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.

Note: If the domain is past the five-day grace period, you can switch to a different primary domain instead. Follow our steps for moving your site to a new domain.

Before you begin

A primary domain can't be removed. Your primary domain is the domain that always appears in your visitors' address bar and has a Primary label next to it in the Domains panel.

If you want to remove your primary domain, first set a different domain as the primary domain. You can always change this later.

Step 1 - Open the Domains panel

In the Home Menu, click Settings, and 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.
