Further Information

Bitly with a Freenom Domain

A Freenom may not be redirected. However, host your site on http://www.yourfreenomdomain (I only recommend 1 page sites for this!) and have Bitly set up on yourfreenomdomain (no www.) with a redirect to http://www.yourfreenomdomain and you’re all good!

Or, run your site on http://www.yourfreenomdomain and/or yourfreenomdomain and use sub.yourfreenomdomain for Bit.ly.
