Changing a domain target

You can change the target for a domain.

Considerations for changing the target for a domain

Before you change the target for a domain, review the following considerations:

  • Changing the target doesn't change the domain type. For example, if a domain's type was redirect before you changed the target, then it continues to be a redirect type after.

  • If you change the primary domain for a custom domain from one target to a different target, then the primary domain for the previous target reverts to the myshopify.com domain name. For example, if you change the target for johnsapparel.com from an online store to a custom storefront, then the primary domain name for the online store reverts to johnsapparel.myshopify.com.

  • Domains can only be assigned to a target that is in a production environment that is public.
