Important things to note…
- DNS Zone for the domain should be at (mt) Media Temple; that is we are set as the nameserver.
- It’s not possible to connect a custom domain to a specific page on your site. All connected domains will point to the site itself and resolve to the primary domain. AKA, its all or nothing!
- The domain cannot be parked by Squarespace unless they are the registrar.
- You can’t connect the domain to Squarespace if the domain name has the word “squarespace” or “sqsp” in it.
- Domains with special characters (such as ü, é, ñ) may not display properly on all browsers. If a browser can’t display the character, it will reformat the domain with extra characters and dashes. For example, the domain “übercool.de,” redirects to “xn--bercool-m2a.de” in unsupported browsers.
