Bitly is the most popular shortening service on the market. You can shorten, customize and manage URLs with Bitly.

However, is Bitly worth to be paid so much money? The cheapest Bitly price plan costs 900$ per month. Only basic features, which slightly help to save time, are included in the cheapest price plan. The advanced features cost more.

Bitly provides users with a 30-day free trial.
A free price plan allows:

  • Customize a slug and link.
  • Use own domain.
  • Edit title tag.
  • Observe statistics.
  • Integrate with social networks.
