Wix is a popular site builder that makes creating unique websites for your business fast and simple. The drag-and-drop editor they offer makes it extremely simple to create a professional-looking website in a very short amount of time. That’s what makes this company perfect for anyone who doesn’t have much experience with web design or scripts like WordPress. Users can choose from hundreds of different templates and tools without having to know a single line of code. Those with a premium Wix plan will also have the ability to connect their GoDaddy domain name directly with their Wix website or store. When you connect your domain, it means the domain name will remain at GoDaddy, but will be pointing directly to your Wix website. Continue reading below to learn how you can find your designated nameservers in Wix and then configure them inside GoDaddy.
Wix Website Builder Overview
As mentioned above, Wix is the perfect option for individuals or businesses that want a professional looking website without having to write a single line of code. Restaurants, hotels, musicians, and photographers are just a few popular industries that Wix is currently involved with. The company is used by over 100 million people across 190 different countries. If you take a look at some of the website examples that are created by Wix, you can see for yourself that they come out very professional and beautiful. I bet you wouldn’t be able to tell some of those websites were created using pre-made templates! The company has a great reputation in this industry, so if you’re searching for a good website builder then I would highly suggest you consider giving Wix a try.
How To Get Your Nameservers From Wix
Before you can make the necessary changes to your domain name inside GoDaddy, you’ll need to obtain the nameservers from Wix. Obtaining these nameservers is easy, just Login to your Wix account and then visit This Page and scroll down to where it says Enter the Wix name servers shown below. There should be at least two nameservers listed and they should look something like this: ns1.domainhere.com
NOTE: If you are logged in and do not see nameservers listed on the page above please contact Wix and obtain them from the company before proceeding.
How To Updates Your Nameservers At GoDaddy
1. Visit the GoDaddy Homepage and login.
2. Next, visit the Domain Manager and you should see a list of all domains.
3. Find the domain you will be using for your Wix website and check the box next to it, then click the DNS button. In the DNS drop down, select Update Nameservers.
4. Check the I’ll use my own nameservers box and enter your nameservers from above in these boxes, then click Save.
Once you’ve obtained and updated your nameservers, it can take up to 24 hours for those changes to propagate globally. That means you (and other visitors to the domain) might not be able to access your website during this time period. Nevertheless, nameserver propagation usually only takes a few hours, so test regularly once you’ve updated and your Wix website should start loading soon.
