I'm Niki. Work for acmetoptop.com.

If I want to change my domains on Shopify directly, What inflicts will happen on my store?

Close my store or others?

Please give me some suggestions if I want to change it.

Hi @ZexicZeng,


Great question!


If you change the domain there are no major changes that will occur other than the domain being changed/ added. There might be some SEO changes to consider but outside of the domain being different, there aren't any major inflictions. 


One thing to note is that, if you swap a domain from one Shopify store to another, the domain from the store you move it from will go back to the default myshopify.com domain which you set up when you opened your store. If you're moving/adding a third-party domain, there are some things to consider though, you can see them here. A store wouldn't be closed by a domain moving, only if you actively close it yourself


If you want to add or change a domain, you can do so by purchasing a domain through Shopify directly or moving a domain you bought from a third-party host

Hi @ZexicZeng,


When you switch to a new domain name, your existing clients will be unable to access your website if they search for the previous title. As a result, you may lose a considerable number of customers.

We recommend that you create a new domain that links to the previous one. For more information on domain topic, you can contact Shopify for assistance.


If you feel like my answer is helpful, please mark it as a SOLUTION. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Best regards.
