    How can I connect my domain (purchased elsewhere) to my Wix site?

    Question

    If you have purchased a domain name from another domain registrar, you can either transfer your domain to Wix or connect your domain to Wix’s name servers.

    Connecting a domain to your site is a premium feature, if you have not yet upgraded your site, click here.

    To connect your domain to Wix's name servers: Sign in to your Wix account > from the top menu, hover over Subscriptions > click Domains. Click Use a Domain You Already Own > click Connect your domain to Wix but keep your current registrar.
    Under Setup with Wix, enter your domain name and select the site that you want it connected to > click Next.
    Under Setup with Registrar > choose your domain host from the list.

    Now you will need to set up the connection with your domain registrar. For instructions for Various Domain Hosts, click one of the links below:

    GoDaddy Name Servers (Recommended method!) Pointing
    Network Solutions Name Servers (Recommended method!) Pointing
    CrazyDomains Name Servers (Recommended method!) Pointing
    Google Apps Name Servers (Recommended method!) Pointing
    123Reg.co.uk Name Servers (Recommended method!) Pointing
    1&1 Name Servers (Recommended method!) Pointing
    easyDNS Name Servers (Recommended method!) Pointing
    Yahoo! Name Servers (Recommended method!)
    123Reg.com Name Servers (Recommended method!)
    Other Domain Hosts Name Servers (Recommended method!)

    The connection may take up to 72 hours to take effect.

    Note: It is also possible (although not recommended) to connect your domain via Pointing.

    You can also purchase a domain directly from Wix and even receive a voucher for the first year free! Click here to learn more.
