If you are using Wix as a domain registrar, we recommend transferring your domain to Squarespace. This guide will walk you through the process of transferring your domain from Wix to Squarespace.

Before you begin: Before initiating the domain transfer, make sure you've completed the following prerequisites:

  1. Unlock your domain on Wix: Log in to your Wix account, navigate to the "My Domains" section, and make sure your domain is unlocked for transfer.

  2. Obtain the authorization code (EPP code): Request the authorization code from Wix. This code is necessary for initiating the domain transfer process with Squarespace.

  3. Ensure contact information is up to date: Verify that your contact information associated with the domain is accurate and up to date on Wix.

Now, let's proceed with the transfer:

Step 1: Initiate Domain Transfer on Squarespace

  1. Log in to your Squarespace account.

  2. In the Home menu, click on "Settings," then choose "Domains."

  3. Click on "Use a Domain I Own."

  4. Enter your domain name and click "Continue."

  5. Squarespace will prompt you to enter the authorization code. Input the code you obtained from Wix and follow the on-screen instructions.

Step 2: Confirm Domain Transfer

After entering the authorization code, Squarespace will guide you through the confirmation process. Verify the details and confirm the domain transfer.

Step 3: Check Transfer Status

Monitor the domain transfer status within your Squarespace account. The transfer process may take a few days. Squarespace will notify you once the transfer is complete.
