Connect Existing Domain

Set up your existing domain to connect to Shopify

If you've purchased your domain through a third party, then you need to edit the following DNS settings:

  • Your A record should point to Shopify's IP address, which is 

  • Your CNAME record should point to 

  1. Log in to the account you have with your domain provider.

  2. Find your DNS settings. Look for your domain management area, DNS configuration, or similar.

  3. Edit your A record to point to Shopify's IP address Copy

    The domain settings panel might feature drop-downs or editable fields, or you might have to check boxes or edit a table. You need to:

    • enter or choose the @ symbol, or A record
    • enter Shopify's IP address Copy as the destination for the A record.
  4. Save the A Record (click Save, Save Zone File, Add Record, or similar).

  5. Find the CNAME record in your DNS settings.

  6. Change your www CNAME record to point to Copy . Often, you need to provide just the prefix without the dot, but for some domain providers you need the whole subdomain. Use the existing entries as a guide, or follow your provider's instructions. CNAME records must always point to a domain name, never to an IP address.

  7. Save the CNAME Record (usually by clicking Save or Add record or similar).

Now you need to verify your connection in Shopify.
