You can read our guide on <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/domain-names/dns-nameserver-changes/change-dns-records-to-use-3rd-party-services" target="_blank">changing DNS records to use 3rd party services</a> for how to get your website pointed to another location.
It looks like your site had possibly been hosted at Wix.com as your domain's <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/domain-names/dns-nameserver-changes/what-is-a-name-server" target="_blank">name serves</a> are currently pointed at <span style="color: red;">NS1.WIX.COM</span> and <span style="color: red;">NS2.WIX.COM</span> still. So you would first need to <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/domain-names/dns-nameserver-changes/updating-your-domains-nameservers" target="_blank">point your name servers to us</a>.
You would want to follow SquareSpace's instructions for <a href="http://help.squarespace.com/guides/mapping-a-domain-general-instructions" target="_blank">mapping a domain to SquareSpace</a>. It looks like you basically want to use the <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/edu/cpanel/cpanel-manage-domains/advanced-dns-editor-cpanel" target="_blank">cPanel Advanced DNS Editor</a> then click on <strong>Edit</strong> beside the entry that reads:
<span style="color: red;">www.example.com. 14400 IN CNAME example.com</span>
You want to change that <span style="color: red;">www.example.com</span> <strong>CNAME</strong> record to instead point to <span style="color: red;">ext.squarespace.com</span> and then follow the rest of the steps SquareSpace has in their guide.
