How To Transfer Your Domain Name to the Wix Platform




Transferring your domain to Wix means Wix will host your domain and you will be able to manage all domain settings and billing once the transfer is complete. Remember, Wix technically doesn’t charge any transfer fees however, you are required to purchase a minimum of one year of domain registration.


Follow these steps to transfer your domain to Wix:

  1. Connect your domain to Wix before you begin the transfer. (note: you must have a Premium Plan to connect your domain)

  2. Click here to get your transfer started.

  3. Read the instructions and click Start Transfer.

  4. Enter the domain you want to transfer (e.g., mystunningwebsite.com).

  5. Click the drop-down menu to select where the domain was purchased from and click Continue.

  6. Log in to the account where your domain was purchased, then in your Wix account, click I logged in.

  7. Make sure your domain is unlocked in the account where your domain was purchased, then in your Wix account, click I unlocked it.

  8. Get an authorization code from the account where your domain was purchased, then in your Wix account, paste it into the Enter authorization code field.

  9. Click Continue.

  10. Select an extension period of at least one year. Tip: If you have a free domain voucher, it's automatically applied.

  11. Click Continue.

  12. Check and/or edit your contact information.

  13. Click Continue.

  14. Select a privacy option:

  • Private Registration: Your contact details won't appear in the WHOIS domain information records. You can turn the privacy protection option on and off whenever you want.

  • Public Registration: Your name and address always remains public in the WHOIS domain information records. You can only change it to private when manually extending the domain subscription.

  1. Click Continue.

  2. Select your payment method.

  3. Click Submit Purchase.

Once you've submitted the purchase, an email is sent from wix-team@registrar.wix.com to your domain's registrant contact email, confirming that the transfer has been initiated. It may take up to 7 days for your domain transfer to complete.
