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

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


Number one, you need to have at least 100 subscribers to your channel.

Number two, your channel needs to be at least 30 days old.

Number three, you need to have your banner artwork uploaded.

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


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. So, I’m gonna show you how to do that and it’s super fast, you won’t believe it and very easy to do.

So, let’s head over to my desk and I’ll show you how it’s done. So, here I am on my YouTube channel and I am going to customize 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.

So, 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. So, I’m going to agree the terms and click Change URL. 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 exiting.

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

Go into your Creator Studio, go into your channel. Go 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 customize your YouTube channel. Have fun and before you go, comment below and let me know how you get on and what you’re calling your channel URL name.
