Connect Network Solutions 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.

 

1.) Add Shopify’s Resource Records

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

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.
