Nameserver seetings / DNS : Pointing vs. Name Servers Domain Connectio

Frank-Grueninger wrote on 8/20/2019, 6:41 PM

My website is build with Wix. I'm trying to connect my domain name hosted by Magix-online.com to the website hosted by Wix. I want to update my DNS settings in Magix! However Magix does not provide me with my DNS or name server settings. So I cannot replace my current name servers with the ones from Wix!!

The only option I find in Magix is redirecting or pointing which I do not want and is not recommended. Please advise, since this would be a deal breaker for me to stay with Magix. Thanks

Pointing vs. Name Servers Domain Connection

DNS is the management of your domain. You use DNS any time that you point your domain to an IP address, redirect emails to your email host or connect different subdomains to different servers.

Pointing your domain to the Wix IP means that your domain host retains control of your DNS and points your domain to the Wix servers.

The difference between pointing to the Wix IP or connecting with name servers is really a difference in who has control over your DNS (Wix or your domain host).

Important:

Wix does not recommend pointing your domain. Instead, we recommend connecting your domain via the Wix name servers.

When connecting your domain via pointing consider the following:

Reduced support & assistance: When you connect your domain to Wix by name servers, we can offer support and assist you in creating any DNS records you might need. Whereas if you connect to Wix by pointing, you would need to contact your domain host with any domain/DNS related issues.

Feature updates are not automatic: We can automatically modify your DNS to accommodate any new feature that requires DNS changes. However, when choosing pointing you would need to manually make these changes with your domain host.

Hi

I would suggest you contact support - there should be a link in your online control panel.
