Finding the Best URL Shortener for You When Isn't Enough. 

UPDATE – May 8th, 2018: Please note that Google has announced that it will wind-down its URL shortening service. Current users can access the console until March 2019 when it will be discontinued. Rebrandly will continue to provide custom URLs to users from its own service.
 is a great free URL shortener, but comes with many limitations.

With Googl url shortner you can NOT:

  1. Use a custom domain to create short links
  2. Change the destination URL
  3. Use a Custom URL slug
  4. Make your links private
  5. Easily and automatically add UTM parameters
  6. Delete your links

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 and much more.
