Connect 123 Reg Domain Name To Shopify

If your domain name was registered through a 3rd-party domain registrar, you need to accomplish two things to successfully link your domain to your Shopify store.

Based on Shopify’s help center, here are the the DNS records you need to add/modify:

  • A record should point to Shopify’s IP address, which is 23.227.38.65
  • www CNAME record should point to shops.myshopify.com

 

How or where can you add these DNS resource records?

DNS records can be added or modified through the domain’s DNS provider, the process varies depending who’s hosting it.

Pros
  • Great Introductory Price (£2.99 .com)
  • Responsive support team
  • Cons
  • Renewal cost is expensive (£15.99 .com)
  • No free Privacy protection
  • Lackluster features
  • Summary

    123 Reg is good option for those who wants to test registering a domain name for 1 year. Their introductory price is so affordable you can buy your first domain without spending much.


    However, I cannot really recommend 123 Reg if you're planning to register multiple domain names for several years because their renewal price is so expensive and they don't offer free domain privacy protection.

    1.) Add Shopify’s Resource Records

    If you’re using 123 Reg to manage the DNS of your domain, follow the steps below to redirect your domain to Shopify.

    If not, check who the DNS provider of your domain and contact their team to add these DNS resource records:

    Host NameTypeData
    @ (domain.com)A23.227.38.65
    www (www.domain.com)CNAMEshops.myshopify.com

    123-Reg: Adding A and CNAME records

    7. Click on the Add new entry button to save the new record.

    Note: If this record is to replace an existing record you can delete the original record by pressing the delete button.

    8. Repeat the same steps, but this time select CNAME on step 4 then enter www in the  Hostname and shops.myshopify.com in the Destination.

    Once you’re done with the DNS configuration, don’t forget to add your custom domain through your Shopify account.

     

    2.) Add Custom Domain in Shopify

    Once you’re done adding the DNS records, you may now add your domain name to your Shopify account.

    1. Go to Shopify and Login to your account.
    2. Select Online Store in the dashboard.
    3. Click Domains.
    4. Click on Connect existing domain.
    5. Enter your custom domain name (example.com).
    6. Click Next.
    7. Click Verify Connection.

     

    3.) DNS Propagation Delay

    If Shopify is unable to verify the DNS records yet, give it several more minutes before attempting to verify the connection again.

    Any DNS changes may take from few minutes up to 48 hours to fully take effect across the entire internet.

    Given that the DNS is properly configured, you will definitely see your custom domain name integrated with your Shopify website soon.
