How Do I Connect My Third Party Domain to Shopify?

Last updated on October 1, 2022 @ 9:08 pm

If you have a domain name from a third-party provider and you want to use it with your Shopify store, you can connect it to your Shopify account. You can connect one domain name to your Shopify account. If you want to connect multiple domain names, you need to set up an alias for each domain name.

To connect your third-party domain to Shopify:

1. Log in to your Shopify admin panel. 2. Go to Online Store > Domains. 3. In the Connect a domain section, enter the domain name that you want to connect to your shop.

Then click Connect Domain. 4. Follow the instructions from your DNS provider to configure your DNS settings. You need to set up an A record and a CNAME record for your domain name. For more information, refer to Configuring DNS settings for your Shopify domain (Shopify Help Center). 5 Wait 24-48 hours for the DNS changes to propagate, and then try accessing your shop using your new domain name.

PRO TIP: If you are using a third party domain with your Shopify store, you may experience problems with your connection. We recommend that you contact Shopify support for assistance.
