How To Use Custom Domain For Self-Hosted Website?

I am hosting my shopify store on my own web server. I have developed a custom website and use the shopify Storefront API to fetch all of my store's products and display them on my website.

 

I want to associate my custom domain name with my shopify store, however I do not want to modify the DNS records for this domain as I want them pointing to my own hosted server, not my shopify hosted store (which I don't use).

 

The reason this is an issue because all of the email templates and some checkout links redirect to "storename.myshopify.com", and I want them to link to "mydomain.com". Is anyone able to advise a way I can do this or if it's possible?

 

I see two current options right now.

  1. Find some way of automatically redirecting all traffic from "storename.myshopify.com" to "mydomain.com".
  2. Setup "mydomain.com" in shopify as a primary domain by changing the DNS records. And then repoint my domain to my custom server afterwards.

I'd love a better solution to either of the above if anyone has any ideas?
