How to Change Initial Store Name Associate with Account and URL

Is there a way to change the initial store name associated with the account and URL?

When logging in, it states the initial store name, is there a way to change this without deleting the account and starting all over? I know you can change the name of the shop, however, I'd actually like to reserve the new name of my shop as a shopify URL.

Thank you!

Hi @SpiritBeJoy.


You can absolutely change your store name. This can be done by going to Settings > Store details in your admin.




While the store name can be changed, you won't be able to change the Shopify username or the URL that is used for logging in, as this is permanently tied to your Shopify account. However, if you add a custom domain and make that your primary domain, the .myshopify URL will not be customer facing and visitors will only see your custom domain. We actually have a great free course in Shopify Learn about the importance of buying a custom domain, you can check that out here! 


Any questions, happy to help. Have a great day.
