Created my own custom URL shortener

Share Button

In about 3 minutes I was able to create my own custom URL shortener: http://benlang.me using bit.ly. Now whenever I shorten a link on bit.ly it uses benlang.me by default.

Here are the steps:

  • Buy the domain you want to use
  • Sign up for bit.ly
  • Go to settings and you’ll see “modify custom short domain settings”
  • Enter your domain name
  • Change your domain name’s DNS record, they explain how
  • You’re good to go!

If you have any questions on how to do so just shoot me an email.
