Custom Links on Po.st URL Shortener

Follow

When you create a link in Po.st, a random string of letters and numbers appear at the end of the URL. You can edit this random string to be a custom link.

This also works with custom vanity domains. For example http:/thepal.ms/casino.

 

*Custom links need to be unique and not used before. If the link has been used before, we recommend you purchase a vanity domain and you can use the same custom link there. For example: http://po.st/testlink will work on another domain such as http://thepal.ms/testlink. For directions on how to set up a custom domain click here.


When you sign in, enter a link to shorten then click Shorten & Share. You will then see a button called 'Edit Link'.

Edit the text you would like to appear after po.st/ and then click 'Edit Link' in the popup.

Your custom link is then ready to be shared!

If you would like to edit a link that is already saved, hover over the link and click the pencil icon to edit.
