Connect Name.com Domain 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.

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

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