Squarespace Domains

Registering a domain through Squarespace gives your website a professional look and avoids the need to register a domain with a third-party provider. All Squarespace Domains are officially hosted by our registrar, Tucows, and managed through your Squarespace site.

We’ve traditionally offered one free domain with the purchase of an annual Squarespace plan, and now anyone with a paid Squarespace site can register domains for $20 to $70 per year each. 

Register one free domain with an annual plan

All Squarespace accounts with annual billing terms include one custom domain for a year. To learn more, visit Free Squarespace Domain offer.

Buy Squarespace Domains

You can register additional domain names on any Squarespace plan. Each domain name is $20 to $70 per year. Pricing depends on the domain's TLD. As long as you have a credit card on file, you can purchase domain name(s) from Squarespace.

To learn more, visit Registering Squarespace Domains.

Available TLDs

A top-level domain (TLD) is the last part of a domain name after the "." You can choose from 200+ TLDs, including the most common options:

  • .com
  • .net
  • .org
  • .biz
  • .info
  • .mobi

What if I already have a domain?

If you own a domain name purchased through another provider (like GoDaddy or 1&1), you can transfer it to Squarespace and manage it through your site. If you can't transfer your domain, you can connect it instead by changing your DNS settings.

Limitations

Registration

  • You can't register a domain name that's already registered by someone else.
  • You can't register a domain without a Squarespace account.
  • You can't register premium domains with Squarespace. Also known as after-market, pre-registered, or secondary-market domains, premium domains are domains that someone previously registered and put back on the market for resale.

Naming

  • Squarespace Domains can have between 3 and 63 characters. Keep in mind that shorter domain names are easier to remember.
  • A Squarespace Domain can't have the word "squarespace" or "sqsp" in it.
  • Domains can only have letters, numbers, and hyphens. You can't add symbols like $ and *.
  • Domains with special characters (such as ü, é, or ñ) may not display properly on all browsers. If a browser can’t display the character, it will reformat the domain with extra characters and dashes. For example, the domain “übercool.de,” redirects to "xn--bercool-m2a.de” in unsupported browsers.

Full DNS Control, Whois Privacy, and SSL

  • All Squarespace Domains come with full DNS control. You can map your domain wherever you want or transfer it to a different provider (although we prefer if you keep it with Squarespace, of course).
  • You can transfer domains between Squarespace sites with our help.
  • We provide free Whois privacy to protect your personal information. With most registrars, domain privacy is a paid service that is added on to your subscription. With Squarespace, domain privacy is included.
  • All Squarespace Domains automatically generate a free SSL certificate to ensure your visitors can access your site securely.
