Renaming a Squarespace Domain

You can change your new Squarespace Domain name within five days of registration. This involves starting over: cancelling the domain you just registered and replacing it with a new domain name. After five days, your domain name is permanent and can't be renamed.

We measure this five-day grace period to the minute. For example, if you registered a domain at 8:00am on January 1, you can cancel until January 6 at 7:59am.

Before you begin

Step 1 - Open the Domains panel

In the Home Menu, click Settings, then click Domains.

You can also press the ? key while any panel is open and search domains

Click the domain you'd like to change.

Step 2 - Cancel the domain

Scroll down and click Cancel Domain.

Step 3 - Register a new domain

If you cancel the domain within five days of registration, you’ll receive a refund, and the domain will no longer point to your site. A domain can’t be cancelled after this five-day grace period.

To replace the domain, register a new one.
