Using a Generic Domain

Using a Generic Domain

13.Sep.2021

Are you a webmaster looking for a cheap alternative to the expensive link shorteners offered by Bitly, Google and other competing service?

 

URL shortening is a great way to share content with people that might misspell your URL. If someone tries to access your website using an invalid URL, usually they will see a page reminding them of what the right one is. But if you use a generic domain as your custom URL shortener (e.g http://bit.ly/xyz), it'll work straight away even if the user has never heard of it before!

 

You're probably aware that many services offer url shortening as a free service for their users. They just go ahead and create a shortened version for you instead of the long one. This can work well for some, but we recommend using your own branded domain to reduce the risk of people missingpellings your links and at the same time providing a more consistent branding experience.

 

If you want to give it a try, we advise you to sign up for Rebrandly and test our service for free! Just 3 easy steps: register on https://rebrand.ly/create-shortlink, add your custom link into your dashboard and access it from anywhere by just typing http://rebrand.ly/xyz (or whatever name you chose)! Give us a try and let us know what you think!

We don't do ads or spammy comments. We operate using Twitter's generous free plans and we never share your details with any third party.
