You can add Cloudflare to your site for additional security.
If you’re using Cloudflare’s security, traffic, or domain hosting services, you can connect your domain using the tips in this guide.
Do you need Cloudflare's security and traffic services?
Most Squarespace sites don't need Cloudflare's services. This is because Squarespace protects your site and its content by offering free SSL certificates for all domains. We automatically back up your content to multiple Tier III data centers across the United States. Additionally, Squarespace is built to support high-traffic sites.
If you have advanced needs, you can connect your domain to Cloudflare for additional protection.
Connect your domain to Cloudflare
When you connect your Squarespace domain to Cloudflare, you’ll need to change your domain’s nameservers. For detailed steps, visit Nameservers and DNSSEC for Squarespace domains.
If you have a third-party domain, contact your domain provider for help. You may also find Cloudflare's Help Center useful while working on the connection.
