DYNADOT HELP

How can I point my domain to Squarespace?


To point your domain to Squarespace, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "Manage" from the "Domains" drop-down menu.
  3. Check the box next to the domain name(s) you wish to edit.
  4. Click on the "Set Name Servers" icon.
  5. Click on the "DNS" tab.
  6. You will need to create two records. In the "Domain Record (required)" section, select "Forward" from the drop-down menu and then enter http://www.yourdomainname.ext.
  7. In the "Subdomain Records (optional)" section, enter "www" as the subdomain, select "CNAME" from the drop-down and then enter ext.squarespace.com in the "IP Address or Target Host" box. Do not enter your actual domain name.
  8. Click on the "Save DNS" button to save your changes.

See Squarespace's directions on domain mapping with Dynadot for reference.
