I have a question regarding the SSL certificate that Shopify supplies us with.
I have only added my domain to my store yesterday so the max of 48 hours is not over yet. But i have stumbled upon a topic about the SSL still pending from other Shopify clients that says that it could be an issue when a domain has more than one A-record. Mine has two:
Could this be a problem? And how to fix this?
Thanks in advance,
Hyde here from Shopify. Good question!
If you're connecting your third-party domain to Shopify I'd recommend following this guide.
Some domain providers, such as Hover, GoDaddy, Google, and 1&1 IONOS, automatically set-up your domains for you in varying ways. However, if you're unsure or have had to do it yourself, it is worth double-checking with your provider to be sure everything is set up correctly:
Worth noting as well that we have guides for many of the providers listed here:
I hope this all helps, but let me know if you have any other questions.
All the best, Hyde.
Thanks for replying!
I am using Hostnet which is not listed in your list of third-party domain providers. However, i have just removed the second A-record (*.domain.com) without any unwanted effects. The SSL was applied minutes afterwards. Now this could be a coincidence off course, but i don't think so.
Anyway, my problem is solved! Thanks for thinking along!
