All Squarespace Domains are officially hosted by our registrar, Tucows, and managed through your Squarespace site.
We’ve traditionally offered one free domain with the purchase of an annual Squarespace plan, and now anyone with a paid Squarespace site can register domains for $20 to $70 per year each.
Can I host my Squarespace site elsewhere?
All Squarespace plans include hosting for your site and its content in addition to unlimited bandwidth and storage. If you own a domain from a third-party provider, you can transfer it to Squarespace, or you can leave it registered and hosted with its provider and connect it to your Squarespace site.
Do I need a host for my domain?
In order to get a website active and live on the internet, you need to host a website. If you are seeking to build a website without taking web hosting services, registering domain names will serve no purpose. Web hosting is basically the space that you buy on a web server to store your website files.
Can you buy a domain and host it somewhere else?
yes you can buy domain and hosting from two different providers and link them to see the website online. When you purchase the hosting account or domain name they will provide you with control panel to manage your domain or hosting account.
Can you transfer a domain name from squarespace?
Yes, this is possible. However, if you’re moving your site to a different provider, we recommend transferring your domain to them instead. If you want to keep your domain registered with Squarespace and direct it to a third-party site, you can forward it or point it.
Does squarespace own your content?
When you upload content to Squarespace, you still own it. You do, however, give us permission to use it in ways necessary to provide, improve, promote and protect our services.
