Hosting Non-Shopify files but moving domain name to Shopify

I am just in the middle of transferring my domain from Moniker to GoDaddy, along with cancelling my current Magento hosting with Aspiration.

I am aware that I need to change the CNAME in Godaddy so the domain points to my Shopify store but my question is what can I do with the non-shopify files I have (some of these are used in my ebay template, along with links using mydomain.com/filelink etc.

Can I move my non-shopify files to Hostagator for (I have a hostgator account) for example, and still ensure the domain works properly with Shopify?

Hey there!

When you move those files over to HostGator I'd recopmmend setting up some 301 redirects to make sure the domain-specific links you have to the files don't get broken. That should prevent any loss of access or traffic. :)

Thank you for your reply Alex :)

So this would be the best way to host my other files? Shopify won't host non-shopify files?

Also, I'm not sure what to do with my email forwarding. I see Godaddy allows it but also hostgator. I'm thinking that I use the Hostgator forwarding.
