For example, PewDiePie's channel homepage link is https://www.youtube.com/user/PewDiePie, while mine is https://www.youtube.com/channel/CHANNELID.

Can I get my channel link into this format: http://www.youtube.com/user/CHANNELNAME?

The /user/ URLs are legacy URLs. These can no longer be used if you created channels off late

Example: youtube.com/user/partnersupport

Depending on when your channel was created, your channel may have a username. Even if your channel name has changed since you chose your username, you can still use this URL to direct to your channel. Unfortunately, existing usernames cannot be changed. Usernames are no longer required and they are not created for channels today.
