hey everyone welcome back to another edition of the wicks fundamentals for the Wix user this video is actually for one of our Facebook followers who had a question regarding connecting her domain to her Wix site just a quick little tip opinion and really avant on my part I don't believe in keeping all your eggs in one basket so I always recommend that my clients purchase their domain outside of the Wix platform it gives you a little bit more control over your domain and also if for whatever reason you decide to leave the Wix platform it'll make it a lot easier once the once you want to transfer out to possibly different platform or just transfer the domain completely so when it comes to connecting your domain to your Wix site you can do steps one of two ways you can either connect your you're outside domain to the Wix platform first and then connect your domain to your Wix website in the platform or you can do it vice-versa I always recommend connecting the outside domain to the Wix platform first because that takes the longest when it comes to propagating so propagating is basically when your domain connects to your website it can take 24 to 48 hours for that propagation to occur so why not get the start of the process started just a little bit quicker and connect your domain to the Wix platform first so in order to do that we need to be able to change the name servers on your your on your website on your domain I should say so I recommend all my clients use one on one com that's just personal preference I've used them for 15 years and never had a problem with them in fact if you can if you purchase a new domain through them you actually get a free web free email at your domain as well so the first thing we got to do is go into our admin panel for our domain your admin panel is gonna look different if you don't use one in 1.com but the process of connecting your website doesn't change no matter what's domain host you use so ID 101.com I have the option to change the destination just the destination which is basically kicks me to another window or I can just credit to name servers it doesn't matter simplest is just to put a name servers one thing I always recommend to is before you connect your name servers do a quick google search for Wix name servers you'll find a support page on Wix comm that will have the name servers listed you'll have to log in but that's a quick simple fix quick simple step just to make sure you have the most up-to-date aname servers I don't believe they've changed but doesn't hurt to double-check once you have those name servers actually which support gives you a quick little link to copy and copy the name servers right to your clipboard I usually just highlight and copy doesn't matter you can go in to edit your name servers and here's where you're going to list your to name servers that Wix has on their support page once you get that click Save and that step is done now your name servers are connecting to the Wix platform so now that we've connected the name servers to the Wix platform connected the domain to the name servers to the Wix platform now we need to go into our account on our Wix page go to my sites and it could do it one or two ways you can either go to my sites select your sites go to your domains or you can hit the drop-down and go to those domains sometimes it's easier just to go go this way so now if you have not added your domain to the Wix your Wix account you click Add domain connect a domain you already own and it's gonna pop this up ok I'm going to go a different route just because I don't want to connect any domains to this for these sites but you can also do is click on any of your websites that you've created so you're gonna have your Wix site calm backslash that kind of site and you can connect your domain to that site so you have your domain here this is just a domain I have sitting in here I can collect select that domain and basically attach it to any web site so these are all web sites that are either connected or not connected an easy way to tell if a website that you have has been published which I would recommend doing before you connect is if you see this little wick symbol this just means that it's not connected and I just happen to have a premium account that I'm not using currently that are automatically connected to I click the assign button once I click the assign button Wix then connects your domain name to that specific site that you've designed once it's connected it's a matter of waiting don't be surprised when you connect for your new sites to look a little weird that's normal for a little while your site may go from not being able to be found to being able to be found that not being able to be found if you've had a previous site on this domain you may notice for up to 48 hours if you go on one time you'll go you'll see your new site go on the next time you'll see your old site again that's normal that's just basically the internet trying to figure itself out when it comes to that domain so once that's all what they say it propagated once everything's good to go within 24 to 48 hours when you go to that domain you should be able to to see that in your site if for some reason you can't a quick little thing to do is go in and actually delete your internet kak just to be safe delete your kak go out your browser go back in your browser and see if you can see your your new site sometimes the that that internet history can actually mess with with being able to see that site so just a quick little heads-up that's the end of the video if you liked the video make sure to subscribe like the video give that good old thumbs up and also make sure to watch any other other videos that we've created now there should be a pop-up popping up on my my right your left that's going to show a preview of another video that I've done check out the videos make sure like our Facebook page search
