I Need to have 2 DNS Domains point to my same website


Recommended Posts

Hello square space community forum,

John Kooz here.

Working on a very superb project right now!

 I am currently working on publishing my six ebooks for free on my website.  The top-level domain is "http:www.johnkuczmarski.com", but I need the top-level domain to be "http://www.johnkooz.com".  Both demain names are mine, but the DNS I purchased through the horrible interface of go daddy (Square space is a superlative web design tool compared to godaddy.com, IMHO!), I fret I will have to deal with the godaddy.com site and their horrible interface.

I appreciate any insights.  Thank you.

Sincerely,

John Kooz

I have navigated to wretchedly annoying site of godaddy.com.  I am on the

"Transfer from your godaddy page"

but when I enter my email address as the account http://www.johnkooz.com is going to (my square space registrar), the page doesn't reload.  That page didn't give me the opportunity to use SquareSpace's authorization code that they provided me with.  

 

I appreciate any help.  I may, unfortunately, have to post to godaddy forum.  I'll try to avoid that.

 

Thank you!

 

Sincerely,

John Kooz

 This is repointing domain instructions as opposed to moving a go daddy domain to Squarespace.

This is transferring a go daddy domain to squarespce, which can take longer to do:

Dear Derricksrandomviews,

Thanks for offering to help me out.  However, I think I have it all solved and cleared to go with go daddy.  Unfortunately, because of some preposterous checkbox I ticked when registering johnkooz.com and diysamurai.com on godaddy.com, I am unable (something with ICANN and I know what that is) to utilize those two domains - johnkooz.com and diysamurai.com - until after waiting 60 days.   If things go a planned, my domains johnkooz.com and diysamurai.com will be unlocked from go daddy (I have already made the transfer in progress through Squarespace) on April 24, 2021 (60 days from now).

 

Do I really have to wait 60 days?  Such a restriction feels preposterous to me to have to wait 60 days to transfer my own domain names to Squarespace.  It's godaddy.com's fault.  

 

 Thank you for taking to the time to respond to my query.

Sincerely,

John Kooz

The 60 day wait period is reasonable. It sucks when your are legit and everything is on the up and up though.

Back in the day there were some unfortunate incidents where people had their domains stolen from them. This happened in some cases because a key person was like on vacation and a notification about the domain expiring came through but they didn't respond to the issue. Then everyone finds that the domain is now owned by somebody else and the somebody is trying to sell you your domain back to you for big dollars.
