Ok. I’m new to this.   Shopify says my domain name is xxxx.myshopify.com.    Do I need a different one for people to find me?    
also my wife said send her the link. 
how do I do that?     I need others to find my store but all I find is info on how to market.   Thanks

Hi, @Wleggett !

By default, your primary domain, known as your .myshopify.com URL, looks like xxxx.myshopify.com as you've mentioned. Your .myshopify.com URL is used to log into your store and identify your account when you contact support.

When you sign up for Shopify, you choose that .myshopify.com URL. You can't change your .myshopify.com URL, but you can buy a custom domain name through Shopify or from any third-party domain registrar, which you can then make your primary domain. While you don't need a different domain name, I would probably recommend it.

Right now, if you wanted to send your wife the link to your store you can just send her the xxxx.myshopify.com URL directly. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Warm regards!
