Description

Hello Guys, Welcome to my course. No coding required to take this course as this is not the coding course. If you want to setup your own URL shortener & not pay the money to bitly/owlly kind of service then read on.

URL shorteners are everywhere from googl to bitly to owlly. We use URL shortener most of the time on internet knowingly or unknowingly. How about having your own URL shortener with your own domain? What if you can do below things for free:

  • Not paying a hefty bill to bitly for hundreds of thousands of short URLs.
  • Use your own domain which you can buy at just $9/year from anywhere
  • You can have all the key features of Bitly like custom short URL
  • You can have beautiful geo map to check from where the clicks are coming.
  • You can have an APIs as well to short URL using programming or in blog automatically

In this course I will show you how to setup a powerful URL shortener on live domain for free. We will start from launching the server till shortening the URL using the jQuery, JavaScript or PHP via that server/service.

You can also commercialize the technology on your platform in any manner and make some good money. You don't have to be a coder or programmer to take this course. This is not the programming course on building URL shortener from scratch.

I hope you will be able to launch the service & enjoy it for full commercial or personal use.

  • Anyone who is fed up of paying hefty cash to premium URL shorteners
