Can You Transfer Domain From Squarespace?

Last updated on December 25, 2022 @ 6:12 pm

As one of the most popular website builders on the market, Squarespace offers users a lot of features and flexibility. But what happens if you want to leave Squarespace? Can you transfer your domain from Squarespace to another provider?

The short answer is yes, you can transfer your domain away from Squarespace. However, there are a few things to keep in mind before you do so.

First, if your domain is registered with Squarespace, you’ll need to unlock it before you can initiate a transfer. Second, Squarespace domains cannot be transferred to another registrar if they’re within 60 days of expiration. And finally, there is a $20 fee to transfer a domain out of Squarespace.

Assuming your domain meets the criteria mentioned above, transferring your domain away from Squarespace is fairly simple. Just follow these steps:

    1. Log in to your Squarespace account and go to the Domains page.

    2. Find the domain you want to transfer and click the … menu next to it.

    3. Select Transfer Domain from the drop-down menu.

    4. Enter the Auth Code for your domain. This can be found in the Domain Settings panel under Security & Privacy.

    5. Click Start Transfer.

    6. Enter your contact information and payment details when prompted by the receiving registrar during the transfer process.

    7. Once the transfer is complete, you’ll receive confirmation from both registrars.

PRO TIP: If you are considering transferring your domain from Squarespace, be aware that there are potential risks involved. There have been reports of people losing their domain names or having their website taken down after transferring their domain to another provider. Make sure you research any provider you are considering transferring your domain to, and only transfer your domain if you are absolutely sure you want to do so.
