/sitename. If you want a link such as www.yourdomain.com, you will need to both purchase the domain address itself and a Wix premium upgrade.

       

      You can buy the monthly package, but this does not arrive with a free domain and so the domain will need to be purchased separately. You can also buy the annual Combo/Unlimited/eCommerce package and receive a free domain name for the first year.

       

      Here is some more information about our different Premium packages. Below you can see the details of each package and exactly what services you will receive with each.
      For the Wix Premium Learning Center, click here.

      There are four upgrade options:

      Connect Domain ($6.90/month) or for the yearly package $49:
      This package enables you to use your own domain that you have purchased from any domain registrar, but will not remove the wix ads.  You can store up to 500 MB, with 500 MB bandwidth.

      Combo Package ($10.95/month) or for the yearly package $99:
      This package includes connecting your domain and removing the Wix ads from your site. You can store up to 1 GB with 1 GB bandwidth.

      Unlimited Package ($15.95/month) or for the yearly package $149:
      This package includes connecting your domain and removing the Wix ads from your site. You can store up to 2.5 GB with unlimited bandwidth.

      eCommerce ($19.90/month) or for the yearly package $194:
      This package includes connecting your domain, removing the Wix ads from your site and using the eCommerce feature. You can store up to 2.5 GB with 5 GB bandwidth.

      You'll find all the details (features, prices…) here.
       

      You can also use the following coupons to receive a discount on the yearly Unlimited/eCommerce premium packages!

       


      I hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any further questions.

       

      Sincerely, Leah Wix Team

      Ok, so this dummy has one more question, I have already designed a webpages or I guess you would call it a website on WIX and it is ready to be published depending on which package I want. Since I am just starting out as a 1 person operation I need to be as cost effective as possible. Can you tell me how much it would cost for a 3yr contract using the 8.25 a month package and the cost of the new domain name for the same amount of time. Could I pay for these together on one screen or do I have to pay for them separate? This might be a lot of dumb questions but like I said, I know practically nothing about this and feel frustrated. I guess if I was 12 I could breeze right threw it the way kids are taught now days.

      Thanks you for the quick reply.

      Jim

      Dear Jim,

       

      No worries. Please note that the site can be published even before the upgrade and the domain purchase.

       

      You can see our domain prices here.

       

      The annual Combo upgrade costs $99 and comes with a free domain for the first year. Over three years, you will pay 3x$99 = $297 for the premium upgrade, and $27.90 for a two year domain subscription. 

       

      I hope this helps! Please let us know if we could assist you further.

       

      Sincerely, Leah Wix Team

    We are not sure what you mean. The upgraded website will look the same as the free website.
