Bitly provides a free custom domain with every upgraded subscription.
This only applies when adding your first domain. So if you have your own short domain, wait to add it until after you've completed the steps below!
To get started, navigate to the Custom Domains section of your account and click on "Get a domain from Bitly."
Here are the steps to complete this process:
- Click on your Group selector button at the top right of the dashboard (it's usually the first few numbers/letters of the group's name)
- Click on "Manage"
- Click on "Custom Domains"
- Click on "Get a domain from Bitly"
- Search for available custom domains using the search bar
- Once you've found the one you'd like to choose, click on 'Select'
- Click "Confirm" to complete the selection
Your custom domain may take up to 24 hours to get verified, however, in most cases it's usually instant. Once verified, you're all set to start creating your custom branded links!
