Replacing TinyURL with Rebrandly
TinyURL was one of the very first URL shorteners on the market, but in the last few years, the product has lacked in innovation, maintenance, and essential upgrades. When looking for a new URL shortener, consider Rebrandly as the best alternative to TinyURL.With TinyURL users can’t:
- Use a custom domain to create short links
- Change the destination URL at a later date
- Retain data for more than 30 days
- Access detailed analytics
- Add retargeting scripts to links
- Easily and automatically add UTM parameter
- And the list goes on…
Unlike TinyURL, Rebrandly does much more than just shorten URLs.
Rebrandly is the leader in link branding. It’s the most complete and reliable link management platform on the market. Our solution provides the easiest way to create, measure, and manage short URLs with a custom domain name.
Here are some of the ways Rebrandly can help your business maximize each and every link.

- Increase link trust

Have a look at these examples from a few Rebrandly customers:

- Jaguar Australia uses jaguarau.click to prompt click-throughs on social media
- Panda Express recreates their brand's name using a TLD: pandaex.press
- Harvard University uses multiple domains for specific departments such as hvrdalum.me for their alumni network and hrvd.me for broader communications
2. TRACK every click to drive better business decisions
Which of your communications drive the most traffic? What’s the quality and composition of that traffic like? Which campaigns are working and which need some more work? Email, Twitter, SMS, QR-Codes, display and CPC ads, and print are only a few examples of the channels every business use to market and communicate products to their audience; are you leveraging them effectively?
