I want to get rid of my hosting plan on siteground which will expire anyway soon but how can i do it the right way without risking losing my site on shopify if i don't renew the hosting plan on siteground ?
Solved! Go to the solution
In the domain section click on "Transfer Domain" to put back the domain in Shopify.
Shopify is self-hosted so I doubt it has any files remaining on site ground.. Except maybe some photos
please step by step help if you have time
if I fill in www.sjemmieland.com on the transfer domain page i get the following message
There is 1 error:
Domain not found. Please ensure the domain is registered with a provider.
this domain is renewed until april 2021
Use the domain as: sjemmieland.com with the "www" at the start.
i did it without the www and that worked and followed the steps:
now comes the scary part:
Prepare your domain for transfer
Step 1 of 3
BEFORE YOU TRANSFER
You need to complete these steps with your current provider:
Log in to your current provider and check their transfer policy.
Unlock your domain. I DID
Confirm that your admin email is up to date. I DID
Get an authorization code from your provider. I GOT IT
To transfer your domain, you need to buy another year of registration. The time remaining on your current registration will carry across to Shopify when you transfer. I DID
Your domain will renew on April 10, 2021 for $ 14,00 USD
The $14 is paid so things went succesful
And now this happened where I was afraid of
This site cannot be reached The IP address of the server of www.sjemmieland.com cannot be found.
Run Windows Network Check.
Now what do I have to do ?
