.us domains

You can register, transfer, or connect domains ending in .us to Squarespace. These domains are a great option if you have a business or professional presence in the United States (US).

The .us country code top-level domain (ccTLD) follows different rules than most other TLDs we offer. This guide covers all these requirements and exceptions.

To find a domain's price, you can search for it on our domain name search page or your Domains panel.
