      Hi gap82

      There is no need or way to export your site.  Once it's finished and you have upgraded, you can simply connect your domain to you wix site buy either purchacing a domain from Wix and connecting it, or if you already have a domain you can change the name servers or the A Record on your domain to point to the Wix IP address.


      You can find all the information here .

      Hi Dan,

       

      I am not sure I understand your question. 

      What is the result you would like to achieve with Wix? Please clarify as I sincerely want to help.

      In any case, you don't have to use a template. You can use the Wix Editor to create a website from scratch. 

       

      Thanks,

      Yes, it is very possible. To connect your site to a domain please visit our Domain Portal. The connection may take up to 72 hours to take effect. Connecting a domain to your site is a premium feature. To view our premium packages click here.

      Hey aseebaseeb

       

      Once you are done creating your Wix document, you may connect your own domain (for example www.mydomain.com). You will need to purchase a domain and upgrade your site to one of our Premium packages that allows for this service.

      Wix sells domains! You can follow the instructions here.

      If you purchased a domain from a different domain hosting company, you can connect it to your Wix site by following the instructions here.
      In order to complete the process ask your hosting company (where you purchased your domain name from) to point your domain to the Wix server using the following cnames: ns1.wix.com & ns2.wix.com

      You can also get a free domain coupon from us if you buy one of the yearly packages (Combo/Unlimited/eCommerce).
      You can find more information about this sale here.

       

       

      Remember, Wix only hosts your Wix creations, we do not host email addresses.

      If you have a personalized email account (such as mail@mywebsite.com) - before connecting to Wix, you need to make sure your records are updated.

      In order to get your personalized email account up and running, please ask your email hosting company what records need to be added and then update them in the Domain Manager within your Wix account.

      In the Domain Manager, you can add MX records, A records, CNAME records and TXT records.

      For more info about how to update these records, follow this link.
