    I'm wondering if there is way I could get an custom URL without an 100 subs on my channel or do I really need an 100 to get one for my channel on youtube ?

    I'm only at 59 subs on youtube and really want an custom url for my channel

    Nope. It is a rule Youtube has enforced and since Youtube is the one who grants you your custom URL, there is no way around this. You just have to be patient and establish your channel as best as you can.

    It'll be a nice goal to achieve when you get there!
    Theres lots of these functions to "unlock"
    E.g. once you get 1000 subs you can do live vids

    Is this a thing? You need 1000 subs to go Live? I didn't know that :(

    EDIT: Okay I just checked my account setting and it says I'm eligible for Live and I'm nowhere near 1000 subs. I see what mean though about unlocking different things :)

    1. No you don’t need 100 subs to have a custom url. You can also link an associated website to bypass the 100 sub limit, that’s what I did when I first created my channel. Look at youtube’s documentation on custom url’s and follow their directions.

    2. You no longer need 1000 subs to go live, and that was only on mobile. It’s available to everyone now.

    It is difficult to find information on this, I may need to search from desktop and not mobile. Here’s an article detailing it some if you scroll down a bit: pradeepsingh.com/custom-youtube-url

    I do remember having to place a code on my site to verify it with google and such.

    I was sure that the 100 subscribers was a Youtube rule. That is all we hear anyways:) I never heard that you can link an associated website and then bypass the 100 subscribers rule så that´s news to anyway:) I could do live videos too when i had less than 1000 subs (not that i need that feature:))
