Reconnect Your Domain | How to Transfer a Domain from Another Provider

If you have an existing domain registered with another provider, you can transfer it to Wix and create a website with a unique website address. This article will provide you with information on the steps you need to take in order to make this process successful.

The first step in the process is to decide which domain name you would like to transfer and make sure that it is not currently in use. You then need to log into your domain provider and check your domain settings. Make sure to check for any issues that need to be fixed or unlocked. After this, you will need to change the DNS/Name Server settings to our Name Servers and wait until the changes are propagated.

Once the changes are fully propagated, you can come back to Wix and add the domain to your Wix account. To do this, you will need to input your domain name and click 'Connect Domain'. Your domain should be available to use now, however it can usually take up to 72 hours before these changes are visible.

When you are properly connected to Wix, you will need to create a website. You will be guided through a series of setup steps on how to create a simple website. You will have the option to select from a wide range of designs, customize content, and create a unique look for your website. After you have completed these steps, your domain will be connected and ready to use.

Reconnecting Your Domain to Wix is simple, although some steps are time consuming and technical. You will need to have a certain level of technical ability to adjust your domain settings at your previous host. After you have finished the steps above and the changes have been propagated, you will have a new website associated with your domain name. This will give your visitors a memorable address to find you, and it will put you one step closer to achieving your business vision.
