Transferring a domain and email


Recommended Posts

Site URL: http://www.jawbonebrewing.com

Hi there,

Hoping I can sanity check this with you guys before I make a big mistake!

I am hoping to transfer an existing domain that I registered with Namecheap in 2019 over to Squarespace (I have a .com and co.uk domain - more on that later). I have pretty much built the site and looking to set a holding/parked page live while I finish it off. 

Before I do so, I'd like to add professional email addresses to my Namecheap account. It seems much cheaper than using G Suite through Squarespace (and the budget is really really tight for us right now - thanks Covid). 

So:

- am I ok to transfer my .com domain over to Squarespace, but keep my .co.uk domain with Namecheap (and permanently redirect that link to the .com page)? And will I be charged to register this domain with Squarespace? (I read somewhere it is $20 but I might be entitled to the first year free?)

- am I ok to set up my email addresses in Namecheap, even if I'm transferring the domain to Squarespace? I don't want to transfer it and then find I owe G Suite £15 a month for my three email addresses. 

Thanks so much for your help, and apologies if this seems like a very basic question... I feel very out of my comfort zone!! 

Emma

You can create your own page to do this. See https://support.squarespace.com/hc/en-us/articles/205814388-Creating-a-landing-page

Hi Emma If money is tight, don't transfer the domains at all - connect them instead. There won't be any difference for visitors to your site, and you won't receive any additional charges.
