For example, if your URL is
www.youtube.com/c/YouTubeCreators, you can have your shortened URL (
www.youtube.com/YouTubeCreators) send viewers to the YouTube Nation channel by entering
www.youtube.com/channel/UCUD4yDVyM54QpfqGJX4S7ng in the Redirect URL field.
You can temporarily make your channel hidden by selecting this option. Your videos, playlists, and channel details will no longer be visible to viewers.

- Your community posts
You can make your channel visible again anytime and your content will be public to viewers.
