How To Change Your YouTube Channel Name?

Do you want to change the name of your YouTube channel? Now you can do it without affecting your Google account.

Google owns YouTube. So you can use your Gmail id to log in to YouTube. But it doesn’t mean that name of your YouTube channel should be the same as your Google account name.

Earlier, it was just to keep the same name for the YouTube channel and Gmail account.

But now, you can use a different name for your YouTube channel.

Today, I will help you with simple steps to change your YouTube channel name.

How to Change YouTube Channel Name?

No matter you have a personal or brand account, you can still change the name of your YouTube channel.

You have two options to change the name:

  1. Change YouTube Channel name from YouTube Studio on Desktop

Can Verified YouTube Channel change the name without affecting ranking?

If you change the name of your verified YouTube channel, then you will lose the checkmark.

YouTube does not transfer the verification icon to the new channel name. It helps YouTube to stop fake or impersonating accounts.

After changing the name, you need to reply with a verification mark.

How to Change YouTube Channel URL?

You can change the YouTube channel URL up to 3 times a year.

Choose recommended URL to avoid misleading channel URLs.

Conclusion:

Changing the YouTube Channel name is easy. It only affects you if you have a verification badge. It can also cause a little issue with your regular visitors and subscribers.

So only change the YouTube channel name when it is necessary.

The best is to choose the well-researched YouTube channel name when launching it.

Still have any question, do share via comments.

Share it with your friends and family.
