edit cname records on a shopify hosted domain

1 0 0

I am looking to update the cname info as directed by a shopify email I have received. 


I believe that the domain is hosted by shopify but have no ability when I am in shopify/settings/domains/[domain name] to edit any information.


my domain name is hillsidequilting.com.au

Hey, @dave116.


Thanks for reaching out and posting this question!


If the domain was purchased from Shopify, then you can follow these steps to edit the DNS settings for your Shopify-managed domain. However, if you're not seeing the option to edit the DNS, then it's possible that your domain is purchased from a third-party. While we're unable to access merchant accounts on the Shopify Community, I was able to use WHO.IS, a free public domain lookup tool, to check the domain (hillsidequilting.com.au) and it seems it may have been purchased from Crazy Domains. 




I can also see Shopify's CNAME record and I didn't notice any problems visiting your storefront. if you're still experiencing any issues with connecting a third-party domain to Shopify, then simply get back to me here and I'd be happy to take a look. You can also reach out to the domain provider for assistance with editing the DNS for your domain. 


That being said, do you have a marketing plan prepared for your store? Have you considered using something like Shopify Inbox to interact with customers live on your store?
