How to Solve Your Shopify Problem if You Use Fastweb, 3 or Wind

The ultimate Guide to fix your Shopify problem if you work in Italy with some Internet providers.

 

In the last few days our Italian customers at uDroppy reported us that Shopify stores are unreachable in Italy if you are using Wind, 3, Fastweb as your internet provider.

After a few tests our developers were able to successfully find a solution that works, and the stores of our customers are online and working without any problem.

Let’s dive in to discover how you can fix the Shopify problem following these two fast and easy guides.

How to fix it

To fix this you will have to make a super simple change in your domain DNS settings.

Log into your domain provider (e.g. GoDaddy) and go to the DNS configuration of your domain.

Locate your A record, it should have this configuration:

  • Type: A
  • Name: @
  • Value: 23.227.38.32
  • TTL: 600 seconds

And change it to:

  • Type: A
  • Name: @
  • Value: 23.227.38.64 (this is Shopify’s secondary IP)
  • TTL: 600 seconds

Save the configurations and you site will be back online in a few moments.

With these steps you should have fixed your Shopify problem!
