Setting up your domain with Shopify

  1. Log in to the account that you have with your third-party domain provider.
  2. Find your DNS settings, domain management area, DNS configuration, or similar.
  3. Edit your A record to point to Shopify’s IP address

    The domain settings panel might feature drop-downs or editable fields, or you might have to check boxes or edit a table. You need to complete the following steps:

    • In the Type or Record Type field, enter or choose the @ symbol, or A record.
    • In the Points to field, enter Shopify’s IP address as the destination for the A record.
  4. Save the A Record by clicking SaveSave Zone FileAdd Record, or similar.
  5. Change your www CNAME record to point to shops.myshopify.com.
    • Enter or choose the www prefix. Often, you need to provide just the www prefix without the dot, but some domain providers need the whole subdomain www.. Use the existing entries as a guide, or follow your provider’s instructions.
    • Enter shops.myshopify.com as the destination for the CNAME record. CNAME records must always point to a domain name, never to an IP address.
  6. Save the CNAME Record by clicking SaveSave Zone FileAdd record, or similar.

Now you need to verify your connection in Shopify.
