As in registering a company (Sole Proprietorship)?
I am wondering if I should also get a WWW domain name?

Or is it better to wait until I'm bigger and decide then?

Thanks in advance guys/gals

Most important thing is to make videos. You can form a corp eventually, but it is hardly urgent as there is not much risk of liability. Once you show you can make consistent content and you are starting to get significant views, then start to think about making it into a business.

Domain names are cheap, so register any that you think you might use. Also social media.

I was all too excited bubbling with ideas. I noticed the domain name I had chosen was available. Also in order to make a good first impression I thought it would be best if the first viewers where to perceive the channel as one worth subscribing to.
But I guess you're right... if it's not this name I had chosen now, there can always be another later.

Thanks for sharing AF :)

I don't think most youtube channels have websites of any real significance (other than selling merch), and for that the domain name is not very important. You would be driving traffic from youtube with links.

I don't think a domain name is necessary, but at $10, why not.

I would check to make sure the Youtube name isn't already taken.

For example my channel is.
https://www.youtube.com/mattinthekitchen

Because this one was taken.
https://www.youtube.com/inthekitchenwithmatt


Good luck, it's hard building a youtube channel.

Having a domain name on YT is a good idea. There are millions of YouTubers today so you must create your own uniqueness. But still on YT, it's not the domain that makes you popular or more views, it's your content, brand and how you advertise it.
