Hello guys,

 

I am new here. I would like to get your advice on how to link my Domain I purchased from Wix.com and link it to my Adobe Portfolio. I followed the step-by-step process on how to manually connect the custom domain of entering four (4) A records but Wix would allow only two (2). Please see screenshots attached.

 

Is two (2) A's sufficient enough to properly link the domain? I read somewhere that other host allow for only two. One for A, and one for CNAME. I haven't click the "Apply". button in Adobe Portfolio as I'm worried that I might break the link somehow. Please help....

 

This early I would like to thank you guys in advance.

Moved from the Lounge to Download & Install where all the Portfolio questions are landing lately.

 

Honestly, Wix is a DIY website builder, not a domain name registrar like Network Solutions or Domain.com.  In all likelihood, you will need to transfer your current domain name from Wix to a full service provider that gives you all the options you need. 

 

Or you could buy a new domain from Namecheap.com for use with Portfolio.

 

Post back if you still have questions.

I moved your post over from the poorly named Community Help forum, which is for getting help using this forum system.


Best of luck to you.
