I need a wix registered domain pointed at a droplet, but I’m a little lost as to where I change the information and what I change that information with.

Thank you in advance.

Hello, @jbaledev

Since the domain name is bought from Wix the DNS zone should be controlled /edited from there. What you need to do is to point the A record of the domain name to the IP address of your droplet.

You should be able to make this change from Wix’s control panel:

Editing DNS Records in Your Wix Account Go to the My Domains page. Note: If you have more than one domain in your account, select the relevant domain. Click the Advanced tab. Click Edit DNS. Edit the relevant records,e.g point the A record of your domain to the IP address of your droplet Click Save DNS.

Let me know how it goes.

Hello, @SephiaSky

If the A record for the domain is already pointed to the IP address of your droplet you should be okay.

If you have a CNAME for www, e.g it’s supposed to be a CNAME for, so once you’ve pointed your main domain to DigitalOcean’s droplet this will be good too. I’m not sure if you’re using for something.

If you’re having trouble to update your nameservers from external domain provider you can check this link:

Hope this helps!
