What is Primary Domain?

The primary domain is the domain name your visitors see when they visit your web store.

Here’s how you can set up your primary domain:

  • Login to your Shopify admin dashboard
  • Click on Online Store –> Domain
  • Under Set your primary domain, click on the Primary domain drop-down
  • Enter the domain that you want to set as your primary domain
  • Make sure you Check the Redirect all traffic to this domain box
  • Click on Save

Your store will now show your primary domain to customers

If you’d like to remove your custom domain :

  • Login to your Shopify admin dashboard
  • Click on Domains
  • Under the Manage domains section, click on Delete domain icon next to the domain that you want to remove
  • Click on Confirm

Note: These are to manage custom domains added to your store. However, Shopify does not allow you to change your myshopify domain. Once you register for a store with a myshopify domain, for example,, you cannot change it on the existing store.

To change your myshopify domain, you will have to create a new Shopify store.
