Welcome to our class on connecting domains. Wait a sec! Don’t close that browser window! It’s not as scary as you might think. I promise, by the end of this lesson, you’ll know exactly what to do to connect your site to your own domain.
A domain is the address for your website. It’s what someone types into a browser to find you. For example, the domain for Wix is www.wix.com. Your domain should probably be yourbusinessname.com, or, yourname.com.
In this class we’ll be using some basic website lingo. If you’re not familiar with some of these terms, or want to quickly brush up, check out this class first.
Also! This class assumes that you already have a Wix website. If you don’t have a site at all, you can follow the steps in Chapter 2 to purchase a domain. Remember, though, you need to have a website to actually connect the domain to!
Of course, Wix provides free hosting for all sites. Pretty sweet, if you ask me.
Another quick reminder is that you can only connect a domain to a PREMIUM Wix site. Most of Wix’s yearly Premium plans include a “one year free” voucher for a domain.
There’s one more important tip for this class:
You don’t need to watch it start to finish. Take a look at the chapter names and choose the ones that apply best to you. Watch only WHAT you need, WHEN you need it. To get started, ask yourself the following three questions. They will save you time and help you quickly find the right chapter for your needs.
The first question is – Do you already have a domain? If not, no problem, jump right to Chapter 2 and we’ll explain how to get a domain from Wix.
If you DO have a domain, then the 2nd question is, did you purchase it from Wix? If you did – great! Jump to Chapter 3 to learn how to get it connected to your website.
The third question is, did you purchase your domain somewhere else? If you did, no problem. Start with Chapter 4 and we’ll teach you different ways you can connect it to your Wix website.
Take what you need, leave the rest. And have fun!
