Disconnect my domain from Wix



I have recently purchased a domain from Go Daddy, and connected it to Wix for hosting as I created a website there.


Now I wish to disconnect by domain from Wix, keep my domain name at go daddy but host my website at Hosgator (where I already have a hosting account). I plan to rebuild the website entirely.


How can I disconnect from Wix and point at Hostgator? Would changing the DNS nameservers on my Godaddy control panel so that the domain points to Hostgator be enough? 


Thank you 


Hello @helloplanb!


Thank you for posting. Yes, that's exactly what you'd need to do. You need to update the nameservers so the domain knows to get it's DNS settings from your new host rather than the old one.
