To connect GoDaddy Wordpress to Wix Domain

Hi guys, I built a Wordpress in GoDaddy and want to connect with my Wix domains. However, the site is only working without prefix (with www.). 
foeyonghai.com is working, but not www.foeyonghai.com

I would lke to know what is the problem. Because of the CNAME ?

Make sure www.yourdomain.com is pointing to the same place as yourdomain.com in the DNS settings.

Re: To connect GoDaddy Wordpress to Wix Domain

Hi Nate, 

thank you so much for your help. I also read the article before i post the question here.

I have chatted with few customer service regarding this too, the problem is, as you can see from the wix support link, the A record points to an IP address, but the CNAME points to a domain name. 
The GoDaddy can only provide me the CNAME Point to value which is a "@", and Wix DNS setting will tell me this is an invalid domain name. 

Or should I add a www.yourdomain.com in A records with the same IP address, but not the CNAME? 

I hope you can help me on this, much appreciated.

Sorry, then I also tried this, the WIX DNS setting will tell me , I can't enter a hostname (www.yourdomain.com) which CNAME already have, so I can't add www.yourdomain.com in A records.

What is the CNAME you already have?

I didn't see you had 2 posts...

 

That is the difference between them, A is for IP address and CNAME is for domain.

 

Point the cname for www to yourdomain.com or delete it and create an A record for it pointing to the same IP address.

Hi Nate, thank you so much for the helping me on this.
So in this case you mean:

A record
Hostname: www.foeyonghai.com
Points to: 160.153.137.99

and I leave the CNAME empty. 

Is this correct?

You should be able to delete the CNAME record by clicking the little red x icon to the left of it.

Re: To connect GoDaddy Wordpress to Wix Domain

Hi Nate, 

Now I set the DNS setting as you suggested, 

A record
Hostname: www.foeyonghai.com
Points to: 160.153.137.99

And CNAME record is deleted and I don't have any CNAME record in the DNS setting now. 

But both foeyonghai.com and www.foeyonghai.com is not more working. Is this correct?

You should have two DNS records, one each for foeyonghai.com and www.foeyonghai.com, both pointing to your hosting account.

Re: To connect GoDaddy Wordpress to Wix Domain

Can you explain it more clear,
two DNS records of what? two A records and no CNAME records? 

@A record

Hostname: foeyonghai.com
Points to: 160.153.137.99
@A record
Hostname: www.foeyonghai.com
Points to: 160.153.137.99

And no CNAME records at all. 

Is this correct?

Yes, if that is the IP address for your hosting account it should work.

Re: To connect GoDaddy Wordpress to Wix Domain

Hi Nate, 

Now i can see that if I go to www.foeyonghai.com
it will lead me to foeyonghai.com and mentioned that the site is not secured.

What is the reason and appreciated if you can help me on this again. 

Sorry for bothering so much.

An SSL certificate is needed to use https:// instead of http://, this encrypts the data and verifies the connection is secure.

 

Previously this was only required for business websites, or any websites with login or that collects information from the user.  Now Google is pushing for more sites to use SSL, so it is taken into account for SEO and their web browser more clearly identifies the status.
