Think about one case when you first opened up your Shopify account and you just simply tried on using a quick name. After setting things up, you decided to set your store another name and tried changing it through your account. However, you do not know the way how to Change Shopify Store Name as well as how to do it without creating a whole new account as well. So, this article is here to help you fix your problems in every corner of its matter.

Read through this and I am sure that your customers will be inputting or finding my new store name in a simple way.

Can I change my Shopify store name?

The answer is Yes, you can absolutely change Shopify store name. However, before you decide to register any domain, just seriously consider your choice because the business name you use on any business is key to so many things.

Here is some advice that I recommend you to take into considerations:

  • First of all, think about how long has your domain been active.
  • Look at how much revenue you have received through it.
  • What kind of traffic data that you have?
  • What is the size of your list?
  • How do people respond to your list?
  • Why do you choose to change it?

In case your store has been in operation for some time, however, it gained a bad reputation to your business when visitors meet some circumstances that every data is lost, people visiting find the error 404 or the problem of Site not found. It is more likely of you to start from scratch to grow the business with the new name, at the same time, inform the person that was on the early list about the change of the business name.

As a result, the data of your store will be lost as you are not able to transfer data of one site to the other. So, if you are ready to lose all the necessary information above, scroll down our article here to figure out the way.

Using Custom domains

What about using a third-party domain in changing your store name on Shopify? When you have already owned a domain from a third-party provider, such as GoDaddy or Bluehost, so you can totally use it for your Shopify online store. As a result, people will be able to type your URL into theirs and then end up on your site. The third-party domain for your Shopify store has the role for transferring your URL to Shopify or by connecting it to Shopify.
