What I like most about Bitly is the option to use my own custom domain for shortening the urls. In my case I use 0am.co

I wanted to use my own domain because I thought that in the case that bitly goes out of business or whatever I can take my short urls and just move them to my own server  - but the problem is that bitly locks me in.

There is no official backup solution. At least now with IFTTT you can automatically create a backup while you are creating new bitmarks.

I’ve setup a quick recipe that appends new links to a textfile in dropbox – so go ahead and tinker with it to your liking and get a copy of your shortened links.
