How do I use my own domain name with Wix?
Wix.com is a service that allows you to create free Flash-based Web sites using special design tools. Some people may want to use this service as an alternative to building their own Web site by hand.
Unfortunately, Wix doesn't allow you to save the Web site you create and host it on different servers. Instead, they host the files on their servers using an address like example.wix.com — unless you upgrade to their paid “Premium” plan, which then displays your Web site using your own domain name (like www.example.com) by pointing your domain name at their servers.
Configure Wix to recognize your domain name
The first thing you need to do is to tell Wix what your domain name is. Follow these instructions on their Web site to tell Wix your domain name and connect it to your Wix Web site.
Configure Wix to point e-mail traffic at Tiger Tech servers
Wix recommends using their DNS nameservers (when using their “Premium” plan), which points all Web and e-mail traffic to their servers by default. If you have e-mail service with us as part of a hosting package, you will want to make sure e-mail continues to be sent to our servers (instead of being directed to the Wix servers, which reject all mail).
Therefore, if you want to continue e-mail service with us, you should add our custom DNS “MX” records to the Wix control panel.
Here is a list of our MX records which need to be added to the Wix control panel.
Updating the DNS nameservers for your domain name to point at Wix
Once you have configured your domain at Wix as described in the steps above, simply contact us and let us know that you would like your Web site pointed to Wix. We can make the appropriate changes for you and verify that they are working correctly.
If you have any trouble, or you are uncomfortable with these instructions, you can contact us and we'll be glad to do it for you. Be sure to forward to us a copy of any setup instructions provided by Wix, as well as your Wix login e-mail address and password.
