Can I Change The Domain Of My Shopify Store?

Yes, you can change the domain of your Shopify store by following a few simple steps.

First, you should log into your Shopify account. Then, select Online Store from the sidebar and choose Domains. You will be able to see the current domain that is associated with your store.

Once you have identified the current domain associated with your store, you should click on the Manage link next to the domain. This will take you to a page where you can edit the domain’s settings. At the bottom of the page, you can click the Change Domain button to choose a new domain.

You will then be presented with the option to either register a new domain or connect an existing domain. If you choose to register a new domain, you will be directed to a page where you can search for an available domain.

After you have selected a new domain name that is available, you can enter the domain name in the text box that is provided on the page and click Add to Cart to proceed with the transaction. You will then need to proceed with the checkout process, which will involve entering your payment information and then confirming the order.

Once the transaction is completed, you will be shown a confirmation page with the new domain name that is now associated with your Shopify store. You can also access the same page from the Domains tab in your Shopify admin panel. This will allow you to see the new domain associated with your Shopify store and make sure everything is working correctly.

By following the steps mentioned above, you can easily change the domain of your Shopify store in just a few minutes.

The Takeaway

When it comes to running an online business, the domain of your store can be an important factor. It can help customers to remember your name, attract traffic, and make your business stand out from the crowd. For those running their store through Shopify, changing the domain is a surprisingly simple process.

The first step is to choose the new domain name. This can be done through Shopify, by searching through their Slicknames database. This will give the user access to hundreds of top-level domains that could be used. Once the user finds a domain they like, they can add, purchase, and connect it to their store with the click of a button.

Additionally, transferring existing domains to Shopify is also possible. This allows users to save money and points to an already established website. With Shopify, no technical knowledge is needed to make the switch.

Once everything is set up, Shopify provides a step-by-step guide on how to point their current domain to the new one. This takes minutes and can open up the store to more customers.

Since it's so easy to change the domain of a Shopify store, business owners can quickly move their store to a more recognizable URL and take advantage of a growing market.
