I am ignorant here - any help is much appreciated. Ran into something like this before when pointing a domain to BigCartel.com site, but don’t remember the resolution. And I think there was a threat of my DH-hosted images becoming unavailable to BigCartel (?) and I had to move them all to a sub-domain (?) (I clearly need a class or something.)
Now trying to point the domain GRAPHIC44.COM to a Squarespace.com site. I currently host the domain with DH, in fact it is my main “point of entry”, my FTP that gets me to all files/all sites on DH. I just transferred the domain reg to DH to consolidate and hopefully make this transition easier to handle.
- Will I be able to point the name to my Squarespace at all?
- If yes, won’t that prevent accessing my files hosted on DH? My email account under that domain?
- How to resolve?
[i]Step 1 - Create a CNAME Record
Alias - Should be www
Type - Should be CNAME
Points To - Should be www.squarespace6.com
Step 2 - Create an A Record
Create an A Record which will point the version of your domain without the WWW to our IP Address (184.108.40.206).[/i]
I stopped after unsuccessful Step 1. (CNAME is already being used on BC)
Any help - so appreciated.
