a) Buy a domain (if you already have one, you can skip to step 2). GoDaddy, Namecheap, 1&1and Name.com are all popular options.

b) Redirect your nameservers to Sniply:

nameserver #1 = dns1.stabletransit.com
nameserver #2 = dns2.stabletransit.com

Done! You can now create snips using your own domain (snip.ly/abc -> mysite.co/abc)

 

 Using Your Website's Domain

If you don't want to buy a new domain, you can also use your existing domain, but you will need to create a subdomain. For example, if your website is mysite.com, you can use Sniply with a domain like sharedby.mysite.com (Sniply links will look like sharedby.mysite.com/abcd). To set this up:

Step 1: Complete steps 1-4 above

Step 2:  Set up a subdomain by adding an "A" record for the subdomain that you would like to use (like "go" or "sharedby") that points to 174.143.185.19.

Here are Instructions for GoDaddy, Instructions for Namecheap, or simply contact us.
