@brettwill1025 As a final output, we do the same! -> Shrinking Links!! Now, (and in our opinion better) -> Alice is a self-hosted solution; -> Your Data is Yours: Export your links and stats at anytime - they'll never be monetized or held hostage; -> Migration Assistance: Bring your branded links with you from another service at no extra charge- we'll help! Now, PRICE Bit.ly Enterprise - $995 a month Alice - $250 one-time fee :D thks for the comment! p.s. I saw @Hue. Fock, great idea!

@fernand0moreira and what‘s the difference to a completely free self-hosted yourls.org shortener that‘s worth the price of $250?

You do realize that shortening links is fully commoditized. Charging for that, even at a one time cost, is aggressive imho. Bitly isn't just a link shortener, it is a marketing and customer intelligence platform. The $995 for Enterprise is for businesses with high traffic looking for viral safe ways of pushing brand, tracking audience and aggregating insights. SMBs won't see the same value. I say this because I helped create and execute bitly Enterprise 7 years ago.

@fernand0moreira to be clear, an average second year CS major can create a URL shortener in an afternoon. It isn't rocket science. However, doing it at scale, to the tune of 10+ billion clicks per month isn't trivial or easy. To be clear, in the days when Twitter was fail whale central, bitly never went down, which is a testament to how forward thinking their engineering team was/is. Don't trust me on it, tear through their engineering blog for yourself. Everything changes when you add orders of magnitude to the problem.

Hey guys, meet ALICE. The project we created (http://www.angry.ventures) that allows you to create a shrinked customized URL for any link using your company domain. Wanna explore wonderland? Get in touch for more details! p.s. Why Alice? Because we agree with her! Eternal links are confusing. We believe that shrink them, as Alice does to herself, is the best way to promote your brand.
