What is the best URL shortener?

I'm looking for an URL shortener with a custom domain function. I know Bit.ly but this is very expensive..

    Smarter links for Commerce

    Product PearsonProduct Manager @ Property4Media ยท Written
    One of my favourite companies. It helped me globalize my Amazon Affiliate links, but it also has the ability to add custom URLs into it's system. I'm actually not sure on pricing, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was significantly cheaper than bit.ly. Here is a help article: https://help.geni.us/support/sol...

    Lots of clever options, not just a link shortener, you can localise, AB test, track and loads more too. Essential for Amazon Affiliates, but very useful elsewhere too
    Oh, forgot to say very good value for money

    Convert links into custom emoji ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿซ

    I'm not sure this is the "best" link shortener but it's definitely the most fun. ๐Ÿ˜Š Paste a URL and linkmoji converts it into a lovely explosion of emojis. Example: http://๐Ÿก๐Ÿ†๐Ÿฎ๐ŸŽพ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽˆ.๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ’ฉ.ws

    goo.gl shortener paired with a script on google sheets can help you in saving lots of time and it makes managing multiple campaigns a breeze.

    I'm using Goo.gl daily. Users are familiar with it. So I'll stick with Goo.gl for now.

    New Bitly Chrome Extension

    One-click shorten straight from your browser.

    Bitly has to be one of the most well-known URL shorteners. It is also one of the largest and most established so should be around for a while. The Bitly API allows you to use jsonp callbacks, XML, CORS and data metrics and comes with good quality documentation if you want to integrate it into your own brand.
