I want to create a facebook page that has my domain name like this :

http://www.facebook.com/TrimHold

But I can't find the way.

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated. Thanks.

you need to set your username to TrimHold in the facebook settings somewhere. BTW, you do know that this is just not the place for such a question? This is not the Nerd Herd. –  Here Be Wolves Oct 29 '10 at 5:20
    
The title of the question is a bit misleading, people think you want your domain name to point to a facebook page. –  Evgeny Oct 29 '10 at 18:53
    
That's not a domain name; that's a URL. –  Lèse majesté Oct 29 '10 at 18:56

Go to http://facebook.com/username/ and follow the instructions.

Warning: Once you choose a name for your profile, or a page owned by you -- you will never ever ever be able to change that name or create another profile or page with the same name.

Good luck!

PS: If you just want your domain name to point to a facebook page, use a 301 redirect to the address you will get after you do the above.

I thought you were allowed one username change/transfer? I remember doing this for our company's facebook page. We had one page that the owner created using all caps (a very annoying habit of his), and so when I realized that I couldn't rename the page, I just created a new one--this time using proper capitalization--and later transferred the username over once that page gained enough followers. But I remember reading that this could only be done once. –  Lèse majesté Oct 29 '10 at 18:56
    
could be it is allowed only once. still, that warning is well placed. –  Evgeny Oct 29 '10 at 19:09
    
Usually you can't. All uppercase vanity URLs were allowed a long time ago, and Facebook makes exceptions based on set URLs to conform the new rules. Thus you may have been able to revert that setting and set a new vanity URL according the new ruleset. –  DKOATED Aug 17 '11 at 13:57

To be able to assign a vanity URL for a Facebook page, you need to get 25 fans first. When you reach that goal, a new setting pops up in your fanpage settings, allowing you to set your Vanity URL.

Be careful though: Once set, there is no way to change the vanity URL again.

You can't create a facebook page on your own domain unfortunately. The only way is to create on facebook itself, the social networking plateform.

You can however, put these facebook widgets to use to create your existence on facebook or get more fans/users.
