Connecting an IWantMyName domain to your Squarespace site

If you purchased a domain from IWantMyName 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 IWantMyName account. After completing these steps, your domain will stay registered with IWantMyName, 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.

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 iwantmyname.com from the drop-down menu.
  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 iwantmyname.com. Mantén abierto este panel para tu referencia.

Paso 2 - Inicia sesión en iwantmyname.com

Go to www.iwantmyname.com and log into your account, then click the domain you want to point to your Squarespace site.

Click Manage DNS Records.

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

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

Paso 3 - Agrega la configuración DNS con el preajuste incorporado

In the top navigation at iwantmyname.com, click Setup, then click Apps & Services in the drop-down menu.

Tip: You can also use the search function to find Squarespace in their built-in DNS presets list. 

Click the Squarespace logo.

Click Add Squarespace.

Paso 4 - Agrega un subdominio

Your iwantmyname.com account requires that you verify your Squarespace site by adding the unique code from your Domains panel. Click Create a subdomain for Squarespace.

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. You don't need to copy the required data (verify.squarespace.com), as iwantmyname.com adds this for you automatically.

In your iwantmyname.com account, paste this in the Unique verification code field, then click Install Squarespace

Note: If you don't add this verification code, 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.

You will see a prompt notifying you that the setup for Squarespace has started. The process may take a few minutes to complete.

Note: You don't need to add your domain to your Squarespace account, since you did that in the first step of this guide.

Paso 5 - Actualiza

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 6 - Wait and test

If all records are entered correctly, your domain will connect to your site within 24 hours. At times, it can take up to 72 hours. Visit the Domains panel at any time to check your progress.

Cuando el domino esté correctamente vinculado, aparecerá en el panel de Dominios con la etiqueta Connected (Conectado) .

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.
