If you are using your domain name with our hosting or email services then your DNS could already be set up. However you may want to point your domain name to another web hosting provider. This is done by creating or editing a DNS A record.

This article shows you how to add an A record in our hosting control panel.

3. Click on the 'Domains' option, under the System heading.

4. Click on the domain name you wish to add the A record to.

6. Click the 'Add Record' button.

7. Insert your details for the A record. You should leave the Record Name blank and enter (You may need to confirm that is still the correct Shopify IP) and then click "Save"
