Looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day present for your Shopify store? Let’s face it, chocolates and flowers have been overplayed. This year, surprise the store you love with a custom domain name using Domains by Shopify, our brand new domain registration service that’s built to make your life easier.
Starting today, we will be allowing you to search and secure the perfect domain name all within your store’s admin. Simply pick a domain and it will automatically point to your Shopify store. With easy domain forwarding you don’t have to worry about the nitty gritty of modifying DNS settings and CNAME records… we do it for you.
Most domains will cost $25 (“.com”, “.net”, “.org”, “.biz” and more). Some domains cost $35 (“.co”, “.me”, “.ws”, “.ch”), and a couple cost $45 (“.tv” and “.mx”). All registration costs associated with the domain name are taken care of.
All domain names come fully equipped with the following awesomeness:
- 1 year of use, automatically renewed until you cancel your Shopify store or domain;
- Automatic setup of http://yourstore.com, http://www.yourstore.com, and http://shop.yourstore.com;
- Automatic creation of email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org, set to forward to your email address;
- Optional integration with Google Apps for more sophisticated email and collaboration requirements;
- Optional access to full DNS configuration, in case you need to make manual changes.
Domains by Shopify takes a complicated process and makes it quick and easy. Happy Valentine’s Day.
