Hi, @etuskshop 


This is Max from the Shopify Team.


Each account that you sign up for with Shopify comes with a custom URL. This name, cannot be changed. You can change many things about the store name, account details, etc., but, where we store all of those details is linked to the specific URL. 

If you've been working on a trial and your business plan or name has evolved and you want to adjust the URL, you have two options;


  1. Add a custom domain name to your account, then you could connect it to the shop.
    • This could then be set as the primary domain of your account so your customer will then see the desired domain name in their browser.
    • This is also a good practice for improved SEO and brand trust.
  2.  If you need to change the URL for some reason, you'll need to start a new shop and trial period. This would mean starting from scratch. 
    • If you decide to go this route, some exporting and importing of details via CSV might be helpful.

Please let us know if you need any more clarification or help with next steps!
