How to point your website to Shopify

The information in this article is related to konsoleH.
If you are using our new Control Panel, refer to this article.

Make the switch and discover a simpler, more secure way to manage your hosting.

Domains registered with us can have their website hosted with Shopify while keeping domain and email services with us. The DNS is easily updated via konsoleH.

We will remain responsible for the domain name administration and will continue to bill you for domain name charges e.g. yearly domain renewal fees as well as your hosting package. 

Although not used for web content, your hosting package is used for your email services.

Once you have added your domain to Shopify, proceed with Connecting your domain to Shopify by updating your domain DNS settings from your konsoleH control panel:

Set up DNS pointing to Shopify

  1. Browse to konsoleH and log in at Admin level
  2. From the left menu choose Manage Services, then Manage DNS

    Note: If there is no Manage DNS then you have logged in at Domain level and not at Admin level, as required
  3. Change the relevant A- and Cname-records as follows:

          Hostname @

      • Under A records, find the @ row
      • Change the Destination IP to the IP address provided by Shopify by clicking in the Destination field and editing
      • Click Update

         Hostname www

      • Under the A records, find the www row
      • From the Record Type drop-down list, select CNAME
      • Add the following URL in the Destination field:  Note the full stop at the end
      • Click Update

Note: It might take up to 48 hours for your custom domain to point to your Shopify store.
