Connecting a Yahoo or Aabaco domain to your Squarespace site

If you purchased a domain from Yahoo or Aabaco and want to keep it registered with them, you can connect it to your site by following this guide. In this process, you'll change a few settings in your Aabaco account. After completing these steps, your domain will stay registered with Aabaco, but it will connect to your Squarespace site. Before you begin, review our requirements for connecting a third-party domain.

Consejo: Te recomendamos que transfieras tu dominio a Squarespace en lugar de conectarlo. Aquí tienes algunas razones por las que podrías querer transferir tu dominio:

  • Puedes trasladar todos los aspectos de administración a tu cuenta de Squarespace, para que no tengas que pagarlo por medio de un tercero.
  • Tu dominio podría calificar para recibir un año de alojamiento gratis.
  • Squarespace puede ayudarte directamente con cualquier problema con tu dominio.

Tu dominio debe ser compatible con la transferencia. Conoce más sobre las diferencias entre transferir y conectar o comenzar con una transferencia desde aquí.

Note: This guide covers the steps to connect a domain originally registered through Yahoo (or registered through Aabaco since December 2015) to Squarespace from an Aabaco account.

Antes de comenzar

  • Before going through the steps below, review our requirements for connecting a third-party domain.
  • Yahoo Small Business recently rebranded as Aabaco Small Business. If you have a domain registered through Yahoo, you'll manage your DNS records from a new Aabaco account. To learn how to log into your Aabaco account and access your settings, visit Aabaco's documentation.
  • If your plan with Aabaco includes site hosting, you may need to switch to a domain-only plan to connect your domain to Squarespace. You can review these plan options on Aabaco's Domains page

Paso 1 - Comienza la conexión en Squarespace

Para conectar tu dominio, comienza en el panel de Dominios:

  1. In the Home Menu, click Settings, and then click Domains. You can also press the ? key while any panel is open and search domains.
  2. Haz clic en Use a Domain I Own (Usar un Dominio Que Poseo).
  3. Ingresa el nombre de dominio completo que conectarás en la casilla nombre de dominio, y luego haz clic en continuar
  4. Click Connect From Provider.
Nota: Si ves un mensaje que dice "Este dominio ya está conectado con otra página de Squarespace", revisa las demás páginas web de Squarespace para descubrir dónde está conectado el dominio. Después desconéctalo de ese sitio.
  1. Select Yahoo from the drop-down menu, even if you registered your domain with Aabaco.
  2. Haz clic en conectar dominio.
  3. En el mensaje que aparece, haz clic en aceptar.
  4. Se abrirá un nuevo panel con los registros que creaste en tu cuenta de Aabaco. Mantén abierto este panel para tu referencia.

Paso 2 - Inicia sesión en Aabaco

Go to www.aabacosmallbusiness.com, click Access your account, and log in. Click Domains.

You'll now copy the records from the Domain panel so your Aabaco domain correctly links to your Squarespace site.

Note: Don't delete MX records during this process. MX Records connect your email address, an deleting them could interfere with your email service.

Step 3 - Add the first CNAME

In the first line of your Squarespace DNS Settings, copy the unique code that appears directly below the Host column. The unique code is a random string of numbers and letters that must point to verify.squarespace.com.

In your Aabaco account, click Add next to A and CNAME Records.

  • In the Source box, paste the unique code from Host column of the Domains panel.
  • In the Destination box, enter verify.squarespace.com
  • Click Add.

You should now have a CNAME with your unique Host code pointing to verify.squarespace.com.

Note: If you don't add this CNAME, or if it's entered incorrectly, the domain will unlink from your site after 15 days. If this happens, you can start over to reconnect the domain.

Step 4 - Add the second CNAME

In the second line of your Squarespace DNS Settings, www appears directly below the Host column. Many domain providers use www as the host value for this second CNAME, but Aabaco uses * instead. You'll still see www in your Domains panel and Squarespace will still read your * entry as correct. This record must point to ext-cust.squarespace.com.

In your Aabaco account, click Add next to A and CNAME Records again.

  • In the Source box, enter *
  • In the Destination box, enter ext-cust.squarespace.com
  • Click Submit.
Note: If you have an existing CNAME set up with a * Source, edit this CNAME so the Destination is ext-cust.squarespace.com

You should now have a CNAME with * pointing to ext-cust.squarespace.com.

Step 5 - Add A Records

In the last four lines of your Squarespace DNS Settings, you'll see four IP addresses in the Required Data column. Using the steps below, create four A Records in Aabaco matching these values.

In your Aabaco account, click Add next to A and CNAME Records again.

  • In the Source box, leave it blank.
  • In the Destination box, enter 198.185.159.144
  • Click Submit.

Repeat this process to create three more records for these IP addresses:

  • 198.185.159.145
  • 198.49.23.144
  • 198.49.23.145
Note: If your Aabaco settings only allow you to enter one A record, use 198.185.159.144

You should now have four A records pointing to the following IP addresses:

  • 198.185.159.144
  • 198.185.159.145
  • 198.49.23.144
  • 198.49.23.145
Note: If you have existing A Records, edit any with a blank Source so the Destination matches the values above. If you see other A Records in your account that don’t match what’s shown in this guide:
  • Host: blank - Delete only if it doesn't match what’s shown in this guide.
  • Host: Mail or Email - Don’t delete. This connects to your email address. Deleting it could interfere with your email service.

Step 6 - Refresh

After changing your records, return to your Squarespace DNS Settings and click Refresh below the records.

The Current Data column in the panel will start to update and show if your records are entered correctly. It can take up to 72 hours for this information to process.

To go the previous panel, click the arrow in the top-left corner.

Step 7 - Wait and test

Si todos los registros se ingresaron correctamente, tu dominio se conectará con el sitio dentro de las 24 horas. En ocasiones, puede tomar hasta 72 horas. Visita el panel de Dominios en cualquier momento para comprobar tu progreso.

When the domain is correctly linked, the domain will appear in the Domains panel with aConnected label.

Troubleshoot with the DNS record checker

If we detect that your records weren’t set up properly, your domain will appear in the Domains panel with the message Can’t verify domain ownership.

To troubleshoot, use the DNS checker tool in the Domains panel to see the exact CNAME and A Records to fix with your domain provider.

Click the domain in the Domains panel, and then click DNS Settings. For detailed instructions, visit Checking your domain mapping records.
