URL shortening

Obviously, Shlink would not be any good if it was not capable of shortening URLs.

Visit stats

Track all the visits to your short URLs, including stats like location, visitor's browser or referrer.

Custom slugs

Personalize your short URLs by using custom slugs. This will help you easily identify campaigns.


Serve multiple short domains under the same shlink instance. You can even use the same custom slugs.

QR Codes

Generate QR codes on the fly pointing to your short URLs.


Tag your short URLs and classify them for later analytics.

Limited access

Limit access to short URLs, by date range and/or maximum number of visits.

Docker image

Use the official docker image to deploy shlink in a container-based infrastructure.

Real-time updates

Make third party systems be notified as soon as new visits happen, by using webhooks or a mercure server.

GDPR compliant

IP addresses are anonymized by default, making Shlink compliant with different data protection regulations.


Shlink exposes a fully featured REST API that simplifies integrating it anywhere.

API key roles

Limit the resources with which an API key can interact, by domain or only short URLs created with it.

Third party imports

Import your existing short URLs from third parties like bit.ly or YOURLS.

Email tracking

Generate a 1px transparent image that can be used to track emails.
