Introduction to Domain Mapping

This guide is intended for those who have already purchased a custom domain name. It will walk you through the steps of mapping a domain name to your Squarespace website. Use the links at the bottom to navigate between steps.

If you have not yet purchased a custom domain, you will need to do so using a 3rd-party domain provider like GoDaddyNetticaNetwork SolutionsDotster, or any other 3rd-party domain provider who can offer you Full DNS Services with your domain hosting account.

If you are on a yearly plan, you can also register a brand new domain name through Squarespace. We have a guide on registering a domain name through Squarespace here.

We have instructions for mapping your domain with several specific domain providers at the end of this walkthrough.

Note: You will need to use your domain provider's default nameservers in order to successfully map your domain to your Squarespace site.

Note: It is not possible to map a custom domain to a single, specific page within your Squarespace site. All mapped domains will point to the site itself and resolve to the domain configured as the Primary.
