The Takeaway

Yes, you can buy domain names on Shopify. An online store needs a domain name to begin selling products, and Shopify makes it easy for business owners to buy and set up a domain name for their store. Shopify offers a variety of domains including generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD) domains such as .com and .net, and Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs) such as .ca, .uk, and .us. Additionally, Shopify offers domain privacy to protect the personal information of the store's owners. Shopify also makes it easy to set up a DNS, or Domain Name System, to forward a purchased domain name to a Shopify store. Alongside helping users buy and manage domains, Shopify also offers web hosting and domain transfer services. With these, users can transfer a domain from a previous hosting service and have Shopify host it. Shopify's web hosting services also make it easy to set up and manage the store's emails so that customers can easily contact the store owners. In short, Shopify helps business owners buy domains, set up DNS, transfer domains from a previous hosting service, and manage email accounts; all in the same place.
