If your domain registration is with us, then we can help assist you moving your site to Wix no problem. However, if your domain isn’t registered with us, you will need to get in contact with your registrar to make the changes.

Steps:

1. Once you log into your Openhost account, go to your domains list from the navigation bar on the left and click on the domain you want to change.

2. Under the ‘DNS Hosting’ panel there will be a drop-down for ‘Actions,’ click on that then select ‘Switch to Other Nameservers’.

3. In the next window, you input the nameservers that Wix has supplied you. They will look similar to below:

ns8.wixdns.net
ns9.wixdns.net

If you don’t have these records, contact Wix to get them. Once entered hit OK and it will save the new nameservers. This change will take 24 – 48 hours to change over.

 

 

FAQ:

Help! My emails and website have disappeared?
This is a normal process as the website moves between servers it may go down in the transfer. We recommend making the changes outside of business hours such as a late Friday afternoon.

My websites up but now my emails have stopped working!
When you moved to WIX nameservers, you essentially moved all your DNS records to them also. So you will need to point your DNS again to the right servers through Wix’s DNS system.

Can I still make DNS changes on your system?
You can still store DNS zones on our system; however, due to the nameservers not being with us, these records won’t be live if your nameservers are pointing to Wix.
