domain name to wix

Already built your perfect website using Wix but would like to have your own domain name and point to it? You have come to the right article, as I will share with you how to connect your domain name from other hosting provider to your Wix website. You can connect it with only 3 simple steps that I will be sharing. 

But wait, before I begin: 

You must upgrade your Wix site to a Premium Plan before you can connect your domain. If not, sorry, you can’t do so with a free account there. 

If you’re on Premium Plan already, follow me for the steps below! 

Step 1 : Add the Domain name to your Wix account

  1. Go to My Domains in your Wix account. 
  2. Click Connect a domain you already own
  3. Select the site you would like to connect your domain to and click Next
  4. Enter your domain name and click Next.
  5. (If shown) Where did you buy your domain? Click the drop-down 
  6. (If shown) Select your domain host and click Next

Step 2: Update the Name Servers in your domain host account

Go to your domain host account and go to DNS or name server settings. Replace the current nameservers with the following:

Replace with Wix nameservers into it.

Once done, return to your Wix account settings. 

Step 3: Verify your domain connection 

Now, go back to Wix account to verify the connection. In Wix account, go to My Domains and click Verify Connection by these steps: 

  1. Go to My Domains in your Wix account.
  2. Select the domain you’re trying to connect.
  3. Click the Advanced tab.
  4. Click Check connection.
  5. Then Restart Connection Wizard.
  6. Scroll down and click Verify Connection.

And lastly, for this to take effect, it may take up to 48 hours for the nameservers to change and propagate. 

I hope with these simple steps above, you can easily connect your domain to your great personalised website in Wix.
