Pointing site 5 domain / deleting old content

Hello everyone!

I am very inexperienced at making a website so please explain this to me like I am baby 🙂


I am tasked with redoing my family’s business website. It was made in like 2005 and hasn’t ever been updated

it is a site 5 domain and made with dreamweaver

essentially. I want to delete everything and start fresh on Shopify. I just want to keep the domain basically. 

what I want to do it point the site towards Shopify or whatever ? How do I delete all the content? Is there a way to just scrap it all and come over to Shopify and have them host the domain? Or point it and delete everything and use Shopify to make new site?

Does this make sense? It barely does to me!

if anyone would like to help me I would be so happy and send so much good energy your way !

thank you !!
