Not just Discord, almost every social media platform allows creators to create a custom link for their profile. But this only happens when they achieve some targets on their accounts. For e.g, YouTube allows you to create a custom link for your channel after you hit at least 100 subscribers on your channel.
Similarly, if you want to be able to create a Discord custom link of your server, Discord has a server setting option called Discord Vanity URL. But this new settings tab only gets enabled once you hit the following minimum criteria:
- Reach 30 Boost
- Verified Server
- Boost Level 3
Along with these criteria, you also must have a read-only text channel in order to create your Discord Vanity URL, in short, a Custom Discord Link. Also, in case you’re interested here’s our guide on how to hyperlink in Discord.
