How can I transfer my design website in Wix to premium Wix?

Introduction

Congratulations on your new business! Since you're in the design field, I'm sure you have a great sense of style. If you decide to use Wix to build your site, I'm confident you'll be able to create a website that reflects that great sense of style too.



To answer your question: it is possible to transfer your design website in Wix over to premium Wix, but there are a few things you should know first. You can transfer content from your personal website over to your new business website, but not everything can be transferred or reused—such as Premium Plans or Connect Domains (if your current site has either).


Here is what else you need to know about transferring content from one Wix account to another:


You can upgrade your design to premium Wix.

If you’re planning to transfer your design website in Wix to premium Wix, you can upgrade your design to premium Wix. You don't need to create a new account or start from scratch.


Wix will take care of all the details for you and make sure that everything goes smoothly.

There are some limitations on what content can be transferred from a personal website and business websites:

  • The description of the business (if present) must be updated with information about its products or services before transferring it. This is because this section is used for search engines when people are looking for relevant businesses based on their location, category or keywords typed into search engines such as Google or Yahoo!.

  • There are no limitations when transferring content from one type of company (such as sole proprietorship) where there is no difference between personal and professional use


You can transfer content from a personal website to a business website.

You can transfer content from a personal website to a business website or vice versa.

However, there are some things that you should know before you do this. As of now, Wix does not offer any migration tool for the transfer of data between domains (business and personal). If you want to move your domain from one Wix account to another, there are a few things that need to be done:

  • You will first have to create a new Wix account with the same email address as the old one. Once this is done, go into your old account and delete all of its information within it so that no one can access it anymore. This includes deleting any photos or videos which may still be stored on their servers (you may have uploaded them previously). Now log out of this account completely and close all tabs/windows which were open during its use because otherwise anyone could gain access by following these steps themselves!


Your business name, billing address, and business email don't have to be the same on both websites.

If you have a website on Wix.com and want to upgrade to Premium, your business name, billing address and business email don't have to be the same on both websites.

  • You can use your personal name instead of your business name

  • You can use a different address than the one you have on Wix.com

  • Your billing/shipping information doesn't have to match either (but if it's not matching, we recommend that you use the same contact info as before so that customers are able to reach out)


You cannot transfer your domain and SEO settings.

In Wix, you can't transfer your domain and SEO settings. That means that you need to use a different domain for your new website.


If you're transferring from our free plan, make sure that you change the URL of your new site—otherwise, it might be hard for visitors from other websites to find what they're looking for if they search by name or brand.


You cannot transfer or reuse Premium Plans or Connect Domains (if your current site has either).

You cannot transfer or reuse Premium Plans or Connect Domains (if your current site has either).

This means:

  • You can't transfer any Premium Plans to another website.

  • You can’t reuse any Connect Domains on another website.


Follow the steps we outline to give you some peace of mind when upgrading your Wix website.

Here are some important steps to take before you upgrade:

  • Make sure your website is up to date.

  • Back up your website before upgrading.

  • If possible, make sure your Wix account has a strong password (not a weak one like “12345” or “password1234”) and is set so that it cannot be changed without email confirmation from you (or someone with access to your email).

  • Make sure you have the latest version of Wix installed on your computer and browser as well as the latest operating system if applicable (for example, Mac users should make sure they have macOS Sierra 10.12 or later).

Conclusion
