Learn more about web hosting
Web hosting is a service that allows you to put your website on the World Wide Web. Some online store builders include web hosting while others require merchants to find a third-party hosting provider, which adds complexity and costs to running a website. With Shopify, web hosting is included.
You need web hosting if you want to put your online store on the World Wide Web. Essentially, everything on the internet is stored on a server somewhere. This server is a virtual storage space that allows people and machines to access the information stored on the server. Web hosting is the service that manages the server storage for you. All Shopify plans include web hosting as a part of the package.
No, you don’t pay any extra fees for web hosting when you build your online store with Shopify. You only need to pay for your Shopify subscription fees, as well as any extra domain fees if you want to have a custom domain name. Shopify’s web hosting is PCI compliant.
You can host as many stores as you want on Shopify. Note that you’ll need to create a new Shopify account for each store you want to create. You can also purchase as many domains as you want through Shopify.
Yes, Shopify hosting includes a SSL certificate. SSL certificates are activated by default in Shopify for your store's checkout, and for any content that's hosted on your .myshopify.com domain. Note that this process can take up to 48 hours, so give it a couple days before you troubleshoot further.
