How do I point my domain name to a Wix website?

Last updated: January 20, 2020

If you have created a new website with Wix, you’ll be required to point your domain to them through DNS records, which you can set up either on your domain name or cPanel hosting service depending on what service you have with us.

If you only hold your domain registration with us:

If you have registered only your domain name with us, then you will configure your domain to point to Wix via your MyZuver account.

  1. Login to your MyZuver account.
  2. Click on the My Services option on the top left of the page >> Domains from the menu below.
  3. Hit the Manage button for the domain name that you want to connect to Wix.
  4. Select the Manage DNS option under the DNS area on the left.
  5. If you are not currently on the Free DNS Hosting option then click the Change DNS button to edit.
  6. Hit the Add DNS record option (Bottom right) to add the records as instructed by Wix.
  7. Repeat Step 6 as required for each record.

If you’re unsure of the records Wix require, please login to their control panel or contact their support team.

Please be aware that by changing your domains configuration with a live website or email service, it will cease to continue operating normally.

Changes to DNS configuration, such as to configure your Wix setup, may take up to 24 hours to take effect due to DNS propagation.

If you have your hosting service with us:

If you have your domain name pointed at a cPanel hosting service with us, you will be able to point your domain to Wix through cPanel. To do this please follow these steps:

  1. Login to your MyZuver account.
    You can do this by navigating to ‘My Services’ >> ‘Hosting’ and then by clicking the ‘cPanel’ login button.
  2. Once you’ve logged in to cPanel, click the Zone Editor icon.
  3. Add the records as per Wix’s instruction.

If you are updating your primary domain’s A record but require email to remain setup on our cPanel web hosting server, you will also need to ensure the mail A record is pointed to the cPanel server IP.

Then go to your cPanel home page, click the MX record icon and change your main MX record from yourdomain.com to mail.yourdomain.com.

If you’re unsure of the records Wix require, please login to their control panel or contact their support team.

Please be aware that by changing your domains configuration with a live website or email service, it will cease to continue operating normally.

Changes to DNS configuration, such as to configure your Wix setup, may take up to 24 hours to take effect due to DNS propagation.
