    Hi @LDH,

     

    Welcome to the Community!

    If you're trying to move a domain to WIX, you can purchase a transfer there and use these instructions to move your domain registration. 

     

    If you're trying to move your website to WIX, it won't be possible. WIX offers a proprietary website builder like GoDaddy and the files are not transferable. You would need to rebuild a website over at WIX. If you have a general hosting plan (not Websites+Marketing), you can download your website files and any related database in order to use them at another hosting provider. This would require you to purchase another Linux or Windows hosting plan at that provider. 

     

    If you wish to continue to build your site at GoDaddy, using the website builder, you can find lots of instructional articles here, or videos that will help you create the website you envision.
