hey guys it's Greg and today's video is going to break down how to use a Google domain on a Wix website so I'm just gonna minimize this and let's jump into the computer and talk about it so with every Wix website you're able to connect your domain what this means is you can purchase a website domain the website name that goes up top here and it will no longer be Wix dot website slash whatever your user name is which is really unprofessional so being able to connect the domain is great and you get that with every single plan on Wix the issue is the Wix free domain for a year so as you see the five dollar plan doesn't come with it but the $11 and up plans they come with a free domain for a year now why should you stay away from this what that means is you're going to purchase the domain through Wix and you won't be charged for the first year it'll be free but the next year you'll be charged like forty or sixty dollars and then every year going forward it'll be 40 or 60 bucks a year just to keep that domain name now what's the problem with that well domain names don't cost forty or sixty dollars if you use Google domains it's like twelve bucks for the year every year so you're paying a dollar a month if you do it through here it's gonna be free the first year you're gonna be building your website and your company that first year and then come the second year round you're really gonna need that website domain name because everyone's gonna know about it and everyone's gonna be going to that so you're gonna be forced to pay forty or sixty bucks a year going forward you basically locked in so using Google domains it takes about three clicks to link up that domain to the website you can do that starting all the way at the five-dollar website you can connect your domain so you can do Google domains for any of these lands here even the business ones you can do it as well so what is Google domains so you go to domains dot Google and that's just it not even com domains dot Google and I'll bring you right here and you can search for domains and 99% of them are $12 a year now if it's a premium domain name a really popular name it is more expensive like 30 bucks or 60 bucks a year but chances are your website will just be $12 a year so all you do here is just type in what you're you want your domain name to be and it'll give you all the options that are available so if we're doing East End Cafe I'm just thinking randomly of what a business could be and it'll tell you what's available and what's not available and with different endings you can use so as you can see here East End Cafe is taken so it'll say not available here you can't get it you can see who owns it you can contact them and try to buy if you really want it but it gives you all the different options as well so you've got East End dot Cafe you feel with that $40 a year so that is a more expensive one East End Cafe net twelve bucks a year see most of these are $12 a year if it's something that's really popular like I said you'll be paying more after market means it's probably from GoDaddy or something like that that someone owns it and they're reselling it but this is where you'll come in and you can switch to all endings so it'll give you not just the dot-com org the popular ones but it would give you literally everything you could do East End Cafe co.org dot us whatever you want here but this is what you'll do and then if you really don't see one that you like here you can just I'm just gonna do for example East End Cafe Miami and now you like that's available so you just have to keep playing with it so then once you purchase it through Google Ads twelve dollars you can turn auto-renew on or off if you want to be billed automatically for that twelve dollars a year and then all you'll do is once your websites ready on Wix you can just connect it it's like three clicks there's just a prompt on Wix that says connect your domain select I already own my domain not purchase the free one for the year and it's a couple clicks and you have your website connected so when someone types in East End Cafe Miami it'll go right to your Wix website and I'll say nothing about Wix and you will be all set so if you guys liked this video if it helps you and you want to go on to make your own Wix website I've got my Wix referral link in the
