    Site Address contains embarassing words

    Ticket by funkyyypacman | October 13, 2013 | Question
    • Hi,

      I signed up with Wix using my email address, as it turns out, wix makes my site address contain part of my email address, which contains words that sound very unprofessional and is very detrimental to my website,, which is a professional author's website.  How do I edit that word out of my site address?

      If that word cannot be edited out, my wix website will become more of a liability than an asset to me.

      Hi funkyyypacman,

      A free Wix URL is made of username.wix.com/sitename.

      You can find step by step instructions about how to change your username here. To change your site name, go to My Account -> click on Manage & Edit Site next to your site and click Rename under Site Actions on the right side.

      To change your own domain please go into the Wix Domain Manager (My Account -> Domains from the top bar) and remove your old domain and then add the new domain again under your preferred connection method or purchase a domain.

      To connect your own domain to your site, upgrade to Premium and purchase a domain or get one for free (for the purchase of yearly package- Combo, Unlimited or eCommerce)! Click here to learn more.

      If you still do not own the new domain name, you can purchase it from Wix! You can find more information here.

      All the best, Ellie
