Hi @carolynelepage.

The steps for connecting a third party domain to Shopify are as follows: 

  1. On your domain provider’s website, log in to your account.

  2. Find the DNS settings or domain management area.

  3. Change the following records:

    A. Point the A record to the Shopify IP address
    B. If necessary, change the Host name to the @ symbol.
    C. Delete any other A records on the domain if there are any present.
    D. Point the CNAME record with the name www to

Once you have completed this, it can take up to 48 hours for the new domain to correctly "point" to your store. Are you still experiencing an issue after this 48 hour period?
