Managing DNS Records in Your Wix Account

Manage your domain's DNS (Domain Name System) records (e.g., A, CNAME or TXT) from the Domains page in your Wix account.
Your A and CNAME records are essential to keeping your site online, as well for transferring or connecting your site to another host. You can, however, also manage other DNS records from within your Domains page. Explanations of each record and what they do can be found in the FAQs.
