showing 'shop' subdomain name JUST for shopping area

Hi, my client is using shopify for selling (shop.myclient.ca) , and has a static website (myclient.ca) for all the static  'business card' stuff on another host.  They are considering  also moving website myclient.ca to shopify to simplify admin tasks. I can rewrite myclient.ca pages (e.g' the 'About' page)  to be shopify pages; thats fine.

QUESTION: how do I set up DNS / A / CNAME records so that 'myclient.ca' will send them to the new home page on Shopify, and myclient.ca/about will send them to the new About page on Shopify..etc,   ***and**** have the shop.myclient.ca url still be retained  and functional and shown when they go to any of the existing 'shopping-type' pages  already on Shopify ?

 

thanks.

Hello,

 

I am San from MS Web Designer.

 

To shift the myclient.ca website to Shopify, you will need to set up your own Shopify store and recreate all the necessary pages and products that are currently on myclient.ca. Once the theme customization is complete, you will need to connect your domain to Shopify. 

 

Steps: Navigate to settings, then domain, then select existing domain and enter myclient.ca. Click on verify the connection, and Shopify will provide DNS records that must be entered into your domain provider's DNS settings.

 

Do let me let know in case of any concerns.

 

Regards,

San
