I know the pattern when I set up an App Proxy. For example, for my Shopify store https://jigglezoggle.myshopify.com I can have /apps/flooblefart as an endpoint, and Shopify will send my GET or POST to my App when I do an AJAX call to /app/flooblefart with (or without) data. I get back JSON or Liquid, my choice.
So let us say my DNS is mapping that *.myshopify.com name to https://www.excellentnews.com. If I make my JS calls to https://www.excellentnews.com/apps/flooblefart is that equivalent and acceptable practice?
I am seeing exactly that in a client shop, and it confuses me, and the FQDN is not something I ever considered using. Do most App Proxy calls use FQDN? If yes, why?

This is an accepted solution.
Actually, correction. I forgot to add my custom (real) domain name to the development store. Once I did that everything worked fine. The app proxy passed along things okay!
