    Next you will need to write a first and last name for your YouTube account. The form fills in this information with your Google account, but you are free to change it manually.

    This way you create a channel associated with you as a person. If that's what you want, click Create channel. If you want to use a different name (for example, a stage name), click Use a company name or another name.

    Inserisci the name you want for your channel, which in this case does not have to be your real name, and press Crea. This process will create a YouTube channel, Google+ page, and business account for that channel.
