Hola,

 

I just started in Shopify and have been working on some pages already (only front-end). Now I had to move towards a different url due to trade marks. How can I move the pages I recently made in the old domain to my new url?

 

Many thanks!

Easiest way would be to add the new domain to your account and make it the primary, then you won't need to migrate anything really.

You can then set up redirects and change links to the old URLs

@Denn78  Whilst you can do that you don't need to you can just change the domain name of your existing store if you want.

 

Here's the details on domain name set up for Shopify

 

If you don't want to go that route and want to physically move the products you have created from one store to another the you can just export them as a csv file and then upload them to your new store. But I would have thought changing your domain name for your existing store is a better route.

Sorry @StephenK I must have been typing my response whilst you were typing yours. @Denn78 to avoid confusion, we are both giving the same advice, @StephenK can obviously type & hit post quicker than me :)

@JonWright no worries, good work adding the link to the domain docs. Always forget about adding those :)

Many thanks everybody!
@Jon, so if I understand correctly, the myshopify domain can't be changed and will remain the old name, correct? Or can I change this as well? It's not superclean as I'm just starting and I would prefer to have everything in the new set-up.

Thanks again!

@Denn78 yes that's correct your can't change your myshopify domain e.g. name1.myshopify.com to name2.myshopify.com but you can change name1.com to name2.com by buying a new domain and using that as your primary domain.

 

If you have only just started your store and you want to change your myshopify domain address then you might be best to close your account and start again but before you do that it would be worth contacting Shopify directly to see if they can change it for you.
