    All you would need to do is update your link to include the text instead of the URL. 

    <a target="_blank" href= "https://form.jotform.com/62146355769162" rel="nofollow">https://form.jotform.com/62146355769162</a>

    to

    <a target="_blank" href= "https://form.jotform.com/62146355769162" rel="nofollow">Your Dream Vacation</a>

    Here would be your new text:

    The link itself can only be partially customized:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/261-How-to-create-a-Custom-URL-of-a-form

    I was under the impression you were hyperlinking the form somewhere and that you had created the hyperlink to the form in another page:

    http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_links.asp

    Which was what my example was referring to.  If you are simply copying and pasting the URL of the form, the custom URL is the only customization we can provide.
