Moving existing domain and Office 365 email to Squarespace


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Hoping someone can assist as I am new to Squarespace. I currently have a domain registered with GoDaddy but is currently pointing to a web hosting site (via nameservers), called SiteA, which is a Wordpress site.

Attached to this web hosting site, i.e. SiteA - I have MS Office 365 setup for all the emails against my domain.

I have now redone my site but using Squarespace, using my existing domain, for example: mydoamin.com

My questions are as follows:

1) What is required for me, so that my domain , which is registered with GoDaddy, instead now points to my new Squarespace website and not my existing SiteA website?

2) I assume I need to point the nameservers at GoDaddy, to instead point to Squarespace nameservers/my website - if so, what is required here? Squarespace nameservers?

3) With Office 365 residing within SiteA config, how do I access and instead use Squarespace to handle all my Office 365 emails, i.e.:

a) where in Squarespace can I setup DNS records for Office 365?
b) where do I setup TXT, MX and CNAME records inorder for Squarespace to work with Office 365?

Would really appreciate your help with above queries.

Thanks.
