YouTube Custom URL Claim Channel Name


  1. Joe Alves says:

    Greetings Pradeep! I am having an issue with my YouTube account and hope you can help me. I have had my channel for over a year now, I have over 700 subscribers, and in good standing, have uploaded channel art, the whole works! But in all that time, YouTube still says that I am ineligibility for a custom URL! Before you ask, I have been to the YouTube help forum MANY times to no avail. No one has any answers for me, no one has been able to help me! According to youtube’s current guidelines I meet all requirements to get the custom URL but my channel just keeps saying that I’m ineligible!! For reference I do have a google+ account if that matters at all- Also, I do have two channels associated to my YouTube account. One of my actual channel, and another that just has an old bio picture and my email address attached. Could that be why YouTube won’t let me have the URL? I’m extremely frustrated as this has been an issue for me for months now and no one us been able to help!! I’ll tell you whatever you wish to know about my account! Please help me with this, I’m at my wits end and need the professionalism that will come with a custom URL!! My YouTube page is at this shortened link:
    I had to use the shortener because my actual URL look so poorly! ?

      Having the same problem and would love an answer.

  3. Is this possible? Two different account with same username?

  4. Thanks, man. I just needed to understand what all the mess is. And it’s good to see the whole timeline of YouTube policies with, so to say, justifications. Thank you for the help. ?

    Hello Pradeep, I was wondering what were the requirements that YouTube uses when evaluating your “display name” as a viable option for your approved Custom URLs … in other words, I am eligible to claim my custom URL but YouTube is picking my legacy username only for the choices in the Custom URL menu and nothing else (like my display name) … and my legacy username is exactly what I am trying to get rid of. 😀
    Much appreciated!
