Are you thinking about moving your domain from Shopify to Squarespace?

There are a few things you need to know before you make the switch. In this article, we’ll outline the steps you need to take to transfer your domain from Shopify to Squarespace.

If you’re using a custom domain with Shopify, you can transfer it to Squarespace. You’ll need to unlock the domain and get an authorization code from your current registrar. Once you have those, you can add the domain to your Squarespace site.

Here are the detailed instructions:

  1. Unlock your domain. To start the process of transferring your domain, you’ll need to contact your current registrar and unlock the domain. This will allow you to transfer the domain to another registrar.

  2. Get an authorization code. Once your domain is unlocked, you’ll need to get an authorization code.

    This is also sometimes called a transfer key or EPP code. You’ll need this code when you add the domain to your Squarespace site.

  3. Add your domain to Squarespace. Now that you have your authorization code, you’re ready to add your domain to Squarespace. When you add the domain, we’ll automatically begin the process of transferring it.

That’s it! Once you’ve added yourdomain.com to your site, we’ll start transferring it from Shopify. The whole process can take up to 10 days.

PRO TIP: If you are considering transferring your domain from Shopify to Squarespace, be aware that there are some potential risks involved. First and foremost, your domain could be lost or stolen during the transfer process. Additionally, if you do not properly configure your DNS settings, your website could become inaccessible. Finally, if you are not familiar with the Squarespace platform, you may have difficulty transferring your website and its contents over. If you are unsure about any of these risks, it is best to consult with a professional before proceeding.
