    Can I host a Wix site on my own server?

    No. Wix doesn't support the option of exporting files created using Wix to an external destination / Hosts as we host all your Wix creations on our servers.
    You can connect your Wix site to your own domain! For information about how to do this, click here.

     

    Can I connect more than one domain to one Wix site/document?

    Yes, you can now connect up to three domain names (URLs) to one Wix site through the Wix domain manager:
    Step 1: Decide which domain address is your primary one (www.domain.com).  The other domain address (www.domain2.com) will be your secondary.
    Step 2: Connect your primary domain to Wix.
    Step 3: Once you have connected your primary domain to your Wix site, go to Manage Premium > click on the Domains tab > select your secondary domain from the list > Basic .

    Next to ‘Wix Site’ click on ‘Change’ > In the pop-up window select ‘To another domain name’, select your primary domain from the drop down menu and click on ‘Save’ > Your domain name is now redirected ! You will be able to see this under the Domain Summary.

    Note: Please allow 24 hours for the redirection to propagate to have your secondary domain redirecting to your primary domain. Over the first 24 hours a website will be available under two domain names (secondary and primary ones). After 24 hours when typing in the secondary domain name the address in the browser's address bar will change to your primary domain name.
