Bitly is a popular URL shortener that lets you create short links, which can be used in your marketing campaigns, social media posts, and more.

How to migrate from Bitly to Dub.co

If you're looking to migrate from Bitly to Dub.co, we've built a custom migration tool that will help you migrate your links in just 2-3 clicks.

Step 1: Sign in with Bitly

If you haven't already, create a workspace on Dub.co.

Protip: Once you create your workspace, we generally recommend you not to configure your domain until you've migrated all your links. This will prevent any potential downtime for your links.

Then, from your workspace dashboard, click on the button next to the Create Link button and select Import from Bitly.
