Transferring a Free Site to Another Wix Account
You can transfer a free site to another Wix account at any time. The free site URL is in the form of https://accountname.wixsite.com/siteaddress. This URL changes when you transfer the site to another account, as the account name is part of it.

Transferring a free site to another Wix account
To carry out the site transfer, you need the recipient's email address. Once you send the transfer invite, the recipient has 3 days to accept it via email.
Before you begin:
Once you transfer the site, the site ownership is transferred and all future subscription payments are managed by the new owner. You can choose to simply add someone as a collaborator instead of transferring ownership. Learn more about Roles and Permissions.
To transfer a site:
- Go to your site's dashboard.
- Click the Site Actions icon at the top of the Home page.
- Select Change Owner.
- Enter the recipient's email address.
Tip: If the person you're transferring to does not yet have an account, they'll be prompted to create one when accepting the transfer.
- (Optional) Select the checkbox next to the relevant options:
- Keep my role as Website Manager of this site after the transfer: Become a collaborator on the site after the transfer. You will have the Website Manager role, which the new site owner can remove at any time.
- Create a copy of this site and keep it in my account: Create a copy of the site in your account after the transfer.
- Click Next.
- Confirm that the site transfer details are correct and click Transfer Ownership.
- Click Got it.
Note: The recipient has 3 days to accept the invite. If they accept, you will receive an email once the transfer is complete.
Go to Roles and Permissions to track and manage your transfers.
