    I am looking to point my custom WordPress domain to my square space account. I have been looking through a few of the support topics and it looks like most people have needed help from an admin in order to make this work.

    The blog I need help with is dangerzonespoilers.com.

    If you’ve registered your domain through WordPress.com and now want it to point to a blog or website hosted elsewhere then you can do this by updating the nameservers.

    Perfect! Thank you so much for your help. I’ll take a look at the link and see if I can figure it out but I have a feeling I’ll need some more help.

    Hi there, Squarespace actually doesn’t provide name servers, they only provide an A record.

    I notice that you just registered the domain dangerzonespoilers.com a few days ago – is that the one you want pointed to Squarespace? Ideally to do this you would transfer your domain to another registrar, but that can only be done 60 days after registration.

    May I ask why you’re leaving WordPress.com so soon? I’m sorry to see you go – is there anything I can do to help?

    I decided that I no longer want to change over my website. It just looked as though square space was easier to navigate and edit and such. I’m figuring it out as I go along though. Thank you so much for your time :D
