Can You Transfer Shopify Domain?

Last updated on October 1, 2022 @ 9:48 pm

You can absolutely transfer your Shopify domain to another registrar! In fact, we encourage it. Why?

Because it gives you full control of your domain and website. If you’re not happy with your current registrar, you can switch to another one that offers better pricing, features, or customer support. And if you ever want to move your Shopify store to another platform, you can do so without losing your domain name.

To transfer your Shopify domain to another registrar, simply follow these steps:

PRO TIP: If you are thinking about transferring your Shopify domain to another registrar, be warned that doing so may result in your Shopify store being suspended. This is because when you transfer a domain away from Shopify, Shopify’s DNS servers are no longer able to resolve the domain and so your store becomes inaccessible. If you must transfer your domain away from Shopify, be sure to first contact Shopify support and let them know so they can help you make the necessary changes to avoid having your store suspended.

1. Log in to your Shopify admin and go to Online Store > Domains. 2. Click the domain you want to transfer and then click the Transfer button. 3. Enter the EPP code for your domain.

This can be found in the email that was sent to you when you first registered your domain with Shopify, or from your current registrar. 4. Click Transfer Domain. 5. Enter your billing information and then click Pay and transfer domain. 6. Once the transfer is complete, you’ll receive an email from Shopify with instructions on how to set up DNS for your new registrar.

That’s it! Once the transfer is complete, you’ll be able to manage your domain and website through your new registrar.
