Wondering how to add a domain to Wix? In this Wix domain tutorial, you'll learn all about connecting a domain name you own to a Wix website. So let's get right into this Wix tutorial on how to connect a domain to your Wix website, where we'll discuss Wix domain cost and how to change a domain on Wix.
First off, if you don't have a Wix account yet, just click on the link in the description box below to sign up for free. After you've logged in to your Wix account, hover your mouse over the website you want to add a domain to Wix to, and then click on 'select site'.
This will redirect you to your Wix website's dashboard. Click on 'settings' from the left-hand side panel, and then on 'website settings'. Under this 'site address (URL)' section, click on 'manage domain'. To connect a domain name you own to a Wix website, click on 'add an existing domain up top' and then on 'connect a domain you already own'.
Add your domain in the space provided, click on 'I'm looking to connect a subdomain' so that it changes to 'I'm looking to connect a domain', and then click on 'next'. Review the information on the screen and then click on 'start'. Although I don't have access to the checklist that appears on your screen since I've already connected a domain to this Wix website, I'll show you where to locate everything in your domain host account.
To connect your domain, you must update your domain's name server settings in your domain host account (usually the company you bought your domain from). Yesterday I showed you how to buy a domain with GoDaddy, if you haven't watched that yet, I'll leave the link to it in the description box below, so we'll be using that domain name to connect to our Wix website.
In another tab, login to your GoDaddy account, and then back in Wix click on 'I logged in'.
Head back to GoDaddy, and go to the domains page. To access that, click on your name on the top, right-hand side, 'my products', click on the three little dots on the top, right-hand side of your domain, and then click on 'edit settings'. Back in Wix, click on 'I found my domain settings'.
In the domain settings in GoDaddy now, click on the area where you manage or edit name server records. To access that, scroll all the way down until you reach this 'additional settings' section, and then click on 'manage DNS'. Back in Wix, click on 'I found the nameservers'.
On GoDaddy, replace your current name servers with the Wix name servers provided on the Wix domains page. In my case, that is ns11.wixdns.net and ns10.wixdns.net. Once you've done that, head back to Wix, and click on 'I've replaced my nameservers'.
You have now successfully connected a domain name you own to your Wix website. Note that it may take up to 48 hours for your domain's new DNS records to propagate and your site to appear worldwide.
