Connecting a GoDaddy Domain to your Selz store

To begin, you should already have a domain registered and active with GoDaddy. Once you have gone through the process, you must leave it registered with GoDaddy to keep it connected to your Selz store. If you do not have a custom domain and would like one, check out this article.

If you are on the Standard or Pro plan,  your store automatically comes with the Custom Domain feature and you can add your custom domain by going to Store > Settings > Domain > Manage

After selecting ‘Manage’ choose the option to add an Existing domain. Here you will see similar instructions to the one in this article. 

But you aren't done there, continue reading for the steps you need to take within GoDaddy.


Step 1 - Log into GoDaddy

  1. Go to GoDaddy and log into your account
  2. Now click Domains > Manage
  3. Locate the domain you'd like to connect, click the gear icon and choose Manage DNS


Step 2 - Configure DNS records

You'll need to setup a DNS record to point to your store on Selz. It’s not too complicated but if you have any questions, reach out to GoDaddy and send them this article.

There are two options to set this up:

Option 1 - Root domain e.g. mystore.com

If you want to use the domain just for your Selz store, you need to create two DNS records:

  • An A DNS record and point it to 18.235.252.55
  • CNAME DNS record for www that points to stores.selz.com

Both of these records are required. Your store will be accessible via both 'https://www.mystore.com' and 'https://mystore.com'

Option 2 - Subdomain e.g. store.mysite.com

  • Create a single CNAME DNS record and point it to stores.selz.com

Your store will only be accessible via 'https://store.mysite.com'


Step 3 - Store settings

Go to Store Settings and enter your domain - from the examples above, either store.mysite.com or www.mystore.com. Then 'Save'. 

DNS changes may take up to 48-72 hours to take effect, although it's normally a lot faster than that. Check back in a day and click 'Refresh' to see if everything is set up correctly.
