    I want to delete my domain with wordpress. I have been trying to get my domain transferred to my new squarespace website. Ive pressed every button, tried every link, I’ve done everything i know how to do and haven’t accomplished anything.
    I just want kellyhofer.com to not be with wordpress any more. I want it to point to what is currently kellyhoferphotography.squarespace.com
    Thank you.

    The blog I need help with is kellyhofer.com.

    Note that you must be logged in as Admin under the same username account that registered the blog and purchased the domain mapping upgrade to proceed as follows.

    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.

    That means we have to search the forums here for instructions. Have you done that?

    I did some searching for you. Since Squarespace doesn’t provide name servers like most other web hosts, their DNS setup is a bit complicated, so we usually need Staff to assist folks with the setup process.

    Is Squarespace requiring an A Record too, or just a CNAME?

    If they’re requiring an A Record, what are the A Record and CNAME values that they need?

    I’ll tag this thread for Staff assistance. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

    I did all i could and on squarespace’s end they gave me this message:

    This domain is not correctly pointing to Squarespace.
    You must change these records to point to Squarespace within your domain registrar’s interface. Click here for more information.

    Please note, if you have recently used our guide to map your custom domain, it can take up to 48 hours for changes to DNS settings to resolve.

    I’ve just adjusted the domain so it points to your Squarespace site. These changes usually take 1 hour.

    Please let us know if you need any further assistance!
