Today I switched my theme from Debut to Shopify. I want to know do I need to worry about my previous codes? I remember I have added some codes for domain and site verification and google analytics. Please lead me what needs to be done in this situation?

Domain & verification changes are usually applied to the store as a whole, switching themes should not cause any issues.

If Google tracking was added in the Online Store >  Preferences section, it should not be an issue if you switch from Debut to Ella theme.

if you added custom code to the Debut theme files, then if you switch a theme, you will need to reapply the changes Ella.

Hi @Samirana,

As @Nick_Marketing said, if you change theme you will need to add any custom code edits to the new theme as they won't transfer over automatically. The domain and Google analytics would remain the same though and no changes needed there.

Something I did want to highlight is the Ella theme isn't sold on the Shopify theme store and thus wouldn't be supported by Shopify should something ever go wrong. The themes we would recommend you using would be from the Shopify theme store, whether it's a free Shopify developed theme or a paid third party theme sold on the theme store. 

If you're not comfortable making the code changes or switching it over to the new theme, I'd suggest hiring a Shopify Expert to help with it. Let me know if you have any other questions about this or anything else.
