• Overview

    With Wix, you can connect your domain to your Wix creation so that when visitors type in your domain they will automatically be taken to your site! You can connect your domain to our servers in one of two ways: by connecting your domain to Wix's name servers or by pointing your domain to Wix's IP. Below you will find step-by-step instructions on connecting your domain to Wix using name servers. For information on connecting by pointing, click here.

    You will have to purchase a domain from a domain registrar of your choice before you can connect it to your Wix site.
    Please note that connecting a domain is a Premium feature and you will have to upgrade your site before you can connect a domain. If you upgrade to the Combo, Unlimited or eCommerce Yearly package, you will receive a free domain for one year.

  • Connecting Your Domain with Name Servers (DNS)

    When connecting your domain to your Wix site using name servers, the domain name stays at your hosting company and connects to the Wix servers. Connecting to our name servers transfers control of your domain records to Wix.

    For instructions on adding and editing domain records, click here.

    To connect your domain to your Wix site with name servers (DNS):

    1. Purchase a domain from a domain hosting company.
    2. From Wix.com, hover over Subscriptions and click Domains.
    3. Under Domains, click Use a Domain You Already Own.

    5. Click Connect your domain to Wix but keep your current registrar.

    6. Under Setup with Wix, type your domain name in the field.

    7. Select a site that you would like to connect your domain to and click Next.


    8. Under Setup with registrar, select a registrar from the drop-down menu and click Done.


    9. Follow the instructions to ask your domain host to connect your domain to NS1.WIX.COM and NS2.WIX.COM
    For more information on contacting your domain host, click here.
    10. Click Done.

    It may take up to 72 hours for the change to take effect.

    You cannot update the spelling of a domain name once you have added it to the Domain Manager. If you need to update the domain name, please add a new domain with the correct spelling and delete the old addition.

    You can easily switch the Wix site that your domain is connected to.

    You can only assign a domain to a Premium Wix site. If you only have one Premium package, to reassign a domain, you will first have to transfer the Premium package to your new site. For more information about transferring Premium packages, click here.

    2. Under Domain Summary, click Change.

    3. Under Connect Your Wix Site, choose a Wix document to connect your domain to.

    4. Click Save, then click Done.

    Your domain is connected to a different Wix site.

  • Checking the Connection of Your Domain to Your Wix Site

    In order for your domain to work properly, it must be correctly connected to your Wix site. Generally there are two steps that you need to take for this to happen: (1) you must inform your domain host by letting your host know where to connect your domain name to (2) you must enter your information in the Domain Manager. You can check if you have completed these steps correctly by following the instructions below.
