Do I need to buy SSL from GoDaddy? Or will this be taken care by Squarespace?

Squarespace provide an SSL certificate for the website for free. You don't need to buy one for the website.

I'm in a similar situation. I bought a Domain via GoDaddy and linked it to my squarespace account, but I can't seem to use the free SSL Certificate via Squarespace. It's just saying unavailable as it's trying to look for it at GoDaddy.

How can I resolve this? I don't want to pay $400 at GoDaddy if I can get it for free with Sqaurespace. 

I'm finding Squarespace chat function difficult to get a response.

A couple of quick questions?

Are the DNS entries correct for your domain? The CNAME and A records will need to be correct before the SSL will be issued.

How long ago did you configure them? It can take 24-72 hours.

If you need help, please share the domain name with us.
