Bitly Alternative

Finding the Best URL Shortener for You

Bitly (free) is a great free URL shortener, but comes with many limitations.

With Bitly you can NOT:

  1. Change the destination URL
  2. Connect more than one custom domain
  3. Select a custom keyword after the slash
  4. Keep your data for more than 30 days
  5. Make your links private
  6. Easily and automatically add UTM parameters
  7. If you decide to pass from free to paid features the starting point is $500/month
  8. There is a limit of 15 characters for custom domain

And the list goes on...

Out of these limitations is why we created Rebrandly. We want you to have full control over your links. We offer most of the above features for free.

But if you don't want to use Rebrandly for one reason or another, we have created a blog post to walk you through some of your other options. Read The 6 Best URL Shorteners and How to Choose the Right One.
