Domain Transfer - 5 @ instead of 4

Hi, I've got a problem with connecting the website with my own hosting and domain. There's an additional IP address and its Required Data form is blank. I've already matched the remaining four in the DNS but I can't figure out what to do with the fifth. Screenshots attached. Thanks!328524604_Zrzutekranu2022-06-30o21_04_34.thumb.png.e80ae3c8a67d34785bba10aa3ed9d940.png1391362329_Zrzutekranu2022-06-30o21_05_19.thumb.png.abdf8d119839202e2b36f5ada98da086.png

This is because the record shouldn't exist in your DNS settings. If it still exists, it should be deleted.

Thanks for answering! But it appears in five of the records in DNS (ftp, mail, motacillastudio.com, pop, smtp). Should I change the IP of these records in DNS from 181.110.51.200 to one of the IP addresses from Squarespace? Or just delete them all?

The '@' is shorthand for the domain name. If your domain name is motacillastudio.com, this is the one to remove.

So I've been trying to configure my site with Squarespace.  My domain is .lat so it cannot be transferred to Squarespace and is currently managed by Namecheap.  When I try to connect I see this and as you see the last record is just empty.   All other records are currently found.   I don't know if this has to do with it but I get a SSL error as well.  Any thoughts?image.thumb.png.50125d88ab81703cbaedea59442481f6.png

The same applies. You need to log on to Namecheap and delete the record shown above in red.
