Hey Shopify Community,
My domain at third-party is getting disconnected every hour or so. Haven't faced this issue before. Everything looks good with my records. When I retry connection, it comes back with no issues.
Any ideas on why it is getting disconnected?
Did you purchase the domain through Shopify, or through a third-party?
If a third-party:
The domain was purchased through a third-party. The DNS settings were updated last Wednesday, again on Friday and Saturday and we spoke with them again yesterday. They are saying everything is correct on their end. The URL is Partyamerica.com. It will occasionally connect, but not for long.
Great, thanks! Taking a look at public records, the DNS changes have not been applied successfully:
The "A" record for your root domain "partyamerica.com" will need to point to 220.127.116.11 - Your subdomain "www.partyamerica.com" will need to have a CNAME record of shops.myshopify.com and not an "A" record. Your domain provider will need to provide further assistance on getting these records to appear publicly.
I'm also facing the same problem. I have a third-party domainname via 123 reg, which is connected to my Shopify store. The connection itself works perfectly. However, it keeps getting disconnected. Sometimes within minutes, other times after a few hours, or after a few days. When this happens, I login and verify the connection again which goes through successfully and works as normal for a few hours/days, before disconnecting. It’s a repeat circle and it’s really getting frustrating.
My website is www.falouse.com
At the moment the connection works, but I expect it to go down again.
I have attached a screenshot of my advance DNS setup, if you can guide me through which lines to delete it would be much appreciated.
On a separate note my SSL security has been pending for over 48 hours now, I would like to get this resolved as well, can someone from Shopify tech support please have a look into this for me.
Another issue I have also been experiencing is the visit tally, my close friends and family have been testing the site by visiting it and the live count as well as the normal count is not registering, it shows desktop visits by people in other countries but when my family and friends in the same country as me (UK) test it in my presence I do not see the tally counter capture their visits.
if it’s easier please call me to discuss or post a number on here for me to call. Thanks.
For your DNS issue, you have same problem as others, you have multiple A records which is why it isn't working consistently. You should only have one A record, 18.104.22.168. Once that fix has propagated that should also solve your SSL issue.
Hi - re tracking - could be for any number of reasons and probably not helped by the A record issues you have. Mobile phones have loads of browser privacy features built in to prevent various forms of tracking, so could just be that. I think it's just one of those things not to worry about.
Re Shopify support, don't think there is a number but I think they have a support channel on Twitter as well.
We are having the same issues. We do not have multiple A records and we have had to manually add the CNAME. This is the 2nd time in a week our site has gone down. We use a third party domain provider. Shopify support helped trouble shoot but this can't keep happening.
Shopify support says its a 3rd party problem, but folks in this thread are having issues with hosts different from us. Seems like a Shopify problem. A permanent solution is appreciated.
