What do you have to do when it says: “Domain says SSL unavailable”? This type of problem happens when we connect a new domain to the Shopify. We have two options; we can connect an existing domain or we can buy a new domain fromShopify. In both cases when we are connecting a domain to Shopify it takes sometime to propagate. So, what do we need to do? We just need to check whetherthat connection is successful or not. If the connection is successful and SSLis not coming up properly, we have to wait from 24 to 72 hours. Once thepropagation is done you should see your site properly with the domain name that you have added. To change the primary domain, click on the option that is inthe upper right corner of the connecting existing domain page, now you have two options over here. You can select between adding “www” prefix to your domainname or without it. It is recommended to use only one thing either with the “www”or without it because it will create some canonical errors, so it isrecommended to use it without “www” for the domain name but it is totally up toyou. So, SSL is created by default in Shopify, you do not have to do anythingelse regarding SSL, you just need to check the connection of the domain, if itis proper it will come up within 72 hours max.
