Issue with displaying/pointing Netlify website on Squarespace subdomain

What I am trying to do is to display the contents of this website: https://flavioazevedo-old-rbookak.netlify.com/ on my squarespace subdomain http://www.rbook.flavioazevedo.com/ . In other words, I want to give this link to people (http://www.rbook.flavioazevedo.com) and they will see the content of this netlify website ( https://flavioazevedo-old-rbookak.netlify.com) without them knowing or being redirected towards that address on Netlify.

On the Squarespace side of things, things seem OK. https://toolbox.googleapps.com/apps/dig/#CNAME/rbook.flavioazevedo.com

I am in doubt if I should do anything on the Netlify side of things. I thought I needed this https://docs.netlify.com/domains-https/custom-domains/configure-external-dns/#configure-a-subdomain but it says nothing about configuring on Netlify.

This is my current configuration at Netlify:

I am also confused on terminology. I think what I am trying to do is “Pointing” but I am not sure.

Any help is extremely appreciated.

Hey @flavioazevedo,

You appear to be on the right track. From here, simply click ‘Add custom domain’ and add http://www.rbook.flavioazevedo.com/.

Once propagated, I can’t see why it wouldn’t work!

Hi there Pieparker,

Thanks!

I think - but not certain - that the issue was that when added a custom domain, I used “http://www.” whereas I think that the correct way might be just be rbook.flavioazevedo.com and then (I just did it) and the DNS error is gone, and I guess I have to wait a bit until it propagates, and then it should be fine (?).

It is the first time that it does not display an error when I insert the subdomain:
