Pointing a domain to Wix using DNS IP records

It’s possible to setup DNS records to link your Wix website to your domain if it is pointed to Ecenica Free DNS.

We strongly recommend using the Pointing method to connect your Ecenica domain to your Wix website if you have a Ecenica Email hosting plan. Using Ecenica name servers and connecting your domain to your Wix website using Pointing keeps your email accounts working 100% and ensures all our advanced email features such anti-spam and anti-spoofing work correctly.
