Mapping Your Own Domain to Your Squarespace Site

Part of the Squarespace 6 For Dummies Cheat Sheet

If you already own a domain name that you want to use with your Squarespace site, you will need to map that domain's settings to point to Squarespace. Mapping your domain to Squarespace can seem like a scary task, but you need to know only a few settings. Your domain host (where your domain is currently registered) can help you modify your domain's DNS settings so that the domain points to Squarespace.

Each domain host is slightly different in regards to how they map DNS settings, but generally you will need to modify the domain's DNS CNAME and A records. Set the CNAME setting to

    www.squarespace6.com

and set the A record to

    65.39.205.57

After you have mapped your domain to Squarespace, you simply have to log in to your site and claim your domain by going to Site Manager, Settings, Domains.
