How to use your own custom Brand URL shorten with Bitly setup

30.Jul.2021

hey guys Paul Nicholson here I'm going
to quickly show you how you can use your
own URL your own domain name to share
bitty links and get all the stats and
the information that you want from from
bitty
most of use all if you're watching this
video I'll know what it is you can
obviously share a shorter version it's a
shorter URL it's a URL shortener so if I
go my current website is Paul Nicholson
calm so that's quite long and if I click 
shorten it will give me this bitty link
I can share on Twitter or wherever right
so bitty data gives this code so I can
share it but then what I can do when I
log in is see how many people have
clicked on it
see which four platforms have clicked on
it and it gives me more stats but I
don't want to use bi T del Y I'm going
to use my own so when I share something
I'm going to share it under my own
domain name so I could I could use to
copy the link my darts Paul Nicholson
comma that's obviously gonna be very
long to use on Twitter or anything like
that so what I'm gonna do is I'm going
to go to I'm a gold alley reseller so I
recommend going early for registering
domain names
if you come to hosting doc Paul
Nicholson calm or happy me hosting calm
you'll come to me and I get a little bit
of money if you sign up I'm going to try
and find a shorter URL domain name so I
think Paul P nu K P nu K Co is available
right so four six six pounds 69 I'm
gonna buy this domain name
continue continue I passed all these
added extras it once turning pro was
expiring sumito that yeah one year for
69 there's obviously taxes and stuff I
proceed to checkout
and place my order so I've bought a
domain name for like eight pound
whatever you can get it for wherever
else and then I'm going to go to that
domain once it's set up and what was it
fee and you okay Dachau imagine so I've
got a short URL that I want to use I've
got to now set up bit - forward - bitty
right so what I'm gonna do is sign up
for bitty I've got an account I'll just
create a new one
Paulette poor little send comm if you
want to email me about anything
Joan put in a password without saying
out loud which is what I'm doing in a
previous video I am NOT a robot or at
least I don't think I am you create an
account
start creating bitty links so now I've
got an account I can start straightaway
what I'm going to do is go to settings
sorry up the top here little obviously
menu settings advanced settings branded
short domains and then add a branded
short domain so you'll see you set your
DNS a record to make your branded domain
point two six four and six four alright
so here's a little bit of a time since
I've done it so what you're gonna do
this you do the second point if you want
it to be like this cname up bitty comm
you can you can use this but if you want
to make sure the main one is pointing to
your new domain name let me just see so
it is set alright so the a record needs
to point to
IP address I've just copied and save let
me just check that it's an unceasing I
don't know what that means and we record
to make your brother's your name point
to okay well I've only got one a record
so I'm going to verify it
oh I can't figure PN you okay Co invalid
you was an email not verified all right
so they've emailed me right if my email
was working so I may just call out here
as I log into me emails in cases
anything private that my friends would
not want me to share updates biti
support verify your email verify your
email right and then I taught me though
itself didn't it didn't take me to where
I want you to go so now I will it let me
in verified your brother's your name is
being verified it says appear verify
default is that so
brother's short readout your at URL
remember brand-new short name and saw
your email is verify driver I verified
it so as you can see I'm trying to do it
live and it's been a while since I've
done it but you also see it's free as
well so are we on there we go now so
default domain is now pnu Keiko so if I
go I've got a Chrome browser add-on I'm
assigning my biti account which is I
really have to stop myself allow it on
there reading my password out loud right
so what it will do now see up there PN
Co and then a then a bit e click so if
if I go to pull the gelsen calm and I
pick out if I type it in right if I type
in so if I go to so I've got some ebooks
in the membership section if I go to
time management and motivation so the
obviously the URLs quite long so I click
on the bitty link you can actually click
Share oh this is changes of okay sure
right to Twitter you can connect you
Twitter account so let's connect I'll
just show you exactly at one time keep
me out of here so let me go back to that
oh it was a right so now let me just
refresh it I've got obviously this URL
at the top is very long if I go to share
it's gonna say Twitter poor Nicolson me
your tweet there's gonna be I used to
pick up the
you used to pick up the title time
management ebook by and if I tweet that
your link has been shared so if I come
to Twitter go to time management ebook
now Twitter when you put the link at the
end actually get rid of it but it will
have just shared this if I put ashtag
new new book something like that right
then I think it will show tweeted can
see it's a while since I've thought of
doing it new so now you'll see that
that's a bit of a Twitter tip if you put
the link at the end of the tweet then it
actually cuts it off because it knows
it's pointing to that but if you put it
anything afterwards it will show the
link so now you'll see my link is pn you
kol rather than paul eagleson comm
forward slash time management now also
if I go to my page on Twitter on a
different account and it eventually
loads and then I click on it the beauty
of biti is it should be giving you live
stats on your links right so if I come
back here it's going to show me that
that one time management motivation PN
UK had one click one total click which
we know is from Paul Nicholson's Twitter
particles and M a meet where so you get
more Twitter stats on biti than just
sharing it from your website but you
also get a smaller URL so if you it's
really good for emails if you if I
wanted to email somebody that that page
time management thingy then I can just
go back and copy the B of the short URL
and then email so once the nature is
linked
rather than been a massive link in an
email so I think you get what I'm saying
I think you can see how easy it is to do
where instead of your link saying bitty
or bi t dot ly and then something you
can actually change it to a shorter
version of your your own URL so I hope
that helped I hope it makes sense any
questions come on over to Paul Nicholson
comm ask your questions away if you come
you will see the Q&A section feel free
to jump in sign up and ask any questions
I'll help as much as I can and I hope
that helps hosting for the domain was
happy me hosting comm if you send me a
message I'll give you cost pricing a
nice discount for watching my video on
youtube if you enjoyed speak to you all
again soon thanks guys
