These are the steps on how to manually configure your domain through Squarespace.
***Important***- If you are wanting to migrate a blog you can not switch your DNS records until our Showit blog team has finished migrating your blog. If you do switch your DNS records before your blog is migrated, our blog team will be unable to migrate your blog. Once the migration is complete, our team will message you and give you the necessary DNS records.
If you would like to request a blog migration you can do so here:
***If you've already applied the DNS settings and just need to have the SSL (secured url) applied, you can message our support team and ask for that to be setup.
To get started you'll want to login to your Squarespace account where you have your domain hosted. Navigate to your domain section select the 3 little dots to manage the domain.
Next, select the domain.
Next, select Advanced settings tab.
Here you'll find your domain DNS settings. You may see other records in your DNS so make sure you are only removing the website defaults records.
After you have deleted the Website Defaults records you'll want to add in the following showit DNS settings. This will connect your showit site to your domain.
Set the DNS records to the following values:
A Record: @ to: 22.214.171.124 (Have a showit blog? Use the IP provided by our team)
A Record: * to: 126.96.36.199
CNAME Record: www to: yourdomain.com (<--whatever your unique domain is - like ours would be showit.co)
Be sure to SAVE the changes you have made
***If you encounter a notification about setting your Nameservers then you'll need to navigate to the Nameserver tab and default the nameservers to use Squarespace nameservers. This will allow the DNS settings you just configured to be applied and be connected.
The changes that were made take time to propagate throughout the internet worldwide. So if you aren't seeing it live just yet, give it another few hours, and refresh the page.
In rare cases, it can take up to 48 hours for full propagation. If it's not working at that point for you, then let us know.
If you need your URL secured (SSL applied) please contact our support team in the Showit app (bottom right corner) and ask for an SSL certificate to be applied.
