If you already have a domain, you can absolutely use Squarespace! There are two ways to do this:
- Transfer your domain to Squarespace: This will allow you to manage all aspects of your domain, including billing and DNS settings, from within your Squarespace account. To transfer your domain, you will need to contact your current domain registrar and initiate the transfer process. Squarespace will provide you with a transfer code that you will need to provide to your registrar. The transfer process typically takes a few days to complete.
- Connect your domain to Squarespace: This will allow you to use your existing domain with your Squarespace site, but you will still need to manage your domain’s billing and DNS settings through your current domain registrar. To connect your domain to Squarespace, you will need to update your domain’s DNS settings to point to Squarespace’s nameservers. You can find instructions on how to do this on Squarespace’s website.
Once you have transferred or connected your domain to Squarespace, you can start building your website. You can use Squarespace’s drag-and-drop editor to create a custom website that meets your needs. Squarespace offers a wide range of features and templates to help you create a professional-looking website.
