I recently bought a domain with Hostgator and now I want to put it as my Shopify domain. How can I do that?
Do I need to also have hosting service by hostgator?

 

Thanks!

Hey Eric!

Hostgator should be able to help you out with this, but you'll need to modify your DNS records on HostGator as per this help doc:

http://docs.shopify.com/manual/settings/domains/outside-provider

 

You shouldn't need any web hosting from Hostgator, as all of your content is hosted on Shopify. However, if you want email, Hostgator would be able to help you out with that as Shopify does not provide email as part of its services.

Hi,

 

So if I buy a domain on Hostgator he'll provide me with emial IDs whereas if I purchase the same via Shopify I wouldn't get the email provision from Shopify. Is my understanding correct?
