Can I Buy a Domain Name Through Squarespace?

Last updated on December 25, 2022 @ 5:04 pm

As the world increasingly moves online, your website is one of the most important ways to reach new customers and grow your business. Your domain name is your website’s address on the internet, and it’s an important part of your branding.

Many web hosting providers will offer to register a domain name for you when you set up your account with them. But if you’re using Squarespace to build your website, you can register your domain name directly through us. In fact, we make it easy to find and buy the perfect domain for your Squarespace site.

To buy a domain through Squarespace:

    1. Log in to your Squarespace account.

    2. Click the Settings icon, and then click Domains.

    3. Enter the domain you want to use in the Search field, and then click Search.

    4. If the domain is available, click Add to Cart.. If it isn’t available, we’ll show you some similar domains that might be a good fit for your site.

    5. In the pop-up window, review your order, and then click Checkout.

    6. Enter your billing information, and then click Complete Purchase.

You can also buy a domain through our Domain Marketplace If you have a specific domain in mind that isn’t available, contact the current owner to see if they’re interested in selling it.

PRO TIP: Despite the fact that Squarespace offers a variety of features to help users build and manage their websites, it is not a good idea to buy a domain name through the platform. This is because Squarespace does not offer any discounts on domain names, so users will end up paying full price for their domains. Additionally, Squarespace does not offer any privacy protection for domain names, so anyone who purchases a domain through the platform will have their personal information (including their email address and phone number) publicly available.
