How To Setup Shopify Store on Subdomain

Tech Support is a Joke – I sat on hold for the chat feature for over an hour. When I finally got a person and explained my problem, he pasted in a link to an article. That I’d read first thing and tried already. Then, each time I’d make a comment, it took him an average of 7 minutes to respond, usually with a “please hold for 3-4 minutes.” He took 7-11 minutes to get back to me each time. This is not the only time this has happened – this is my normal experience with #Ipage technical support. It’s beyond frustrating, and why I’m moving hosting companies. S K, London, UK

This is a short tutorial on how to setup your shopify on your own sub domain that you host of your personal hosting account. Super easy to do.

    I followed you step by step. Now when I go to my main WordPress site how do I view shopify? I'm still setting up shopify so it's not visible to the public but is there a way that I can see it? Sorry not a techie 🙁

    Extremely helpful. Can Anyone guide me on setting up the subdomain in Google Analytics? And do you guys keep the same Facebook Pixel ID from your wordpress to your Shopify site? It seems like you do based on other big sites, but I just want to make sure…
