Hey Webflow Community,
I recently made a new site in Webflow and had my current site hosted & designed in Wix. Anyone who has tried to migrate their domain from Wix to Webflow knows this isn’t an easy process so I figured I would make a tutorial to help others that are going through the same thing.
First off this is a tutorial for people who are on a premium plan with Wix and are also hosting their domain through Wix as well.
Also, this is unfortunately not a fast process so before launching your new site keep in mind that the migration can take up to 5-7 days with Wix… I contacted them to see if there was any way of expediting the transfer but after going back and forth with support at Wix there doesn’t seem to be any way. So sit back and enjoy you weeklong transfer, or use to it find bugs or discrepancies within your site.
Before you do anything in Webflow, you’ll have to start with Wix.
1.Sign into your Wix account.
2. Go to the My Domains page.
Note : If you have more than one domain in your account, select the relevant domain.
2. Click the Advanced tab.
3. Click Transfer away from Wix.
4. Click Send Code .
You’ll receive in email within a few hours with the code.
Choose your new registrar for your domain, I used Google Domains but you’re free to use whatever you’d like.
On the new registrars page you will see a Transfer your domain or something similar, here you will enter the code that was sent to you from Wix.
From here you can follow the existing tutorial on how to transfer your existing domain to your Webflow site.
And that is all, if you have any questions at all feel free to let me know and I’ll be sure to try and help you out!
