Connecting a PlanetHoster Domain to an Existing Site on Shopify

Introduction

In the Linking a PlanetHoster Domain to Shopify and Wix Platforms article, we read about the preliminary steps for connecting a PlanetHoster domain to a site of any type. 

After completing this process, it is necessary to connect your PlanetHoster domain to your existing site by changing its name servers. With the connection method explained here, Shopify hosts your DNS, while your domain remains registered with its current registrar, in this case PlanetHoster: you will not only continue to pay and renew your domain to PlanetHoster, but you will also manage its settings.

Important! Shopify does not provide nameservers, except for domains purchased from Shopify. So, with Shopify, you can’t put custom nameservers instead of nsa.n0c.com, nsb.n0c.com and nsc.n0c.com servers in the account at PlanetHoster, as you can with Wix and SquareSpace.
For details, see the article Linking a PlanetHoster Domain to Shopify and Wix Platforms .

Note: The PlanetHoster Glossary contains explanations on multiple topics and can be consulted to clarify certain terms.
