Hi

I'm trying to connect a Squarespace site to names.co.uk - not names.com.

The instructions I found all talk about names.com having a squarespace dns template, names.co.uk doesn't have that.

I can edit the DNS records but it does not accept @ as a host name.

"Host name for A record 3 is invalid
Host name for A record 4 is invalid
Host name for A record 5 is invalid
Host name for A record 6 is invalid."

Any help would be much appreciated.

For the root A records, leave the hostname blank (instead of @).
