Have you already purchased the new domain? If yes, then you can update the DNS records to have your root domain (domain name without the www.) A record point to 23.227.38.65. Your subdomain (domain with www.) would have a CNAME value of shops.myshopify.com. It can take up to 48 hours for the changes to take effect before the domain can be added to your Shopify store. We have a detailed step-by-step document here that dives into the information you'll need to update your third-party domain. 

Let me know if you run into any issues.
