How to Setup your Domain DNS to work with Shopify Ecommerce Store

How to Setup your Domain DNS to work with Shopify Ecommerce Store


Shopify 14-day Trial:

UPDATE: It seems that Namecheap has changed their control panel recently, and I will be posting a new video soon. For the time being, I have the steps listed here on how to manage the host records:
1) Log into Namecheap
2) Select the “Manage” button next to the domain you wish to work with.
3) From the domain management screen, select the “Advanced DNS” tab at the top
4) From the Advnaced DNS screen, select the “Manage” button to the right of “Host Records”
5) You will be able to add or edit host records from the Manage Host Records screen. Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions!

In this video I will show you how to setup a Shopify Account, using a 14 day trial.

Then I will show you how to setup your registered domain name to work with your shopify store

I will show you how to update your A Record DNS entries. I used namecheap to register my domain:
I will show you how to update the DNS entries there.

Once DNS has been configured, I will show you how to select the primary domain you will use for your shopify store.

Be sure to check out my other videos on how to register a domain name, and how to setup a free email account so you can send and receive email with your domain name.


  1. Thank you for posting this but my google domain and shopify do not mix. Most difficult site to
    transfer a Google domain to. Why I do not know. I was with Volusion and another ecommerce site previously and set all that up in a jiffy. Moving on.
