    I'm confused.  How could one NOT connect a site to a domain name.  In order to have a web site, isn't by definition have to be connected to a domain name.  Otherwise, what is the web site connected to?

      Hey,

      Wix offers you the option of either using a free Wix URL or your own domain.

      For free Users: The format of the free Wix site URL is username.wix.com/sitename.
      You can find your URL simply by clicking on Settings inside your editor > Site Address. You will find your URL under "Your Site Address is:".

      For Premium Users: If you have upgraded your site and want to view it with your own domain, please click  here for instructions.

      We recommend connection your own domain since this improves SEO and helps people find your site easily.

       

      Please let us know should you require further information.

    I dont Agree with EveryOne Here :D  I ranked well and still for lot of free hosting websites Blogger , Wix, Webs .....  Google doesn't care about your domain name it cares about content and backlinks

    Having a paid domain is really important in SEO. Free domains are not easy to get ranked high in google faster. Also people believe top level domains more than free domains

      Both are important but yes, SEOing your website without a domain will most likely pay off but only to a certain extent, you will hit a glass ceiling at some point.
