Avoiding Not Secure Page When Connecting Domain

Recommended Posts

I am planning to connect a domain from GoDaddy to Squarespace but is there a page I can design and display that visitors see while the connection is processing instead of a "This is Not a Secure" website?

There are a number of things you can do 3-4+ days in advance to reduce the period of 'downtime' during a site or domain migration but there isn't a way to display a friendly "we're moving" type page to avoid SSL errors during the swap.

Would you suggest transferring instead of connecting domains?

It won't make any difference to the downtime, it just depends on who you prefer to host the domain. However, if you plan to transfer it to Squarespace you'll want to do it at least 7-10 days before the planned migration because the transfer process will also take some time.
