Hi @Fungyrls,

If you configure your domain correctly prior to transferring the domain over from GoDaddy to Shopify, then no, you should not see any downtime during this process. If you are seeking to transfer hosting over to Shopify, I'd recommend reading this page on our Help Center which provides more information on the steps and considerations you should make. If you're looking to keep the domain hosted on GoDaddy but just point it towards Shopify so it works on your store, we have more information about connecting third-party domains here.

Kind regards,

Hi @Dileepa,

Thank you for getting in touch. You can transfer your domain away from Shopify as per the instructions in this guide. Please note that you cannot transfer a domain within 60 days of purchasing it, and you will need help from Shopify Support if your domain has a .co.uk, .eu or .be extension.

I hope this explains things but please let me know if you have more questions.

Kind regards,
