Disconnecting a third-party domain

Follow these steps to disconnect a third-party domain from your site.

Before you begin

Step 1 - Disconnect the domain

  1. In the Home Menu, click Settings, and then click Domains. You can also press the ? key while any panel is open and search domains.
  2. Select the third-party domain to disconnect.
  3. Click Disconnect Domain.
  4. Click Yes to confirm the disconnection. 

Step 2 - Edit your DNS records

Disconnecting your domain won't change its DNS records. To completely disconnect your domain from a Squarespace site, log into your account with your domain provider and edit your DNS records there.

The steps to edit DNS records are different for each provider and site host. Please contact your domain provider or visit their documentation for help.

Until your domain's DNS records are changed, your domain will point to Squarespace, but visitors will see an error message instead of your site.
