Hey, @lynai-sales. If you’ve just purchased your domain, then it can take up to 48 hours for your SSL certificate to provision. I mentioned this timeframe in a few of my previous replies, and there is more info about it in the Help Doc for SSL. However, I just went to your storefront, and it looks like everything is fully connected now!
Your store is looking great, by the way! You’re selling some really cute pieces; The top that says “Know your worth then add tax” is so clever. It made me laugh out loud.
Have you considered writing an About Us page? This could really enhance the user experience and add more of a human element to your business. For example, I’d love to know more about what the inspiration is behind your store concept. There are some great tips, examples and templates in this blog post to help you out with it.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Good luck!
Hi, @Eldcan. Welcome to the Community! I’m happy to help you out with this.
How long ago did you purchase, or connect your domain to your Shopify store? As mentioned previously, it can take up to 48 hours for the SSL certificate to provision. Therefore, if it has been longer than that, please reply to the email I am about to send you, and I’ll be able to take a closer look into this for you.
I have the same problem with the SSL. Just to be sure before I screw my dns settings:
- I need to remove ALL the A's except the one with 22.214.171.124 (so I remove the 2nd, 3rd 4th, 5th, 6th)
- I need to remove ALL the AAAA's (so i remove the 7th, 8th and 9th as well)
If i remove those the SSL will be good right?
Thanks in advance!
This is an accepted solution.
Hi, @hazem1995! Thanks for checking in about this.
Do you recall what the additional A and AAAA records are for in your DNS settings? Most commonly, SSL errors are due to multiple A Records or AAAA Records in your DNS Settings. Therefore, if records 2-9 are not intentional, then yes those are the ones to remove.
Who is your domain host? If you have any doubt about the functionality of your DNS setting, I suggest first contacting your domain provider to determine if those records are needed. If advised to remove them, please wait up to 48 hours after doing so for the changes to take effect and your SSL certificate to provision.
If your SSL is still pending 48 hours after making any changes (or if advised not to remove records 2-9), the next step is to attempt to have the SSL certificates provisioned from our end. In order to do so, we’ll need to access your account. At this time, account-specific support via the Shopify Community is unavailable, so please visit our contact page, and log in to your account to create a support request for live chat, callback or email assistance.
To save some time and help the Support Advisor you speak with pick up where we’ve left off, I am going to provide you with a summary of the issue as I understand it. Please share this summary at the beginning of your conversation in order to proceed with the next steps as quickly as possible:
“My domain’s SSL has been pending for longer than 48 hours. I have confirmed with my domain provider that
the DNS settings are correct, therefore I am requesting for you to manually provision the SSL certificate.”
I'm marking this reply as “Solved” for the benefit of anyone else who also needs a Support Advisor to assist with these same next steps. Thanks!
That’s great, @hazem1995! Thanks for the update.
Now that your domain is connected properly, I highly recommend submitting your sitemap to Google. It’s the first step in helping to improve your Search Engine Optimization (SEO). It can sometimes take weeks or even months for your site to become indexed by search engines so that you show up in search results, so the earlier you get it submitted, the better.
Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
