How to point the domain to Shopify (in cPanel)

Shopify offers a full set of e-commerce solutions that are essential to an online product platform. Here you’ll be provided with all the necessary tools and features that are required to create and operate your very own e-commerce website, through an exclusive website-building platform.

When you create an online store on Shopify, it is accessed via Shopify Domain. For example, if you’ve built a store with the nctest name, you can enter http://nctest.myshopify.com into a web browser and your website will then be displayed.

It’s also possible to make your online store accessible via a domain name that’s hosted with AbollyHost, in cPanel. To connect such a domain name to Shopify, you’ll need to do the following:

  • Set up the necessary records for your domain name and corresponding subdomain names in your cPanel account.
  • Add the domain name to your Shopify account.

1. First, log in to your cPanel account and locate the Zone Editor under the Domains menu:

For cPanel Basic Theme:

For cPanel Retro Theme:

2. Click Manage next to the domain name you wish to set up:

3. In this section, you will need to modify a few host records for your domain name, depending on a subdomain you would like to use for Shopify:

(a) To use yourdomain.tld and www.yourdomain.tld, the following host records should be edited:

  • A Record for yourdomain.tld should point to 23.227.38.32
  • CNAME Record for www.yourdomain.tld should be mapped to shops.myshopify.com

To edit a record click Edit >> enter the new value >> click Save Record:

(b) To use another subdomain name, like store.yourdomain.tld, you should add the following record to your existing records:

  • CNAME Record for store.yourdomain.tld should be mapped to shops.myshopify.com

To add a new record, click Add Record at the top of the record list >> choose CNAME record type >> enter required values >> click on Add Record:

Please note that it normally takes about 30 minutes for newly-created records to take effect.

Congrats! You’ve now pointed your domain name to Shopify.

Firstly:

What is blog?

A “blog” is a discussion or informational website published on the “World Wide Web” consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries. Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page.

Today many bloggers face many challeges in differents ways, most expecially when it comes to How to make money online?. The fact is making money online require some techniques, which isn’t expose globally expecially when you just joined the blogging industry.

Many bloggers mostly ask questions such as; “When exactly can i start monetizing my blog?” OR “Can i put ads in my newly open website?” etc.

Really such questions should not be something to ask, even in your first 12months. Blogging isn’t something that we can call business or quick-investment. Going to blogging industry means you have passion for it, not all about making quick money. Really if you can calm and work hard, we can call blogging a life investment. 

Going to blogging is an easy task and something you can join even within a miniute decision. Now that you wish to join, kindly think of a name that can identify your identity online, this also known as Domain Name.

We understand that the other major problem facing in blogging industry is choosing the right web hosting provider , We got you covered on this by provider the reliable and affordable web hosting.

After getting your Domain Name and Web Hosting ready, what next is install your software that you prefer to use, I will advise you to use WordPress as it’s the most used Content Management Software(CMS). There are many ways to install WordPress from your cPanel, but the easiest way is to use softaculous as this take lesssthan 5 miniutes and it’s straightforwad. After installing the wordpress, you will be provided with a direct WordPress admin link, it should be something like ” http://yourdomainname.com/wp-admin/” Don’t also forget the details you used when installing WordPress. Now you can design your website to your own taste and start blogging.

 

Managing subdomains in cPanel

A subdomain is a subsection of your website that can exist as a new website without a new domain name. Use subdomains to create memorable URLs for different content areas of your site. For example, you can create a subdomain for your blog that is accessible through blog.example.com and www.example.com/blog

(cPanel >> Home >> Domains >> Subdomains)

OVERVIEW

This interface allows you to create and manage subdomains for your cPanel account. A subdomain is a subsection of your website that sometimes exists as a subdirectory of your public_html (document root) directory or your account’s home directory. Subdomains use a prefix in conjunction with the domain name.

For example, if the registered domain name is example.com, the subdomain will be prefix.example.com. You can use subdomains to create unique user accounts for “vanity domains.” This is helpful if, for example, you have a blog, or any other type of website that uses a domain specifically titled for a user.

Note:

Visitors cannot view your subdomain immediately. Changes to DNS records may require two days or more to reach all of the nameservers on the Internet.

CREATE A SUBDOMAIN

To create a subdomain, perform the following steps:

  1. Enter the desired prefix in the Subdomain text box.
  2. Select the desired main domain from the menu.
  3. Enter the home directory for the subdomain in the Document Root text box.

    Note:

    This directory contains the files that pertain to the subdomain.

  4. Click Create.

Warning:

Due to the order in which Apache processes its configuration file, wildcard subdomains may disrupt the functionality of proxy subdomains. We strongly recommend that you use wildcard subdomains only when absolutely necessary, or when you do not need to use proxy subdomains.

When you create an addon domain, parked domain, subdomain, or main domain, the system will attempt to automatically secure that domain with the best-available existing certificate. If no certificate exists, the system will generate a self-signed certificate to secure the new domain.

  • If AutoSSL is enabled for the account that owns the new domain, the system will add a request for an AutoSSL certificate to secure the new domain and install it when it becomes available.
  • To open the subdomain’s main directory with the File Manager interface (cPanel >> Home >> Files >> File Manager), click the link under Document Root that corresponds to that subdomain.

SEARCH SUBDOMAINS

To search existing subdomains, perform the following steps:

  1. Enter the search criteria in the Search text box.
  2. Click Go.

MODIFY A SUBDOMAIN

Modify the document root for a subdomain

To modify the document root for a subdomain, perform the following steps:

  1. Click the notepad icon that corresponds to the subdomain that you want to manage.
  2. Enter the new file path that you want to use as the document root in the available text text box.
  3. Click Change.

Enable or disable subdomain redirection

To enable or disable redirection of a subdomain, perform the following steps:

  1. Click the Manage Redirection link that corresponds to the subdomain that you wish to manage.
  2. If you wish to redirect the subdomain, enter the link to which you want to redirect the subdomain in the available text text box.
  3. Click Save.
  4. To disable the redirect, click Disable Redirection.

Remove a subdomain

To remove an existing subdomain, perform the following steps:

  1. Click the Remove link that corresponds to the subdomain that you want to remove.
  2. Click Yes to confirm that you want to remove the subdomain.
  3. To keep the subdomain, click No.
Domains addon and its uses in cPanel

Domains addon and its uses in cPanel

 

An addon domain is an additional domain that the system stores as a subdomain of your main site. Use addon domains to host additional domains on your account.

(cPanel >> Home >> Domains >> Addon Domains)

OVERVIEW

Addon domains allow you to control multiple domains from a single account. An addon domain links a new domain name to a directory in your account, and then stores its files in that directory.

Important:

Your hosting provider must specify a maximum number of addon domains that you can create (greater than 0) in the Modify an Account interface (WHM >> Home >> Account Functions >> Modify an Account). A value of 0 prevents addon domain creation.

CREATE AN ADDON DOMAIN

To create an addon domain, perform the following steps:

  1. Enter the new addon domain’s name in the New Domain Name text box. When you enter the domain name, cPanel automatically populates the Subdomain and Document Root text boxes.
  2. To create multiple addon domains with the same username and different extensions (for example, example.com and example.net ), manually enter a unique username in the Subdomain text box.
  3. To choose a document root other than the automatically populated value, manually enter the directory name in the Document Root text box.
  4. To create an FTP account for the new addon domain, select the Create an FTP account associated with this Addon Domain checkbox.
    If you select this checkbox, additional settings will appear:

    • cPanel automatically populates the FTP Username text box. To select a different FTP account username, manually enter the desired username.
    • Enter and confirm the new password in the appropriate text boxes.

      Notes:

      • The system evaluates the password that you enter on a scale of 100 points. 0 indicates a weak password, while 100 indicates a very secure password.
      • Some web hosts require a minimum password strength. A green password Strength meter indicates that the password is equal to or greater than the required password strength.
      • Click Password Generator to generate a strong password. For more information, read our Password & Security documentation.
  5. Click Add Domain.

To add files to the addon domain’s home directory, click File Manager.

When you create an addon domain in the cPanel interface, the system automatically creates a subdomain. To alter or delete the subdomain after you create it, you may alter or delete the information that the addon domain’s website displays.

Also, when you create an addon domain, parked domain, subdomain, or main domain, the system will attempt to automatically secure that domain with the best-available existing certificate. If no certificate exists, the system will generate a self-signed certificate to secure the new domain.

If AutoSSL is enabled for the account that owns the new domain, the system will add a request for an AutoSSL certificate to secure the new domain and install it when it becomes available.

Note:

The system stores and displays the addon domain’s traffic statistics as part of the subdomain’s traffic statistics.

MODIFY ADDON DOMAIN

Modify the document root for an addon domain

To modify the document root for an addon domain, perform the following steps:

  1. Click the edit icon () for the addon domain that you wish to manage under the Document Root column.
  2. Enter the new file path to the addon domain’s document root in the available text box.
  3. Click Change.

Enable or disable addon domain redirection

To disable or enable redirection of an addon domain, perform the following steps:

  1. Click Manage Redirection for the addon domain that you wish to manage.
  2. To redirect the domain, enter the link to which you wish to redirect the addon domain.
  3. Click Save, or, to disable the redirection, click Disable Redirection.

Remove an addon domain

To remove an addon domain, perform the following steps:

  1. Click Remove for the addon domain that you wish to remove.
  2. Click Yes.

EMAIL ACCOUNTS IN ADDON DOMAINS

Note:

In the following examples:

  • old_account represents the cPanel account from which you wish to move the addon domain’s email account or accounts.
  • new_account represents the cPanel account to which you wish to move the addon domain’s email account or accounts.
  • domain_name represents the addon domain’s name.
  • email_account represents the name of the addon domain’s email account that you wish to move.

You can create email accounts for addon domains. To learn how to set up an email account for an addon domain, read our Email Accounts documentation.

When you remove the addon domain, its email accounts will no longer appear in the cPanel interface. However, the contents for this email account still exist in the home/username/mail directory.

  • If you add the domain back to the same account as the primary domain, an addon domain, or a parked domain, the email accounts reappear in the cPanel interface.
  • If you move the domain to a different account, you must add the email accounts manually and move the contents of the email account manually. The email accounts must follow the same name and domain format that they previously followed.
    • Use the Email Accounts interface to add new accounts, or run the /scripts/addpop script to manually add new email accounts.
    • To move one email account under a domain, you can run the following command:
       mv /home/old_account/mail/domain_name/email_account /home/new_account/mail/domain_name/

      After you run this command, the system creates the /home/new_account/mail/domain_name/ directory.

    • To move all the email accounts under a domain, run the following command:
      mv /home/old_account/mail/domain_name /home/new_account/mail

      After you move the files, run the following command to change the ownership of the new account:

      chown -R new_account:new_account /home/new_account/mail/domain_name.

Note:

Verify ownership of the email account after you move it.

SEARCH ADDON DOMAINS

To search the list of addon domains, perform the following steps:

  1. Enter the search criteria into the Search box.
  2. Click Go.

The interface lists results that match your search criteria.

ADDON AND ALIAS DOMAINS

How to force www or non-www for a cPanel site

It is recommended by Google that your site is only accessible via either www or without www (and NOT both). As such, you should configure a redirect to force one or the other.

We provide a simple facility for doing this…

  1. Login to cPanel
  2. Go to ‘Nginx Cluster Control’ section and select ‘CLOUDNS’
  3. Select the domain you wish to enable the protection for from the dropdown list and click ‘Configure’
  4. Select ‘Application Settings’
  5. Select the preferred option from the ‘www redirection’ dropdown
  6. Click ‘Submit’

Note: If you are using WordPress, you will need to ensure your correct domain (with or without www.) is added to the Settings -> General screen.

Installing a free SSL certificate in cPanel using LetsEncrypt

Installing an SSL certificate in cPanel is easy! Best of all, its free with Abollyhost.

Note: Installing a certificate does will not force your browsers to visit the site via https:// – to do this, you would need to see our ‘How to force your site to use SSL (https) using cPanel‘ guide.

LOCATING THE PLUGIN

Find the “Let’s Encrypt™ for cPanel” icon in the “Security” category, or by searching for “Let” or “ssl” in the top search bar:

The very first time you visit this page may take a few seconds, as it will register an anonymous account key with the Let’s Encrypt™ CA.

THE INTERFACE

The interface is split into two sections.

The first section will list all of your domains that have “Let’s Encrypt™” certificates issued, their expiry, and options to remove, reinstall and view them:

The second section will list all of the domains configured in your account that are eligible to have a certificate issued for. Please note, redirected domains are unable to have a certificate issused.

ISSUING A NEW CERTIFICATE

Prerequisites#

There are two important prerequisites to be met in order for a certificate to be able to issued:

  • The domain name(s) you want signed must be pointing to this cPanel server already
  • The Let’s Encrypt™ CA must be able to visit http://your-domain/.well-known/acme-challenge/xxx successfully.

These directories/files will be created automatically, but you should take care that you do not have any .htaccess rules that prevent access.

Most users will fulfil these requirements automatically.

Issuing Process

First, click the + Issue button to the right of the domain you wish to issue a certificate for. Please note, any you will be able to select any extra domains to include on the certificate in the next screen.

Ensure that all of the domains you wish to include in this certificate are selected as included and click ‘Issue’. The process may take anywhere from 10 to 45 seconds, so do not navigate away from the page.

At completion, the keys and certificates should be installed on the server, with a success message:

If you receive an error message, please check Troubleshooting.

RENEWING CERTIFICATES

Certificate renewal is automatic in the background.

Your certificate will be attempted to be renewed every day from the point it is 30 days from expiring.

The prerequisites listed above for issuing must still be met during the renewal attempts, or the attempts will fail.

You will receieve an email for any attempt to renew, be it successful or failed, to the email account attached to your cPanel account.

REINSTALLING CERTIFICATES

The certificate can be reinstalled at any time through the “Reinstall” action. Possible reasons for reinstalling can be enabling SSL for mail servers post-issuing, or if the certificate was removed from the SSL/TLS manager.

The status column will show the current status of the certificate on the system. If for any reason the certificate was removed from the SSL/TLS manager without being removed from the Let’s Encrypt™ plugin page, this status column will display “Uninstalled”.

REMOVING CERTIFICATES

To uninstall a certificate, it is best to press “Remove” on the Let’s Encrypt™ for cPanel plugin page, rather than doing through the SSL/TLS Manager that comes with cPanel.

This is because our uninstall process also removes the key and certificate from the manager, in one click.

Please note that uninstalling a certificate will not revoke it at the Let’s Encrypt™ CA.

You may wish to back up the private keys before you perform any uninstallations, as they are irretrevable, and you will require them if you want to use any of your previous certificates again.

CONFIGURATION FILE

All configuration and certificates are stored in ~/.cpanel/nvdata/letsencrypt-cpanel. We recommend you keep a backup copy of this file.
