I have purchased a domain in GoDaddy and delegated to my client's website created in Wix and is working OK.

Now my client wants to add some subdomains that points to a local machine on his network using NO-IP.

I need to delegate that subdomain to No-IP and keep the main site in Wix. Is that possibly?

  • Are these sub-domains to be accessed via the Internet or just for internal use? – closetnoc Jul 31 '17 at 23:28
  • Also, if your are using NO-IP the company, your solution will come from them. Normally, a sub-domain is assigned using an A record within the DNS. If you are using GoDaddy for your DNS then dynamic IP is available through GoDaddy. I suggest starting there. – closetnoc Jul 31 '17 at 23:33

I need to delegate [a number of subdomains] to No-IP and keep the main site in Wix. Is that possible?

From this Wix Support article, it seems Wix allows you to point a domain at them via an A record while keeping DNS under your control or you can allow them to manage DNS directly for the domain.

The choice between these method of connecting the domain to Wix will have an effect on accomplishing your client's goal.

Assuming the client wishes to use No-IP as a dynamic DNS provider, you have a few options.

Wix DNS

  • Set up a redirect in Wix from the subdomain to the No-IP URL e.g. sub.noipdomain.com (this can potentially change the URL in the browser).

Wix Pointing

  • Set up a redirect in GoDaddy from the subdomain to the No-IP URL e.g. sub.noipdomain.com (this can potentially change the URL in the browser).

  • Purchase "managed" DNS services from No-IP so they can control the DNS for example.com directly and thus dynamically update sub.example.com via their update program. You will need to update GoDaddy's nameserver settings in this case.

As a suggestion, for the second Wix Pointing option, you also may want to investigate Namecheap FreeDNS. As its name implies, it is currently free and should provide the same basic functionality as the paid No-IP option above (they have a dynamic DNS client).
