Preparing to migrate domain from Squarespace to Netlify

Current Squarespace site: 146parks.blog
Current Netlify (draft) site: 146parks.netlify.app

I intend to replace the Squarespace site with the Netlify-hosted version in a couple of days (i.e. once I finish migrating a last few bits of content).

The domain is registered at hover.com. I’m pretty good with the control panels on all three sites, but I’m wondering if there are any gotchas (NS1 errors, SSL config, etc.) that are likely to bite me in the migration.

The site is a just-for-fun low-traffic (for now, at least) site, but I’d rather not have substantial downtime.

@scouten You might want to check out this, too.

Those instructions were spot-on and I am live now at 146parks.blog. Thank you!
