Last updated on October 1, 2022 @ 10:26 am

If you have an existing domain name, you can use it with your Squarespace site. You can connect it to your site in just a few clicks and start using it right away. There are a few things to keep in mind when you’re connecting an existing domain to Squarespace, though. First, we recommend that you transfer your domain to Squarespace. This will give you the best possible experience with our platform and make sure that your domain is set up correctly. Second, you’ll need to make sure that your domain is unlocked.

If it’s not, you’ll need to contact your current registrar to unlock it. Once it’s unlocked, you can add it to your Squarespace site. And lastly, you’ll need to set up DNS records for your domain. This is what tells the internet where your website is located. You can find detailed instructions on how to do this in our help center.

PRO TIP: You should be aware that transferring an existing domain to Squarespace may result in the loss of any email accounts associated with that domain. Additionally, there is a risk that your site may experience downtime during the transfer process.
