Adding a domain name

 

Adding a domain is an important part of building a website.  With your own domain, customers can easily navigate to your website from anywhere on the net.

Most importantly, it allows you to show up higher in search engines and search engines give priority to unique domain names. 

 

The process of connecting your store to your domain name is very simple.

Just go to Settings -> Domain and copy the IP address from there.

 

 

Now you need to log into your account of the company that supplied you with your domain name (GoDaddy, HostGator, InMotion, for example).

There you need to locate the 'Record A' value. Insert the I.P address from the Shoplo dashboard in this text box. 

NOTE: If you don’t know how to change this record, contact the domain providers support.

 

Back in the Shoplo panel, you now need to add your domain address to the panel.

In settings -> domains, click .

Enter the domain name as 'yourstorename.com'. www.youstorename.com will automatically be created.

Click the 'main' box and hit 'save changes'. 

 

PLEASE NOTE: It can take up to 48h for your domain name to redirect to your Shoplo store.
