How to Connect Your Domain to Your Wix Website


WATCH ON YOUTUBE INSTEAD Here is a simple tutorial on how to connect your domain name to your website. Whether you have designed your own site or if a site was transferred to you from another designer, it's easy to connect a domain that you've purchased through Wix. ----- Video Transcription Hi everyone! It’s Sarah from Design You Marketing. I’m going to show you how to connect your domain name to your website whether you built the website on your own or if it's been transferred to you by another designer. Open the site you want to connect and there's a little link down below that says “connect your own domain”. If you're in a different part of Wix there's also a drop-down up here (top right of screen) and you can get to domains that way as well. We will click the one link below the website name and it's going to bring up a page that says “buy a new domain name” or “connect a domain you already own”. If you haven't purchased a domain name yet you can click right here and they'll give you an option to choose an address and search for it to see if it's available so you can go ahead and do that to purchase your domain if you haven't already. I'm going to go back right now and click “connect a domain you already own”. This going to bring up this box and since I'm giving my tutorials from a dummy site I don't have a Premium plan with it, but if you've already purchased a Premium plan it will skip the section. If you haven't you can click the link and it'll bring you to the options you have. They have different options. They have one for $14 a month and they're having some sales right now so you can look and read down the side and see which one fits what you're doing. There's website plans, business and e-commerce plans, and Enterprise plans. Most of my clients are in the business and e-commerce plans so you can look through that if you were running a business.


So once you purchase one of these, it will bring you through and guide you through connecting your domain. You have to have a Premium plan to connect your domain. That’s important. So I’m going to go back here. So, once you get to this page you will be all set and you just click that link and let it take you through the steps and will be able to connect your domain. If you don’t know what that means it’s when you publish your website that you purchased (or that you designed) and this is your address before you connect (yourwebsite.Wixsite.com/yoursite) so that will change to whatever your domain name is. My domain name is www.DesignYouMarketing.com...so instead of having this long name with ads by Wix you'll have your own website address and it'll display the website that you purchased (or designed) and you will be LIVE and ready to go.
