Your URL is looking a bit ugly, er, BUT it’s not that hard to change.

Before you can customise your URL, there are some criteria that you need to meet. And, they are these four things below.


1. You need to have at least 100 subscribers to your channel.

2. Your channel needs to be at least 30 days old.

3. You need to have your banner artwork uploaded.

And, 4. you need to upload your profile image to the channel icon.

Ta-da! Magic happens in seconds, promise! Keep reading.


If you have these four things done, then the process is really simple and very quick to make your URL whatever you want it to be for as long name is available. I’m going to show you how to do that. It’s super fast and you won’t believe how easy to do.

So, here I am on my YouTube channel and I am going to customise my URL right here, right now. As you can see at the moment, it is just a jumble of letters and numbers, upper case, lower case and it’s not very attractive.

I’m gonna go into my Creator Studio > go into my channel.

Now, it’s on the Status and Features page. If you scroll down then at the bottom here to Custom URL.

It tells me that I am eligible and I can claim it here. I’m just gonna click that button; You’re eligible for a custom URL > Claim it here.

Custom URL > Here’s how you’ll look on YouTube, youtube.com/c/JustinRosu, which is exactly what I would like.

I don’t want to add anything else to it. I do actually want it to simply be my name. Next, I’m going to agree the terms and click Change URL, and confirm my choice.

And, whoopy dee, look at what we have here. The C stands for channel and there we are. My URL has been updated. How exciting.

If you also fit the criteria, then go do what I did.

Go into your Creator Studio, go into your channel. Then into your Status and Features, which is the default. Scroll down where it says Custom URL. And, it will, it should say Enabled or it should say Eligible and then you can enable it.

It really is that simple to customise your YouTube channel.
