Configuring your domain for a Wix website
So you have created a website with Wix and now need to configure your domain name at Gandi so that it takes visitors to your website.
After having finished configuring your Wix website for your domain, you will need to make some technical changes to your domain at Gandi. For security purposes, Gandi cannot perform these changes for you.
There are two ways to point your domain to WIX: by changing the DNS or by changing your zonefile.
You will need to log into your domain name with any of the contacts (other than the billing contact) (trouble logging in?).
Method 1: Change your DNS
Wix sent you an email telling you to change your DNS to theirs, and they list them in the email. Please follow our DNS change procedure and change your DNS to the ones that wix provides in their emails.
Please wait up to 48 hours for propagation before testing. DNS changes take time to become effective.
Method 2: Change your zone file
This is possible if you just want to point your domain to the WIX web servers and not disrupt any other services (ex. gandimail) that you are using with your domain at Gandi.
The entry or entries you need to add will look something like this (check your Wix account to be sure):
www 10800 IN A 188.8.131.52
If you are using Wix Mobile, you also need to add:
m 10800 IN A 184.108.40.206
Don't forget to add a record for the bare domain (unless you've added web forwarding):
@ 10800 IN A 220.127.116.11
Which entries you add depends on your own site's configuration.
Example of a zone
Here is an example of a zone file for a domain (we'll use
example.com) that will bring visitors to a Wix.com website:
@ 10800 IN MX 50 fb.mail.gandi.net. @ 10800 IN MX 10 spool.mail.gandi.net. imap 10800 IN CNAME access.mail.gandi.net. smtp 10800 IN CNAME relay.mail.gandi.net. webmail 10800 IN CNAME agent.mail.gandi.net. blog 10800 IN CNAME blogs.vip.gandi.net. pop 10800 IN CNAME access.mail.gandi.net. * 10800 IN A 18.104.22.168 @ 10800 IN A 22.214.171.124
