Checking if a Domain Name is Available
1 min read
A domain name is the unique, virtual address of a website, e.g. www.mystunningwebsite.com. A unique address helps people find your site more easily and makes your site more memorable.
Check if the domain name you want is available, including the extension you wish to use (e.g. .com, .net, .org) then purchase your domain directly from Wix.
To connect a domain to your Wix site you must first upgrade your site with a Premium plan.
To check if the domain you want is available:
- Go to the domain search page.
- Enter a domain name and extension in the search field.
- Click Search.
- (If the domain is available) Click Get It to register the domain.
If the domain is not available, return to step 2 and try another domain and/or extension.
