Neat! All bitly Pro Fee-Based Features are Now Free

From the bitly Blog:

Since launching in December of 2009, our bitly Pro whitelabel service has grown to power over 10,000 custom short domains, including but by no means limited to (The Gates Foundation),, (Diddy), (His Holiness the Dalai Lama), and (South Park Studios).

To make our whitelabel service available to as many of our users as possible, we are not only bringing bitly Pro out of beta — we are building it right into the core functionality of bitly itself. As of today, every bitly user can set up a custom short domain from within their bitly account settings, free of charge and with no waiting period. Just register the short domain of your choosing, point it to our servers, and hook it up to your bitly account at or by selecting “Settings” from the drop-down menu under your username.
