Today I set my Google Plus Custom URL but there is a mistake in the URL that I didn't notice until now.

Is there any way to change this URL?

As of now, it is impossible to change your Google+ Custom URL. The Google support page says:

Once approved, this URL will be linked to your Google+ page or Profile, so be sure everything is exactly the way you want it. Once your URL has been approved, you can't request to change it. When you're certain, click Confirm.

Change your custom URL

If you want to change the capitalization or accents/diacritics of your custom URL, follow these steps:

Go to the "Links" section of your Google+ profile. A box will appear allowing you to make edits to the formatting. Remember, you can only change the capitalization or accents/diacritics of the URL, not the URL itself.

I guess you're not the only one having such an issue so Google might change this policy, but right now I believe there's nothing you can do.

  • It creates the name as per your internet web address. Thus, it added my domain extension to the name, which I don't want, meaning I can't take any part from it?

No, you can't do it now. This has been a hard issue with Google+ and there is quite a possibility of change in this policy (as Google suggests). But, we have to wait till that change.
