YouTube Offers Custom URLs To Fit Your Branding
Way back when you signed up to create your YouTube channel, the name you wanted may have been taken, or your band name, startup moniker or branding may have shifted since then. You were stuck with that fan confusing URL, until now. YouTube is offering creators with 500 or more subscribers custom URLs.
Starting this week, if you’re a creator with at least 500 subscribers, you may receive emails and in-product notifications if your updated custom URL is ready to claim. You’ll see several options waiting for you that are based on your channel’s description, Google identity and associated websites. When you want to pick your URL, all you have to do is follow these instructions. Once you pick one, the new URL will automatically direct fans to your channel.
