​​​​​​​To transfer your domain to Shopify, you'll need to follow these steps:

Verify Eligibility: Ensure that your domain is eligible for transfer to Shopify. Only certain domain extensions are supported for transfer. You can check Shopify's list of supported domain extensions to confirm if your domain is eligible.

Prepare Your Domain: Before initiating the transfer, make sure your domain is prepared by completing the following tasks: Unlock your domain: Contact your current domain registrar and request them to unlock your domain. This allows for the transfer process to proceed smoothly. Disable privacy protection: If you have privacy protection enabled for your domain, disable it. This is typically done through your domain registrar's control panel. Obtain the authorization code: Request the authorization code, also known as the EPP code or transfer key, from your current domain registrar. This code is required to initiate the transfer process.

Start the Transfer in Shopify: Once your domain is prepared, follow these steps in your Shopify admin dashboard:
Go to "Online Store" and select "Domains."
Click on the "Transfer domain" button.
Enter your domain name and click "Next."

Follow the prompts to complete the domain transfer request.

Confirm the Transfer: After initiating the transfer, you'll receive an email from Shopify with instructions to confirm the transfer. Make sure to check your email and follow the provided steps to confirm the transfer.​​​​​​​

Approve the Transfer with Your Current Registrar: After confirming the transfer in Shopify, you'll need to approve the transfer with your current domain registrar. They will likely send you an email asking for your approval. Follow the instructions provided in the email to complete this step.

Wait for the Transfer to Complete: Once you have approved the transfer, the domain transfer process will begin. The time it takes for the transfer to complete varies depending on the domain registrar and extension. Typically, it can take a few days for the transfer to finalize.

Set up DNS Settings in Shopify: After the transfer is complete, you need to configure the DNS settings in Shopify to ensure your domain points to your Shopify store. Shopify provides step-by-step instructions for updating your DNS settings, including adding the necessary DNS records.

Verify and Test: Once you've updated the DNS settings, verify that your domain is correctly pointing to your Shopify store. You can do this by visiting your domain in a web browser and checking that it loads your Shopify store as expected. Test different pages and functionalities to ensure everything is working correctly.

It's worth noting that some domain registrars may have slightly different procedures for initiating a domain transfer. Therefore, it's essential to consult your current registrar's documentation or contact their support for specific instructions on transferring your domain to Shopify.
