To operate the FlickRocket shop under a custom domain, you need to set a C-NAME DNS record for the sub domain you want to use (e.g. “shop.mycompany.com” or “www.mycompany.com”) to “shop.flickrocket.com”. You cannot do this for the domain itself (in these examples “mycompany.com”) and you have to use a sub domain. Make sure not to use “A-records” or any form of “HTML-redirects”.

C-NAME DNS records are set with the entity which controls your domain, typically the entity where you have registered the domain. This can be a hosting company or a separate domain registry company.

After you set the C-NAME entry, you should make sure that it works. This is actually pretty easy - just open a command line and “ping” your sub domain (e.g. “ping shop.mycompany.com”) and if the return comes from shop.flickrocket.com you are done. Important: It can take several hours that your changes in the DNs system become live - so if you are sure you have made the right settings and it doesn’t work, don’t panic and try again later.

Once you are done and you have verified it works, you need to enter the subdomain (which now points via C-NAME DNS record to “shop.flickrocket.com”) under Shop/Themes/Integration in the FlickRocket admin interface.

After you have done this, your shop is instantly accessible under your domain.
