On September 7, 2023 Squarespace acquired all domain registrations and their associated customer accounts from Google Domains.
If you bought a domain through Google Domains, your domain will move over from Google Domains to Squarespace for management
and Squarespace does not have dynamic DNS support. If you are looking for a new DDNS provider, Dynu is your best choice.
We are one of the oldest DDNS providers for over 2 decades and an ICANN accredited domain registrar. We will continue to offer DDNS
free of cost
with our domain registrations.
You can follow a few simple steps to transfer your DNS and domain with us with minimal downtime.
Update DNS zone
Your DNS records should be added automatically when you register the DDNS service in Step 1. If some of them are not, please compare the
DNS records you have with Google and the ones in the 'DNS Records' section of the Dynu control panel and add the missing ones.
Change name servers
Once the DNS zone has been set up. You can go to Google Domains and change your domain's name servers to the below:
Place a domain transfer order
You may place a domain transfer
order and submit the auth code to complete the domain transfer.
Please turn off DNSSEC at Google before you transfer the domain name to avoid DNS resolution issue caused by propagation. We do support DNSSEC with
our registered domains but suggest that you set it up at a later time when the domain completes transfer to avoid downtime.
Run IP update utility
You can set up DDNS updates using one of our free software or set it up in your router/firewall. You may find the configuration guide
If you want to keep the domain registration with Squarespace and use our DDNS service only, you can skip Step 4 and complete the other steps.
The DDNS is free of cost if you have less than 4 DNS records, otherwise, you can
become a member
for only $9.99/year to have unlimited DNS records and have
premium features such as priority support, IP update history log, DNS zone backups. The membership applies to the whole account, no matter
how many domains you have.
