    Hi BHWs,

    I just wanted to ask this question as I don't know if this is possible.

    So basically I'm trying to change the vanity name for a clients facebook url lets say for example '/coffeecup to '/coffecupofficial.

    The main issue is that someone has already used '/coffecupofficial and has subsequently changed it to '/coffecup.official

    Do you know if there is any process which I can go through to the claim the name?
    I know you can claim it if it's a trademarked or copyrighted, but as 'coffeecupofficial' doesn't fall into either of these categories, I was wondering if there is anything that can be done?

    Thanks in advance

    Unfortunately, vanity URL's can only be changed once.

    Facebook does not have any method in changing your URL more than once.

    Hello,
    You can make changes in your vanity name of Facebook URL through this process:
    Go to the page, of which you want to change the vanity name > edit page> update info> username >check availability.

    Hey guys thank you for the tips. However I know how to create custom URLs, What I basically need to do is claim a custom URL that was once registered but has been changed
    "The main issue is that someone has already used '/coffecupofficial and has subsequently changed it to '/coffecup.official". I'm not sure if this is possible but if you have come across it before or know anyone who has made it possible, any tip would help. Thanks :)
