I've recently connected a third-party domain to my new Shopify site. I've updated the domain DNS as well. But still, it's showing the old WordPress site instead of the new Shopify site. Can anyone please help why this is happening?
Here's my site URL naturcress.com
That is an odd error, as it sounds like you have everything set up correctly. I checked out your settings on a DNS checker site, and it looks like your domains are all pointing the right way; towards Shopify.
It may be that your domain still has a leftover SSL attached from your previous domain host, then that SSL is preventing Shopify from issuing our own SSL and letting the site come through to our platform. Can I ask where your website is currently being hosted? It may be worthwhile logging into your domain host to see if there are any domain controls still there. IF you could log in there, could you show me a screenshot of what you see? Just so I can get some further context. We can take things from there!
I’m literally having the same issue. The old Wordpress website is showing up but Shopify says everything is connected. It’s a google domain. Can anything be done to help? The URL is
Thanks for posting, @shianne87! Can I ask if you've already checked your previous host (WordPress) to make sure no links to your domain exist there? If you can still see any instances of your domain being hosted on WordPress, it may be directing customers to your old site.
If you've already done this and can't see anything out of the ordinary, it may be best to reach out to our support team so they can have a proper look at your domain settings.

Can you show me a screenshot of what you are seeing when you try to view your website? Just so I have some extra context on the error you are seeing!
Same with me.
Its been over 2 days and its showing the non WWW version but the WWW version is the old website.
Hey, @Ryan_Griff !
Thanks so much for the screenshot here, that is super helpful. It looks like you have more than one A Record for your domain, you should only have one here. I'll outline the changes you should make below!
You should end up with something that looks like this:
For the MX Records, I would double-check the format of that with your domain host, as they can direct you with email forwarding.
Let me know what you think!
