Renaming a Squarespace domain

You can change your new Squarespace domain name within five days of registration. This involves canceling the domain immediately 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 - Cancel the domain immediately

If you purchased the domain within the past five days, you can cancel the domain immediately: 

  1. In the Home menu, click Settings, then click Domains.
  2. Click the domain you'd like to change.
  3. Scroll down and click Cancel Domain.

After canceling the domain, you'll receive a refund and the domain will no longer point to your site. To learn more about refunds, visit Refund policies.

Step 2 - Register a new domain

To replace the domain, register a new one in the Domains panel.
