Hello, and thank you for your question.

You can read our guide on changing DNS records to use 3rd party services 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 name serves are currently pointed at NS1.WIX.COM and NS2.WIX.COM still. So you would first need to point your name servers to us.

You would want to follow SquareSpace's instructions for mapping a domain to SquareSpace. It looks like you basically want to use the cPanel Advanced DNS Editor then click on Edit beside the entry that reads:

www.example.com. 14400 IN CNAME example.com

You want to change that www.example.com CNAME record to instead point to ext.squarespace.com and then follow the rest of the steps SquareSpace has in their guide.
