    How can I rename my Wix site and change my free Wix URL?

    Question

    A free Wix URL is made of username.wix.com/sitename. Changing your username and/or site name will change your free Wix URL.

    To change your username: Sign in to your Wix account > click My Sites > hover over the user panel at the top right > click Account Settings > under User Name, enter your new username.

    To change your site name: Sign in to your Wix account > click My Sites > next to the relevant site, click Manage Site > on the left, click Popular Shortcuts > click Rename.

    To change the free Wix URL to a domain name that you own, you will first need to upgrade to a premium plan that includes this feature. For more information and to purchase a plan, click here.

    If you haven't yet purchased your own domain name, you can purchase one directly from Wix! To learn more about purchasing a domain from Wix, click here.

    If you sign up for a Yearly Combo, Unlimited or eCommerce plan, you will receive a voucher to get a domain free for a year! Click here to learn more.

    If you were referring to changing your domain name to another domain that you own, this can be done from the Domains page.

    To access this page: From the top menu, hover over Subscriptions > click Domains.
