Cloudflare: Connect Cloudflare Domain with Wix

Connect Cloudflare to Wix

Connect Cloudflare Domain with Wix

Connecting a Cloudflare domain with Wix is a 2-part integration process.

The first part requires you to Add your custom domain through Wix website while the second part is for you to Configure the DNS through Cloudflare.

Since you’re already using Cloudflare name servers, the only option to integrate your domain through Wix is manually adding A and CNAME record(Pointing method).

Before you begin:
You must upgrade your Wix site to a Premium Plan before you can connect your domain.

Part 1: Add Your Custom Domain through Wix

  1. Go to the Domains page in your Wix account.
  2. Click Connect a domain you already own. Note: If you already have a domain in your account, click Add an Existing Domain, then select Connect a domain you already own.
  3. Select the site you want to connect your domain to and click Next.
  4. Enter the domain name.
  5. Click DNS next to Connection Method at the bottom of the page.
  6. Select Pointing.
  7. Click Confirm.
  8. Click Next.

Wix will display the necessary CNAME and A record or Name servers where you can point your domain name to.

Part 2: Configure DNS via Cloudflare

This part is where you need to add the A and CNAME record through Cloudflare dashboard.

 

Pointing method / A and CNAME

You should edit or add Wix A and CNAME records. Here are example Wix resource records:

Host NameTypeData
@ (domain.com)A23.236.62.147
www (www.domain.com)CNAMEwww170.wixdns.net

To create a CNAME record, please follow these steps:

  1. Login to your Cloudflare account.
  2. Select your domain name on the list.
  3. Click the DNS settings tab.
  4. Click the +Add record or edit the existing www subdomain.
  5. Enter Wix CNAME record and click Save.

Verify Your Domain Connection

Once you’ve updated your domain’s DNS records, return to the Domains page in your Wix account and click Verify Connection. Due to DNS propagation delay, you may not be able to verify the domain connection immediately.

DNS Propagation

All DNS changes may take up 48 hours to fully take effect online so you may not see the changes you just did in the domain name. Be patient and give it more time to propagate in the entire internet. Given that the DNS was properly configured, it’s just a matter of time before your domain connects with Wix.
