You will not be able to copy content from Wix to your hosting space with us. Wix does not allow it. There are two ways of dealing with the issue: redirecting your domain to show the content on Wix or redesigning the website on our end using the CMS's we provide or anyther methods of designing a website. I wuold strongly suggest that you redesign your website but before that redirect so that at least while you redesigning your website on your hosting space with us, your domain shuld show the site on Wix.

You can use a simple re-direct in cPanel to direct all traffic to the Wix URL. You can enter cPanel via ClientZone from the Hosting section, and the selecting Redirects in the Domains section of cPanel. You would edit your DNS records in ClientZone to reflect the IP address or URL provided by Wix for your DNS records to direct traffic directly to the site you have hosted with them. You can do this by choosing the Hosting option in ClientZone the clicking on Hosting Settings and DNS Editor.

When you decide to redesign your website, keep your redirect active. You can use any if the CMS's we provide or the Website Builder, CM4All that comes with the Pro Packages on Linux Shared Hosting. CM4all is an easy to use website builder that anyone can understand. With drag and drop features, pre-made themes and easy to use plugins, buiding a website with CM4all is really easy! Create photo galleries, connect with social networks and more.

We also provide CMS's such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc. You can get these packages from the Gold Home package on the Linux Shared Hosting space. These CMS's require a database and we offer databases on LInux Shared Hosting from the Gold Home package.

Once your website has been created you can cancel all the redirects and have your domain server from our Shared Hosting servers. With us you will be able to download a back up of your hosting space and save it on your local computer. You can schedule to download the latest backup from your local computer. Make sure that you also download the database as well when you use the CMS's to build your website.
