How To Setup a Custom URL Shortener With Your Own Domain Name

16.Aug.2021

hi guys Craig here thanks for joining me
today today I'm gonna show you how to
set up a custom URL shortener with your
own domain name so what is a URL
shortener anyway and what's what's it
good for
well it basically allows you to do this
so you can take instead of short links
like this that you know shortened a very
long ugly link you can turn it into
branded short links like this so you can
have your site and then deal of the day
so that's ultimately the use case that
this is for now I'll show you exactly
I'm gonna set up my own branded link
here and I'm gonna show you from a big
long affiliate link so this is a great
tool for affiliate marketers I'm gonna
use the tool called rebrand Lee and what
rebrand Lee does is a bunch of things
for your URL shortener so it's a
platform that allows you to do link
masking link shortening link tracking
link retargeting rotating and
swapping and changing these are all
really valuable use cases for a whole
bunch of different reasons I don't want
to get into each of these too much but
again shortening is the biggest one for
most people it's taking a big long
affiliate link and turning it into
something short and easy so here's an
example let's say you have the domain
name of acne acne dot pizza or you know
whatever your business is Jerry's dot
pizza
you could then have these very short
domain names you can then have a URL
slug like pepperoni which is like a
keyword and then you can even add emojis
into that so you can use this as
something to as a branded URL that
people can you know remember very easily
in print marketing or other marketing
but also you have all kinds of
capabilities to track these links so
that's just a bit of background if you
want to learn more there's links down
below to go and check it so but what
we're gonna do is this is my rebrand Lee
dashboard so I've been using this free
URL shortener you can get an account
there's a link down below and you can
create these kinds of links here so
rebrand lee slash groove pages rebrand
lee slash entrepreneur accelerate this
takes me to my group so if you look at
this
particular one you can see it's a long
URL then I shortened to this right we
can take other things for example let's
look at experts secrets book so we've
got a really long affiliate link here
and we shorten it or we brand it with a
very meaningful name here using the
shortener so you can track these links
as well there's all kinds of neat
features that rebrand Lee brings but you
know we'll get into that another time so
what we're gonna do is I registered a
new domain because I want to actually
set up domains here where I have my own
URL so I came up with link to dot site
so I registered it here on UNAM and got
this domain name and then I've added it
in here just by adding a new domain name
clicking here adding it you could search
on here as well or connect to donate I
already wanted to connect one because I
have all my domain names over on Ino so
again once you get in here I've already
verified this but you just have to set
up a simple a record on your domain host
which can be done on Imam for example
right here as you can see I just put
this address in to an a record no other
records so you don't want it to go
anywhere else you just want all traffic
to be redirected to rebrand Lee if you
set it up right you'll get a nice big
green check mark and you'll be good to
go to use all those features so once we
have this site you get a nice green
thing you can go back to your links and
now you can create links using this new
domain so let's create a new link I'm
actually take traffic secrets which has
got a nice long affiliate link here and
we're gonna we're going to turn it into
our own custom domain branded URL so
link to site and now I'm gonna call this
traffic oops
traffic
see crits and boom will create it and
there we go I've got my own branded
domain and my traffic secrets so I'm not
sure if this is propagated we can see if
this works but ideally you click here
and boom takes us to traffic secrets so
that's how you set up your own custom
URL shortener using rebrand Lee and you
know I'm domains so if you have any
