Can I use Simple URLs on non-WordPress sites?

Simple URLs is a WordPress-only plugin like Pretty Links, ThirstyAffiliates, EasyAzon, AffiliateWP, Easy Affiliate, or WooCommerce. It can only be installed on websites or Business domains.

However, you can install Simple URLs on any new or existing WordPress website without interrupting your existing content. In addition, the shortened links you create with Simple URLs can be shared anywhere, such as forums, social media, email marketing campaigns, PDF and Word Documents, QR Codes… basically, anywhere you can share a link.

Heard of Lasso a couple of years ago but didn't have a need for it. Started using it a couple months ago and really been enjoying all the features and how easy it is to use.

We've been using Lasso for almost 2 years. Their team is extremely fast to respond to any questions or issues. I have used other alternatives in the past - Lasso continues to exceed my expectations in every way imaginable. The customization, link checking, and endless new features continue to blow my mind. Highly recommend to any site owner doing affiliate marketing, or selling their own product(s).

A once simple and useful plugin has been remade with an awful and tacky interface that is unpleasant to use. To make it worse, the plugin now loads a CSS file and other clutter to the frontend which is inexcusable for what was once promised to be a simple link redirect manager. Absolutely stay away from this plugin.

In a perfect example of “answering questions that aren't being asked,” this plugin has suddenly become bloated with tons of upsells and features we don't need. For years, I used this plugin precisely because it did one thing... beautifully. Simple redirection and link shrinking, perfect for affiliate link management. Now, I'm bombarded with upsells for a bloated feature set I don't need. Why not release all those features in a NEW plugin, and leave Simple URLs alone? Before forcing users into an “all-in-one” solution for affiliate marketers, it might have been wise to first determine what solution your plugin solved in the first place. Now I've got to figure out how to migrate hundreds of redirect links out of SimpleURLs to a new plugin. So, thanks for that.
