Switching Your Domain's Connection Method

2 min read
You can switch your domain's connection method to change who hosts your domain's DNS records.

With a name servers connection, you manage your domain's DNS in your Wix account, as Wix hosts your DNS. With a pointing connection, you manage your domain's DNS with another company, as they host your DNS.
Not sure which connection method to use?
In most cases we recommend connecting via name servers. However, pointing might be a better option if you have several DNS records you'd prefer not to reconfigure. Learn more about the differences between connecting via name servers vs. pointing.

To switch your domain's connection method:

  1. Remove the domain from your Wix account. 
2.  Re-add the domain, selecting the connection method you'd like to use:
3.  Follow the instructions on your screen to update the DNS records with your domain host. 
  • If you don't see instructions to update your DNS records in step 3, you've already updated them.
  • It can take up to 48 hours for your domain connection to go live worldwide due to DNS propagation.
