Connecting a Bluehost domain to your Squarespace site

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

If you still prefer to connect your domain, we recommend contacting Bluehost to ensure you have a hosting plan that allows for both domain hosting and full access to your DNS settings for domain mapping.

Paso 1 - Comienza la conexión en Squarespace

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

  1. En el Home Menu (Menú Principal), haz clic en Settings (Configuración) y luego haz clic en Domains (Dominios). También puedes presionar la tecla ? mientras está abierto cualquier panel y buscar domains (dominios).
  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. Haz clic en Connect From Provider (Conectar desde el Proveedor).
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 Bluehost 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 Bluehost. Mantén abierto este panel para tu referencia.

Paso 2 - Inicia sesión en Bluehost

Go to www.bluehost.com and log into your account. Scroll down to the Domains section, then click Domain Manager.

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

Note: Don’t delete MX Records at this point. MX Records connect your email address, and 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 Bluehost Domain Manager, check the box to the left of the domain you want to link to your Squarespace site. Then click Manage DNS Records.

  • In the Host Record box, paste the unique code from Host column of the Domains panel.
  • Leave TTL as is.
  • Set Type to CNAME.
  • In the Points To box, enter verify.squarespace.com 
  • Click Add Record.

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. This record must point to ext-cust.squarespace.com.

In your Bluehost DNS Zone Editor, create another CNAME record.

  • In the Host Record box, enter www
  • Leave TTL as is.
  • Set Type to CNAME.
  • In the Points To box, enter ext-cust.squarespace.com
  • Click Add Record.
Nota: Si ya tienes un CNAME configurado con un Registro de alojamiento www, edítalo para que Dirigir a sea ext-cust.squarespace.com

You should now have a CNAME with www 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 your Bluehost account matching these values.

In your Bluehost DNS Zone Editor, create an A record.

  • In the Host Record box, enter @
  • Leave TTL as is.
  • Set Type to A.
  • In the Points To box, enter 198.185.159.144
  • Click Add Record.

Repeat this process three more times using the following values:

  • 198.185.159.145
  • 198.49.23.144
  • 198.49.23.145

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 some existing A Records, edit any with Host Record @ so that Points To matches the values above. If you see other A Records in your account that don’t match what’s shown in this guide:
  • Host: @ - Delete only if it doesn't match what’s shown in this guide.
  • Host: blank - Delete. "Blank" specifies your domain without the www in front.
  • 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.

Paso 7: Espera y haz una prueba

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.

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.
