Hello, and thank you for your question.

You can read our guide on <a href="" 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 as your domain's <a href="" 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="" target="_blank">point your name servers to us</a>.

You would want to follow SquareSpace's instructions for <a href="" target="_blank">mapping a domain to SquareSpace</a>. It looks like you basically want to use the <a href="" target="_blank">cPanel Advanced DNS Editor</a> then click on <strong>Edit</strong> beside the entry that reads:

<span style="color: red;"> 14400 IN CNAME</span>

You want to change that <span style="color: red;"></span> <strong>CNAME</strong> record to instead point to <span style="color: red;"></span> and then follow the rest of the steps SquareSpace has in their guide.
