Hey @miafrance!

Olivia here from the Shopify Team. I'd be happy to help you out with this.

I looked into the domain name you would like to use, and I can see it has been registered since April 2020 via the domain provider http://www.internetbs.net. I assume you currently own this domain?

If so, you can easily point it to your Shopify store to start using it. Follow this step-by-step guide on connecting a third-party domain.

First, add your custom domain to your Shopify store

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Domains.
  2. Click Connect existing domain.
  3. Enter the domain that you want to connect, such as johns-apparel.info.
  4. Click Next.

Then, set up your existing domain to point to Shopify.

  1. Log in to the account that you have with your third-party domain provider.

  2. Find your DNS settings, domain management area, DNS configuration, or similar.

  3. Edit your A record to point to Shopify's IP address 23.227.38.65.

  4. Save your changes.
  5. Change your www CNAME record to point to shops.myshopify.com.

  6. Don't forget to save!

Now you need to verify your connection in Shopify.

  1. Head back to Admin > Online Store > Domains > Manage Domain
  2. Click Verify Connection


Voila! That should do the trick, but let me know if you have further questions or comments.

Warm regards,

Olivia | Social Care @ Shopify
