Changing Nameservers For a Wix Connection

Introduction

In the Linking a PlanetHoster Domain to Shopify and Wix Platforms article, we read about the preliminary steps for connecting a PlanetHoster domain to a site of any type.

After completing this process, it is necessary to connect your PlanetHoster domain to your existing site by changing its name servers. With the connection method explained here, Wix hosts your DNS, while your domain remains registered with its current registrar, in this case PlanetHoster: you will not only continue to pay and renew your domain to PlanetHoster, but you will also manage its settings.

Note : The PlanetHoster Glossary contains explanations on multiple topics and can be consulted to clarify certain terms.
