I created a website on Squarespace and I want my domain that is hosted by Homestead to point there.  How do I do this?

Hello,

You would need to get the nameservers from Squarespace and point your domain that way.

Squarespace doesn't use nameservers for connecting domains. Instead, they use two CNAMERecords and four A Records. l need to keep your nameservers set to the default settings. I need full access to the DNS(Domain Name System) records to add CNAMEs and A records.

How do I get those?

OK, so under the Domains tab, click on Advanced DNS Settings. You'll input that information there.
