How do I remove the .squarespace from my URL address?

Recommended Posts

HI,

I'm new to squarespace so I'm still trying to get to grips with it.

At the moment my URL address reads mydomain.squarespace.com but can you please tell me how to remove the .squarespace? 

Will it automatically disappear when I go 'live'?

 

Thanks.

Every Squarespace site comes with a built-in domain (also known as a Squarespace URL) that looks like this:

yoursiteid.squarespace.com 

You'll always see your built-in domain in your browser address bar when you're logged in.

When you register, transfer, or connect a custom domain to your site, visitors will see that custom domain in their browser address bars instead of your built-in domain. If you don’t already have a custom domain, you can register one through Squarespace.

@paul2009 , I have connected my own domain. Squarespace shows that I have a different domain and using that domain takes me to my built-in domain, but it still shows the built-in.  how long does it take for the change to happen?  Is there a place I can look in SS to see that I did indeed connect my domain?
