Introducing Free 'selfh.st' URL Shortcuts for Self-Hosted Content Creators

Custom selfh.st URL shortcuts for developers, writers, and other content creators

Introducing Free 'selfh.st' URL Shortcuts for Self-Hosted Content Creators Post image

We've been intentional about crafting a brand at selfh.st/ed that is recognizable and relevant to the content we create. And while 'selfhst' might not come across as an intelligible combination of letters to the general public, we hope this isn't the case in the communities we frequently share our content with. We feel fortunate to have found a strong domain, and now we'd like to share it with the rest of the community.

Starting today, we're offering free selfh.st URL shortcuts to self-hosted content creators of all kinds (developers, writers, maintainers, etc.). We'll work with any of the above to develop a selfh.st shortcut to your specific application or website – simply reach out to our staff to start the conversation.

Check out selfh.st/awesome to see it in action.

Similar to our other content, we're offering these shortcuts free of charge and have no intentions of monetizing or locking them behind subscription models. We're also not benefiting financially or tracking data of any kind from the traffic routed through these URLs.

Behind the scenes, we're currently utilizing our own tools to provide this functionality to ensure we can properly moderate the links that are requested. Should demand exceed expectations, we've begun exploring the various self-hosted URL shortening applications to create a hub for content creators to manage their own links in the future.

Note that we've also reserved some URLs of our own for future internal projects, so creators may not always receive their desired choice of URL should they conflict with an existing one.

Thanks, and happy selfh.st/ing!
