Hey,

I'm looking to see if something is possible with SquareSpace before we agree to migrate over. 

We work with several partners who insist on doing validations with a file on the root domain rather than the preferred TXT record validation on DNS. For this we have to put a file in a folder at the root of the website in a folder called /.well-known. The file for example would be called test.devicemenagement and it would contain a text string for validation. 

This would then enable various partners to validate us on www.domain.com/.well-known/test.devicemanagemant

To further confuse this we need to add in a MIME type or contact to make sure the file extension of *.devicemanagement is downloaded as a JSON file.

Does anyone have any ideas of this is possible with Squarespace?

Thanks

Michael

I need to upload a JSON file to my site and assign a custom link: /.well-known/did.json. If I understand correctly, that is not possible.

It is not possible.

Squarespace is a serverless platform, so this means you don't have access to a server and cannot place files in URL paths with prefixes like /.well-known/. On Squarespace, all files are store in /s/.

You'll need to host the file on a different web host or use an alternative method of achieving your goal.

I have the same question, have you  found a solution or work-around in the meantime?

Hi all,

I'm trying to setup what Microsoft calls "Decentralized ID" in Entra (formerly Azure AD). As part of that I need to upload a json file to a specific URI in my site ((https://ariaconsulting.net/.well-known/did.json) and MS will then verify it. How can I accomplish this?

SQS support is utterly USELESS because I wasn't happy with their exceedingly limited template sites and had mine designed and built using the custom mode which they use as a shield to avoid supporting anything.

Thanks!
