Buying domains through Shopify
If you don't already have a custom domain, then you should purchase your domain through Shopify. Shopify offers transparent pricing with no hidden or surprise fees. Your domain is automatically set up for you, and you keep ownership even if you leave Shopify.
Domains purchased through Shopify are registered for one year, and can be renewed until you cancel your domain or Shopify store. Custom domains purchased through Shopify start at $13 USD per year. Domain prices vary, so make sure that you check out the prices for the available domains.
