Frequently Asked Questions About Domains

1.

Where can I buy a web domain name?

It’s important to buy a web domain name from a certified registrar that manages internet domains. Wix is a GDPR compliant platform and Wix sites have SSL/TLS certificates allowing visitors to submit information securely via HTTPS. As a certified registrar, Wix provides reliable web hosting service and the highest level of domain safety and security.

4.

How do I permanently buy a domain name?

You cannot buy a domain name forever. Rather than owning the domain name permanently, you are renting the license from the domain registry. This means that you have the rights to use the website name, with an option to renew registration after a certain period of time. When you register your domain name with Wix, you can purchase a one, two or three year subscription. As long as you continue to renew your subscription, it will belong to you.

5.

How much does it cost to buy a domain?

You receive a one year free domain voucher with the initial purchase of select Yearly Premium Plans. When you purchase a domain name without a voucher, the cost varies based on the TLD, or Top Level Domains (the letters that come after the period, such as .com) If you want to buy your domain now, you can search above for the domain name you want and purchase it right away.

How does domain name registration work?

When you purchase a domain name from a certified registrar, you acquire the administrative rights to use it – it is yours as long as you pay the annual registration fee. Buying a domain from ICANN accredited registrars ensures the highest level of protection against domain hijacking and identity theft.

7.

How do I renew my domain registration?

To renew your domain name, go to the My Domains page. If you have more than one domain in your account, select the relevant domain. There, you can choose the number of additional years that you wish to extend your domain name registration for, enter your payment details and click Submit Purchase.

How many domains can I connect to a Wix site?

You can connect as many domains purchased from Wix as you'd like to your website, or up to 6 domains purchased elsewhere to a single Premium Wix site. When you register a domain, your primary domain will connect directly to your site and the additional domains will redirect to your primary domain.
