  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account:
    Access your GoDaddy account dashboard by entering your credentials.
  2. Navigate to the Domain Manager:
    Once logged in, locate and click on the “DNS” or “Domains” section. Here, you’ll see a list of domains associated with your account.
  3. Select the GoDaddy domain you want to connect:
    Choose the domain you wish to link with your Shopify store.
  4. Access DNS settings:
    Within the Domain Manager, look for the “DNS Management” or “Manage DNS” option. This is where you’ll make the necessary changes to point your domain to Shopify’s servers.
  5. Update DNS records:
    Locate the A (Host) and/or CNAME records in your DNS settings. You’ll need to modify these records to point to Shopify’s servers.
  • For the A (Host) record, change the value to Shopify’s IP address:
  • For the CNAME record, add a new record with the host www and point it to
  1. Save your changes:
    After updating the DNS records, save your changes. It may take some time for the changes to propagate across the internet.
  2. Log in to your Shopify account:
    Access your Shopify dashboard by logging in to your account.
  3. Go to Online Store settings:
    Within your Shopify dashboard, navigate to “Online Store” and then “Domains.”
  4. Add your domain:
    Click on “Connect existing domain” or “Add existing domain” and enter the GoDaddy domain name you want to connect. Follow the prompts to complete the setup.
  5. Verify domain connection:
    Shopify will automatically verify the domain connection. This process may take a few minutes. Once verified, your GoDaddy domain will be connected to your Shopify store.
  6. Set your primary domain:
    If you have multiple domains connected to your Shopify store, set your GoDaddy domain as the primary domain if desired. This ensures that visitors will see this domain in their browser’s address bar.

That’s it! Your GoDaddy domain is now successfully connected to your Shopify store. You can now start directing visitors to your online store using your custom domain. Remember to periodically check your DNS settings and Shopify domain settings to ensure everything remains connected and updated.
