How do I link my domain to my Wix account

Important: Before you can connect a domain, your Wix site must be upgraded to a Premium Plan.

There are two ways how you can point your domain registered with us to your website created with Wix - you can do it with the help of nameservers or using an IP address.

PLEASE NOTE: By default, Wix recommends choosing nameservers setup.



Pointing a domain using nameservers

1. Add the domain name on Wix side and obtain the nameservers the domain should be pointed to from there.

2. Sign in to your Namecheap account.

3. Select Domain List from the left sidebar and click on the Manage button next to your domain name:


4. Select the Custom DNS option from the drop-down for Nameservers and enter your Custom nameservers (you see in your Wix account) into the fields. Once done, make sure you click on the green checkmark to save the changes:


It may take 24-48 hours for DNS changes to take effect.

NOTE: If you had an email service or other DNS records set, then you would need to re-configure them on the Wix's side.

5. Return to your Wix account to finish the setup.


It is possible to set up necessary records using this option from Namecheap's side only for domains that are pointed to our BasicDNS, BackupDNS (a legacy option) or PremiumDNS.

1. Connect the domain name to your Wix account and get the DNS records that should be set up for your domain.

2. Sign in to your Namecheap account.

3. Select Domain List from the left sidebar and click on the Manage button next to your domain name:


4. Click on the Advanced DNS tab and find the Host records section. Then click on the Add New Record button (are you unable to edit host records?):


5. Configure the three records you see in your Wix account if you want to use a bare domain for your website, e.g., yourdomain.tld:

  • A record for @ pointing to 23.236.62.147*
  • CNAME record for www pointing to www192.wixdns.net*
  • CNAME record for m pointing to www192.wixdns.net*
              *These values are just examples, the correct ones should be provided in your Wix account.


6. Click on the Save All Changes button once done. Normally, it takes 30 minutes for newly created records to take effect.

7. Go to the Wix account and finish the setup on their side.
