Connect your Domain to the Wix Name Servers
Connect your GoDaddy domain to Wix by using Wix name servers. With this process, Wix manages your DNS however your domain remains registered with GoDaddy.
You should use this method if you do not have any other DNS records connected at GoDaddy like your email. But, you would want to use the pointing method if you have several DNS records you’d prefer not to reconfigure. Learn more about the differences between connecting your domain via name servers vs. pointing method.
NOTE:- You must upgrade your Wix site to a Premium Plan before you can connect your domain to Wix. Otherwise, it will not work. You can not connect your domain to a free Wix account.
