Can I Use My Own Domain With Wix?

Last updated on October 1, 2022 @ 4:53 am

If you have your own domain name, you can absolutely use it with Wix! In fact, we recommend it.

Using your own domain name with Wix gives you full control of your website’s web address and branding. Plus, search engines like Google tend to rank websites with a custom domain higher than those without one.


Exciting update! We've collaborated with Wix to offer WBI users with a free plan for all website creation needs - Explore the details here.

There are two ways to connect your domain to Wix: DNS and nameservers. We recommend using DNS if you have an existing website that you want to keep live while you build your Wix website.

Nameservers are best for brand new websites or if you don’t have an existing website that you want to keep live.

PRO TIP: If you are using a Wix site to host your website, you cannot use your own domain. Wix will provide you with a subdomain ( that you can use to point to your Wix site.

Here’s how to connect your domain using DNS:

  1. Log in to your Wix account and go to Domains. If you don’t have a Wix account yet, create one here.
  2. Click Connect Domain.
  3. Enter your domain name and click Continue.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions. We’ll give you specific instructions on what settings to update on your domain registrar’s site.

Ready to take your website to the next level? Connecting your own domain is just one of the many ways you can customize your site with Wix.
