How to point your website to Shopify

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. Select konsoleH Beta
  4. Change the relevant A- and Cname-records as follows:
    • Hostname @:
      • Select A records and find the @ row
      • Change the Value destination IP to 23.227.38.32 by clicking in that field and editing
      • Click Save

    • Hostname www :
      • Delete the record type www by clicking the trashcan on the right of that row

      • Click the Add new record field

      • Type: CNAME
      • Host: www
      • Is an alias of: provide the URL shops.myshopify.com.  Note the full stop at the end
      • Click Add

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