Running multiple domains from one shopify store - Also all with a slight difference, is it possible?

Hi all, I work at CloudfloorDNS - a managed DNS provider that offers domains and DNS solutions for companies of all size.  Recently we announced a new GEO DNS service that does GEO DNS lookups when a domain name is requested, and this then can send the user to a specific URL based on their GEO location

We created this service based on a number of shopify customers asking for help with multiple shopify stores using different language and or currency or pricing structure. This means a customer can now use a single domain, and based on their geographic locale, we can instantly send them to the proper shopify store of your choice

You can find out more about the GEO DNS Director at http://www.cloudfloordns.com/geo-dns-director/ or feel free to contact us for a demo or free trial. Hope this helps all of you!

I think Eric at cloudfloor is missing the point. I believe the members in this discussion want 1 domain not more domains. 

I already use GeoID to direct to my 3 domains.

So GeoID isn't an answer for the questions I've read.

Our service works with a single domain - such as YOURPRODUCT.COM

users enter in the URL  http://YourProduct.com in their browsers - we then GEO Redirect on the backend and if the client is from the US or Candada for instance, they get redirected to the shopify URL for the US and Canada.  This means a single domain for your clients, and automatic redirection to whatever shopify store you want for that defined geographic region/locale

I'd be more than happy to give a live demo to anyone that is interested - we created this specifically out of some of our client needs that use Shopify and multiple shops for regionalized content and currency

I'm trying to do what Morgan Tams posting 

Hey Guys.
My name is Morgan and I'm a Guru here at Shopify.
The only way that this could be done through Shopify is if you had the custom URLs point to specific collections. You can't have different store-fronts per se, but you could direct the user to a collection of specific products related to the domain namer they typed in.

For example, if you have www.store.com with collection 1 and 2,
you should be able to set URL1 to point to www.store.com/collection1 and URL2 to point to www.store.com/collection2 etc.

I realize it's not exactly what you're after, but is a workaround for sure.

I'm looking to hire someone to do this for me -- I have spent ones on the web trying to find someone that can do this for me -- please email -- I need help

We have a Secure forward service that can do this and redirect users to certain stores based on their geography or what they are requesting for a URL

Hi folks, in case this helps someone, I've figured out a solid solution that uses the request object.

First add your second domain to Shopify

Click Disable Redirection under your primary domain in the domain settings to allow both domains to access the site.

The following applies to Shopify's free sectioned themes. For your theme, you may have to replace the category section called in index.liquid with a snippet include containing your theme's category code.

In the theme, edit templates/index.liquid to show different content for each domain. The original domain will show the normal homepage content, but the second domain will show a category page's content instead. At the top of index.liquid add:

{% if request.host == 'your-second-domain.com' and request.path == '/' %}
	{% section 'collection-template' %}
{% else %}

replacing your-second-domain.com with the domain you just added (without https://).

At the bottom of index.liquid add:

{% endif %}

Now we need to set the collection object in the collection section. Open sections/collection-template.liquid and at the top add:

{% if request.host == 'your-second-domain.com' and request.path == '/' %}
	{% assign collection = collections['your-second-domain-collection-handle'] %}
{% endif %}

replacing your-second-domain.com with the domain you just added (without https://) and your-second-domain-collection-handle with the handle of the collection you'd like to display for this domain.

That's it.

From here you can make further domain specific customizations like loading different stylesheets, showing more content other than just the category page, redirecting specific pages to specific domains, displaying custom menus for each domain, etc., but this is the starting point.
