Custom record question

For my custom record, what do I put for host?

It will depend on the purpose of your custom address ('A') record. Can you explain why you are adding it?

Squarespace usually add the root address records (those using "@" as the host) so you shouldn't normally need to add one using a custom record.

I'm trying to set my website E-Mail through Google Workspace

For Google Workspace, you'll need MX records (and possibly a TXT record for verification purposes). You should not require A records. For more information, see Adding Google Workspace MX records of use the interactive help features in Google Workspace to guide you.

Your most recent screenshot explains how to add a record for verification purposes. This is a TXT record with the value shown in the image.

The MX records I described in the Squarespace support article are required to allow mail to reach you. You'll need all of these records (the TXT record and the MX records) as a minimum. I cannot really provide much more assistance without knowing the domain name - and even then I won't have access to Squarespace or Google to check settings.

If you are still having difficulties and have obtained/purchased Google Workspace through Squarespace, then I recommend you contact Squarespace Customer Care as they will have access to your settings and can guide you.
