Title: How Can I Change Or Beautify My New YouTube Page
Post by: [Not Shown, Login to View] on Oct 18, 2017
Greetings Gurus in the house.
I just created a new youTube account/channel but I don't like the default page, is there any way I could just beautify or just change the page?
Another challenge is how to customize my url.
Thank you all as I look forward to your useful response.

Youtube provides very limited options for customizing/beautifying a channel. These include the channel icon and channel art amongst others. But to get a better idea of your request, if you have a sample youtube channel that has the kind of changes you are looking for please post the link here.

For the URL customization it seems you need to meet certain criteria to qualify. These are:

    - 500 or more subscribers
    - Channel is at least 30 days old
    - Channel has uploaded a photo for the channel icon
    - Channel has uploaded channel art

Your account also has to be in “good standing”, which I’m taking to mean that you don’t have any strikes against you for publishing content that is against YouTube’s terms of services.

You’ll know if you qualify for a new custom URL because YouTube will notify you via email. From there you can take the following steps (via YouTube Help page)

    First, sign into your YouTube account.
    Go to advanced account settings by clicking your profile in the top left corner, then click the settings icon (It looks like a gear). Then click Advanced.
    Under “Channel settings,” select the link next to You’re eligible for a custom URL. This link will only appear if your channel is eligible for the custom URL.
    In the “Get a custom URL” box, you’ll see the custom URL you’ve been approved for. You may need to add a few letters or numbers to make the URL unique.
    Check “I agree to the Terms of Service,” then click Change URL.
    Keep in mind, you can only change  your URL once. When you are sure you have the right URL, click Confirm choice.

Thank you very much, Tony for your prompt response.
Those conditions are quite clear and now I realized am not yet qualify for what I want to do for now.
I guess I have to wait till I meet those condition.
Again, Thanks!

But you can still do a little customization like the channel icon and channel art and arrangement of videos and using a channel video etc
