Modifying the DNS Servers of a Squarespace Domain to Point Towards PlanetHoster

Introduction

In some circumstances, it may be worthwhile to keep a domain registered with Squarespace, while having Squarespace’s DNS servers changed to point to PlanetHoster’s. This can happen, for example, when you want to host your site and mailboxes at PlanetHoster while keeping your domain name hosted with Squarespace.

In this article, we’ll explain how to do this.

Note: It may take up to 24 hours for the change to be fully implemented.

Note: The PlanetHoster Glossary contains explanations on multiple topics and can be consulted to clarify certain terms.
