The Google URL Shortener is Shutting Down, Name.com Can Help
In a recent Name.com blog, BL.INK’s Dannielle Cabler shares why it’s important for Goo.gl users to start evaluating options for when they lose access to Goo.gl, beginning March 30th, 2019.
Name.com offers URL shortening powered by BL.INK to all of its customers. Name.com customers love being able to manage their domains AND links all in one place. And according to HubSpot, BL.INK is one of the most robust URL shortening platforms on the market.
Nothing Beats Branded Links
So why is it so great to use Name.com’s URL shortener powered by BL.INK? It’s simple: branded links. Branded links are the easiest way to promote your brand while gaining access to rich data. Branded links are more clickable, and reinforce your brand with every impression.
Most appealing, though, is that you own your domain, and also your links. This protects you from the pain of losing access again if a URL Shortener goes the way of Goo.gl. Because shortened URLs are associated with your domain, not Google’s or Bitly’s, you can be certain that you’ll always be in control of your links.
