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
