You can connect your website to Shopify with your IONOS domain in just a few clicks. Simply follow the steps below.
Log in to Shopify.
Click Settings at the bottom left of the page.
In the Settings menu, click Domains.
Click Connect existing domain.
In the Domain field, enter your IONOS domain and click Next.
Click Connect Automatically.
The IONOS login window opens.
Log in to IONOS and click Connect.
Your Shopify website is now connected to your IONOS domain.
Troubleshooting: "Connect Automatically" button is not displayed.
If the Connect Automatically button is not visible in step 6, you will need to follow these additional steps:
- Log in to your IONOS account using the following link:
Connect domain to Shopify.
- Select the domain with which you want to connect.
- Press Connect to confirm.
Your website is now connected.
If you have problems connecting your Shopify website to your IONOS domain, please check the DNS settings of your IONOS domain. When doing so, ensure that a CNAME record is created with the hostname _domainconnect and the value _domainconnect.ionos.com. If your domain was registered before January 2022, it may still have the CNAME record _domainconnect.1and1.com. However, this does not affect the functionality of your domain, and both records work in the same way.
