So I am hosting my domain (elitebanker.co.uk) via Shopify's hosting service. I want to set up email hosting and have purchased the service offered by godaddy. They have now asked me to "Find where to add a TXT record, and enter [the TXT value]". I was wondering where this was in Shopify? I haven't been able to find anything on the discussion forums.
Alex here, from the Shopify team.
When you purchase a custom domain through Shopify your domain is hosted by a company called OpenSRS. You'll be able to log into your OpenSRS account and access the TXT Record in your DNS Settings.
I'll send you a private message to ensure you have access to your OpenSRS account.
Once you're logged in you can use this guide to Add a TXT Record for Shopify Domains.
For the sake of simplicity Shopify merchant don't automatically get the login details to their OpenSRS account since often there are no changes to make in that account, but a merchant can reach out to Shopify support anytime and we'll send them the login details right away.
