Domain mapping with eNom

You can link your own domain name with your Squarespace site using our Domain Mapping feature. This feature is available to all plan levels.

The following instructions are for configuring your domain in eNom's control panel. These instructions assume you have already registered a domain with eNom, and can take up to 48 hours to propagate through the Internet.

Note: You must use eNom's nameservers in order to successfully map a domain.

Step 1 - Access Your Domain Control Panel

Under the Domains menu, select my domains and click on the domain you'd like to configure. This should bring you to your Domain Control Panel page.

Step 2 - Access DNS Settings

Under the Domain Over area, click the Host Records link. This will take you to the Domain Name Host Records page.

Step 3 - Add a CNAME

Add www under Host Name.

Select CNAME (Alias) from the drop-down menu under Record Type.

Add ext5-cust.squarespace.com under Address.

Step 4 - Add A Record Mapping

In the Edit Host Records panel, find the record with @ (none) in its Host Name field.

Next to @ (none), ensure A (Address) is selected in the Record Type drop-down menu.

Add 198.185.159.160 to the Address field.

Repeat this process three more times using the following values:

198.185.159.161

198.49.23.160

198.49.23.161

Click Save.

Step 5 - Link Your Domain To Your Squarespace Site

Login to your Squarespace website. Navigate to the [Website Management > Structure > Custom Domain] area. Click the Link Domain option and add your custom domain to the domain URL field.

Once you've linked your domain it will appear in the Custom Domain area immediately. Both the www and non-www version of your domain are automatically added and you can toggle your domain to display the version you prefer by clicking the Toggle WWW link next to the domain.

Note: DNS updates can take up to 48 hours to fully propagate on the web depending on your provider. You can use these steps to check the status of your domain at any time.
