Domain Configuration on Hostinger

Hostinger is a web-hosting provider and domain registrar. For shortening links, you need a personal branded domain or a subdomain. If you don't have a personal domain, you can buy it via Short.io or any domain registrar. Acquiring the domain via Short.io requires no set up actions. The domain will be activated automatically.
