  1. Howdy, folks—I’m looking for a subdomain superhero, since I’ve read the same help articles about 10 times each, and all I’ve managed to do is confuse myself. Here’s what I’m flailing about trying to figure out: Is it possible to point a secondary Squarespace domain to a subdomain of my main Squarespace site—while keeping the secondary domain URL displayed? Basically, I have one totally different content section on my Squarespace site that I would like to be accessed from a wholly different URL. So, if my primary site/domain is, say www.CoolExampleSite.com, could I point my secondary Squarespace domain RadExampleSite.com to subdomain.CoolExampleSite.com, while preserving “RadExampleSite.com” in the browser’s URL bar? I’m too dumb to figure it out, and I’d be grateful for any assistance. THANK YOU!
  2. Hello, I recently joined the site Art Store Fronts to add print on demand options for my art. In order to add a "shop now" tab to my Squarespace homepage, I need to add my ArtStorefronts page as a subdomain to my existing Squarespace page. Any idea how I do this? Thanks, Derrick
  3. I have a website on another server and want to leave it that way, and I want to create a subdomain that will point to squarespace I need to set the A record in DNS to the IP of the squarespace server but I can't find that IP I only have this in DNS settings And I need this (what red arrows are pointing to). Where can I find it, how can I make it work? PLEASE HELP!!!
  4. How do I do that? I know how to forward blog.mydomain.com to mydomain.com/blog....but i don't want it to appear to users as such....i'd rather it appear as blog.mydomain.com Is that possible?
  5. Site URL: https://www.mertonlawyers.com.au Hi team, We have an existing website https://www.mertonlawyers.com.au which we are looking to add a seperate part of the business to. Is it possible to create an entirely new SquareSpace site using a sub domain of the existing site? For example could we create and host a seperate site at mertonlawyers.com.au/private-services while maintaining the existing mertonlawyers.com.au site? Hope this makes sense. Appreciate any guidance!
  6. Site URL: https://www.chrisspecialtyfoods.com/ My client wants to migrate ecommerce functionality to Shopify. The idea is that the "Shop" button redirects to shop.[site].com, instead of [site].com/shop. Shop.[site].com would be on Shopify, and the rest would on Squarespace. I'm not great with DNS stuff and have been stumped on this project for many hours now.
  7. Site URL: https://expertlypaul.com I would like to set up subdomains on my primary domain expertlypaul.com in order to create distinct site experiences for users coming for very different purposes—specifically career coaching and freelance writing. My hope was to be able to have writing.expertlypaul.com be an actual link I could send people to but it seems the only option is to forward subdomains somewhere else. Is this an odd limitation within Squarespace DNS? I've worked with plenty of companies and organizations in the past where they have blog.domain.com as the actual landing page URL (and normally a link in the main nav that allows them to go back to the primary domain) for their blog and the main nav is their blog topics (as opposed to the navigation menu you would find on their primary website like "about," "contact us," etc.)
  8. Hello, I want to build a multilingual website, I'm thinking of paying for 2 separate websites and I want to configure them under 2 subdomains as follows: en.website.com (Main site, default language) fr.website.com (Copy of the main site, secondary language) My idea is to finalize the full English version under en.website.com, then go duplicate the full site in one click, then go configure it and translate it into French under fr.website.com. Here are my questions: 1 - Is it possible to configure the main domain website.com to the main site en.website.com? 2 - Is it possible to configure the secondary site under the fr.website.com subdomain? 3 - Does Google consider this structure SEO Friendly? In the end, I want to have 2 sites under 2 subdomains under 1 main domain name. Thanks
  9. Site URL: https://verbesserlich.com Hey! I created a landing page on covertkit and want to use a custom domain, a subdomain from my Squarespace account, namely exy.verbeserlich.com If I enter the URL (exy.verbesserlich.com) in the browser, my landing page already loads. That's great. However, I have not yet inserted DNS names (which I received from ConvertKit) on my Squarespace Account Settings, because an error shows up: "Wir konnten diesen Eintrag aufgrund widersprüchlicher CNAME-Einträge nicht speichern." - "We could not save this entry due to conflicting CNAME entries". The problem ist, that if I cannot enter the DNS names, the URL does not get verified on Convertkit. Therefore I cannot further use it to create pages like exy.verbesserlich.com/xxxx Anyone has an idea what I am doing wrong? Thanks! Lisa
  10. Site URL: https://perch-red-f8jd.squarespace.com pass: commons Currently building this site, will eventually transfer over existing third party domain. I would like to set up a third party subdomain which just one of the landing pages (/jack-green) will live on. For example, the whole site will run under www.example.com and that one page will be jackgreen.example.com Is there a way to do this with a third party sub domain?
  11. Site URL: https://acensisec.com Last week we noticed that the weglot platform was no longer opperating and the subdomain URL was coming up with a access denied notice. We logged onto the Squarespace settings to verify that the DNS and Code injection was correct; we also logged onto the Weglot platform and could see that the option for subdomains needed to be re-selected and the process to set-up subdomains completed - we have waited for 36hr+ and no luck. We haven't made any updates to the squarespace account. Our current status is that we have no weglot button on the website and the subdomains are no being identified by weglot. I have been on support chats with squarespace and they can verify that I have entered in the data correctly; I am currently struggling with weglot support as it's only a email response which can take upto 12hrs to respond and the information shared is just verifiing what we already know and it's not exactly a friendly dialog. We are stuck and not sure if this is due to the squarespace website being on version 7.0 is the problem. Any help would be highly appriecated.
  12. Site URL: https://www.foxxfarm.com/ Hi, I have a client site with the Lodgify search bar embedded on the home page. I want to have the checkout happen on our website itself without redirecting to Lodgify. For this, I've created a new sub-domain with my domain provider (Google) and linked it to Lodgify, but I am getting an error there...has anyone done this before? Would appreciate some pointers. Thanks!
  13. Has anyone used Cloudflare with their Squarespace domain before? I'm trying to connect my domain to Cloudflare so that I can use my subdomain on Kajabi and continue to run ads on Facebook. Any help is great! I've been trying to follow both Kajabi's walkthrough and the vendor-specific DNS records on Cloudflare's website, but it's proving difficult since I don't have all of the corresponding DNS records that Cloudflare shows in their walkthrough.

  14. I have an SS at www.mysite.co.uk and want to maintain that, but also host an entirely separate (React + Firebase) site at, say, mysubdomain.mysite.co.uk, but this doesn't seem possible with the subdomain controls SS offers. Therefore I'm wondering if I can do one of the two following things (or possibly other suggestions if you have them): log into Tucows myself to administrate my own DNS etc. stuff; and/or transfer away from SS (as per the link listed below) and thereafter administrate my own DNS etc. stuff myself? https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205812338-Transferring-a-domain-away-from-Squarespace Thank you for taking the time to read jbm
  15. Hi folks... I've read all the help with creating subdomains, etc, and it's still not clear to me. We have one website with SS. I'd like to create a subdomain, like: BLOG.ourdomain.com and have it send the user to a completely different set of pages from ourdomain.com. Is that possible? Thanks...
  16. Hi I am trying to do the following: www.abc.website.com I added www.abc as a normal subdomain but it is not working. Is it possible to do this in Squarespace?
  17. My site is on Squarespace 7.1 Is it all possible for a subdomain with two dots like (for example a similar URL of subdomain.root.com) to be directed of forwarded to a certain page on the same site. So subdomain.root.com then is directed to root.com/page. I know I've read on a support page you can't but I thought from prior version of Squarespace you could go to a "presets" to redirect to a specific page in "Advanced Settings". See link below. Has "URL mapping" replaced this? Is it possible to redirect in the URL mappings in this manner? https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/214767107 Currently, I have subdomain.root.com just pointing to the homepage of root.com. Thanks for any help!
  18. Greetings, I am working on a website for a client that has a video streaming service. We would like to have the user login be the root domain. i.e. streamtv[.]com I also have other pages and a menu nav that I would like on a subdomain. biz[.]streamtv[.]com Is this possible on SquareSpace? I know how to do it on other hosting platforms. Thanks! (ps. those domains are fictitious)
  19. Site URL: https://www.supernetwastebasket.com/ I'm not sure how to tag this question. I have built two websites on squarespace. Just for my own businesses. Now I want to merge these under one umbrella website. Do I need to start over or is there some way to migrate existing websites to a new site? I will build a new site and I would like to have, for example, www.supernetwastebasket.com (one of my existing sites), be a subsection of the new site. is this possible?
  20. Site URL: https://iamclaudius.com I recently launched my Spring merch site now that tI have 10K subs on YouTube. I am also trying to connect to my Squarespace site. I was trying to set up a custom domain via Spring site but keep getting error on the Squarespace side. My guess is I need to use a subdomain? Not sure how to approach it. Any help would be appreciated.
  21. Site URL: http://http/yourhistoryapps.com I have set up a website to provide access to my Progressive Web App samples. I am using a PWA builder (Thorium Builder) that requires that the server has a PHP engine with the SQLite3 extension enabled. Is this configuration available on the SquareSpace personal plan or do I need to upgrade to a higher level plan to import and format my PWA? Thanks.
  22. Site URL: https://www.maineinternet.community My site is hosted elsewhere and the platform requires I add the www subdomain, which is fine with me. However, I want the root domain to automatically redirect to the www subdomain. All the settings I have tried do not work. The help instructions assume I am redirecting a subdomain and not the root. How to I get things set so using maineinternet.community results in landing at www.maineinternet.community instead of producing an error the way it does now?
  23. I have a client who currently has their domain and emails (12 email addresses) on a private server. They want to transfer the domain into Squarespace and move the emails into GSuite. Has anyone ever done this or know where to find resources on this? They are very adamant about not wanting to lose email services or prior messages. They are currently using Outlook to access their email but want to move into Google. Thank you all in advance!
  24. Site URL: http://www.biruvia.com Hello, I have what I thought should be a fairly easy task, but I can't find anything in the forwarding/pointing/redirecting articles in square space that covers this specifically. Here is what I'd like to do: Point/Forward/Redirect "swamimosa.com" to "biruvia.com/swamimosa" Both domains are managed through Squarespace and the website "biruvia.com" is hosted through Squarespace. I've gone into advanced settings for "swamimosa.com" and followed the instructions for adding a preset for "Forward Domain." I then add the URL "biruvia.com/swamimosa", but the website doesn't forward. If I set the Forward Domain from "swamimosa.com" to "biruvia.com" it does work, but I want to forward to a subdomain instead of a domain. How can I do this? Thanks!
  25. Site URL: https://standrewschurch.org.nz Hi, We just upgraded from version 5 to version 7.1. We finally went live few days ago. However I noticed that if we type with 'www', it always goes to the Squarespace "You're almost there". The DNS settings are all green and correct. Also I had to un-check "Use WWW Prefix". With this option checked, the site always showed "You're almost there" page. So to summarise: With "Use WWW Prefix" checked: standrewschurch.org.nz -> shows "You're almost there" page. www.standrewschurch.org.nz -> shows "You're almost there" page. With "Use WWW Prefix" unchecked: standrewschurch.org.nz -> working. www.standrewschurch.org.nz -> shows "You're almost there" page. What we want is that the website should show correctly with and without 'www'. Thank you so much.
