Connect Wix Domain to my Droplet not working

Posted September 30, 2020 477 views

Looking for some help with setting up my Wix Domain to point to my droplet.

Currently I have setup Wordpress on my droplet, and added my domain on DigitalOcean with “A” record, and “CNAME” configured, setup for DigitalOcean is as follows

My A record is as follows: “mydomainname.com directs to mydropletip”

My CNAME record is as follows: www.my_domain_name.com is an alias of mydomainname.com”

On my Wix Dashboard I have my “A” record set as:

“mydomainname.com — dropletipaddress”

When I Google my domain name I am given this error:

*“This site can’t be reached mydomainname.com’s server IP address could not be found. Try running Windows Network Diagnostics. DNSPROBEFINISHED_NXDOMAIN”
*

Any sort of issue why this is happening. If I go to my droplets IP address I am greeted with a “non” rendered version of some Wordpress page.

Wix does not allow changing nameservers for w/e reason, and I have tried about everything I can think of… Please help :)

Thanks

Hi there @StoneMn,

It seems you did not change the nameservers in your Wix account. Could you look into the following answer - https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/i-have-a-domain-registered-with-wix-which-i-want-to-point-at-one-of-my-droplets-what-do-i-need-to-change-and-where

You should be able to change the nameservers as stated in the answer I posted.

Let me know if that helps.

Best,
Dennis
