Can't Connect With Shopify! :(


#1

Hi Community,

I got my domain from my local govt. server which doesn’t provide the flexibility to change ‘A Record’ and ‘CNAME’ settings. As a result, I had to configure my domain through CloudFlare. I’ve done everything the shopify ‘Connecting the domain’ manual, but still shopify can’t verify it. What can I do now?

I’ve attached few images for further understanding.

Your A record for the naked domain should be :grey: instead of :orange:

And your CNAME is set up the wrong way round, respectively is not for www.

<And your CNAME is set up the wrong way round, respectively is not for www>

I didn’t understand this part, could you please explain briefly?

Instead of creating a www CNAME pointing to shops.myshopify.com you created a shops.myshopify.com CNAME pointing to your naked domain. You need to reverse this, simply swap the values (respectively enter www as name).

It worked! Thank you so much.
