How to Transfer Your Domain Name to WiX

WiX allows users to customise flash based web templates. Users can utilise the free WiX subdomain they are given, or use their own full, domain name. Domain names must be purchased from a domain name host since WiX doesn't sell domain names. You must contact that host directly to have them point the domain or transfer it to the WiX name server. When the domain name is just pointed, the original domain host company retains control of the domain name records. When the domain name is connected to the WiX name server, WiX will control the domain name records.
