Setting up a custom domain can be a little tricky. Well, it used to be a little tricky, but we’ve built a fancy little tool to help make sure your custom domain can be set up without much fuss. Our domain validator, located in your shop’s admin (Store > Settings), will let you know if your domain is set up correctly - it just takes one click, a couple seconds, and a little bit of behind-the-scenes magic.
If for some reason your domain isn’t set up correctly, don’t sweat it, we’ve got an error message for that. The messages are designed to explain how you’ve got your custom domain set up currently, why it’s not working, and how to fix it. Finally, a tour guide through the complicated mess that is DNS.
Check your existing domain
Already have a custom domain setup? Well, it’d probably be a good idea to test it anyway. We’ll soon be moving our servers into a new home, and that means an IP address change. This change won’t affect your store if your domain is setup properly, so hop into your admin settings, scroll down to Domains, and click Test Domain to make sure you’re good to go.
