Bit.ly Now Supports Branded URL Shortening
By on January 29th, 2010

One of my favorite tool ‘s blog just threw in a surprise news at us. It looks like Bit.ly is now using custom domains for Bit.ly Pro accounts while shortening the URLs.

Bit.ly Pro Domains URL Shortening

What this means is that when you try to shorten a URL from TechCrunch using bit.ly, Bit.ly will return a tcrc.ch URL instead of the usual bit.ly URL. This is definitely great news as bit.ly is one of the most widely used URL shortening service and it would help the Pro account users to keep an eye on all their URLs being shortened through Bit.ly and not just the one’s that they proactively create.

There is no official announcement about this on the Bit.ly blog, other than a announcement about the Bit.ly Pro a couple of days ago.
