Hosted link shortener VS Hosting a link shortener
"Yours" is probably the best solution when you have the time, the resources and the patience to host and maintain your own redirect and tracking software. But in the era of the cloud, the years of AWS, Azure, Heroku etc... When you can access to great SaaS and Platforms it probably does not make any sense to use a software that you have to instal, configure, maintain and monitor.
Rebrandly is probably the best Software As A Service to short and share URLs using your domain(s) names. And is free with all the most important features.
Of course you can choose many other URLs shorteners, it depends on what you need to do. But when it comes to rebranding your links Rebrandly offers you the best features. In fact you can:
- Register a new branded domain directly in Rebrandly.
