Creating A Subdomain on Godaddy w/ Squarespace

I bought my domain on GoDaddy then created a Squarespace site. I want to create a subdomain but in DNS manager it says "Squarespace template is applied" and there's nowhere to create a subdomain. The only option that even says "Subdomain" is under forwarding. So, how do I create a subdomain in GoDaddy even though my site is built on Squarespace?

Are you able to manage the DNS for the domain?

 

Add one of the following records where 'example' is the subdomain you want to create, this would make example.yourdomain.com

 

CNAME record-

Host: example

Points to: ext-cust.squarespace.com

Thanks for answering Nate. I am able to manage the DNS for this domain.

 

So, to be clear, I click ADD in DNS Manager under RECORDS then select CNAME from drop down menu?

Then if I want my subdomain to be "dentists" that's what I enter under HOST?

Then under POINTS TO I enter "ext-cust.squarespace.com"?

 

What about the TTL dropdown? Custom? I'm not even sure what TTL is. 

Yes and the default 1 hour is fine for TTL.

 

You'll also need to make sure the subdomain is added in your SquareSpace account.  They may give you a verification code to be added to the domain DNS in the same way.

That did it. Thanks!

No problem, glad to help.
