I know that links can be posted in comments made below YouTube videos, but some addresses are very long and look quite ugly. I may use a URL shortening service to shorten the link, but this is a complication.

Is it possible to hide a link behind a visible clickable text?


To make moderation easier, it is not possible to link a custom text to a URL in Youtube comments. Only plain links are clickable, such as:

  • https://www.example.com/xxxxxxx
  • http://www.example.com/xxxxx/yyyyy
  • www.example.com/
  • example.com
