Our business site currently uses WordPress as a platform, but we would like to switch our domain over to a site we built on Wix. When I accessed the domain transfer walkthrough, it states that the domain is not available for transfer. How do I solve this?

Hello,

Thanks for your question about switching platforms. Wix is a proprietary site builder, so you will not actually be transferring WordPress to Wix, unless that is a service they offer. Likely, a new site will be built with Wix and DNS for the domain will be pointed there. Using the DNS information provided by Wix, you can use the cPanel DNS Zone Editor in your hosting account to point your domain.

Best,
Christopher M.
