How to Connect Google Domain to Shopify Store

Connecting your Google Domain to your Shopify store is a relatively straightforward process. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you through it:

  1. Log in to your Google Domains account:
    Access your Google Domains account by visiting and logging in with your credentials.
  2. Select your domain:
    From your Google Domains dashboard, locate the domain you want to connect to your Shopify store.
  3. Access DNS settings:
    Navigate to the DNS settings or DNS Zone Editor for your selected domain. This is where you’ll make the necessary changes to point your domain to Shopify’s servers.
  4. Edit DNS records:
    Look for the DNS records related to your domain’s A (IPv4 address) and CNAME (Canonical Name) records. You’ll need to modify these records to point to Shopify’s servers.
  • For the A record, update the IP address 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. Navigate to Online Store settings:
    Within your Shopify dashboard, go to “Online Store” and then “Domains.”
  4. Add your domain:
    Click on “Connect existing domain” or “Add existing domain” and enter the 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 Google 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 Google 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 Google 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.
