How to Set a Facebook Fan Page Domain Name

Save

Facebook allows you to create community pages for companies or topics that other users can join in with, contribute to, and support. The Web address for these pages is generated by the Facebook system and is often long and complex. Once the page has 25 or more fans, you can apply for a unique user name for that page. By applying this user name to your Facebook page, its Web address is significantly simplified, making it much easier to communicate to new visitors.

  • Log in to your personal Facebook account.

  • Open the address "http://facebook.com/username" in your Web browser.

  • Click the page you want to add a user name to from the "Page name:" drop-down menu and click the "Check availability" button.

  • Click the "Okay" button to confirm the choice of user name offered by Facebook. If you want to change it, enter your desired user name in the "Username" box and click "Okay."

  • Enter the new address for your Facebook page in the Web browser's address bar to test it. The URL will be in the format "http://www.facebook.com/YourPageUsername."

Tips & Warnings

  • You can also change your personal Facebook page URL to match your user name.
  • Mistakes in the page's user name can't be rectified afterwards, so be careful when entering your desired user name. Facebook's terms and conditions require you to choose a relevant user name for your page, so choose something suitable to avoid the page being removed at a later date.
