SSL is essential for a secure online shopping experience. Shopify SSL is pending, or Shopify SSL unavailable means SSL is not accessible for your site. SSL pending is a Shopify error! It occurs when domain configuration is not secure on your site's content; hence Shopify can't issue an SSL certificate.

There could be several reasons why your domain service does not have a safe connection. However, there is no need to worry because it's a minor configuration problem that you can fix to get your online site into SSL.

Fix the Shopify domain SSL unavailable issue

  1. If you have modified your domain or web server, then wait for 48 hours. It takes around 2 to 4 days for the SSL certificate to get re-verified.
  2. Remove IPv6 records.
  3. Remove or change the CAA record.
  4. Fix the custom domain setting.

And it's done! Following these strategies will resolve your SSL issue, and your domain will be available again.
