Turn your URL into Short Link using Netlify Redirects

I don't like those short links URL, why?
Bitly, Tinycc, Cutly URL Shortner

Because i want to have my own domain name with it.
You should buy a short domain name or 2 words domain name.
Mine is fajarsiddiq.com and so i start using netlify redirects.
Is very useful, i use this to share like a short links with my domain.
I use this to put on my youtube description links of my playlist videos.
So to learn how to make this, you follow this simple steps below.

βœ…1. Create a plain text file on your github
βœ…2. Create the syntax "/coffee" "https://buymeacoffee.com/fajarsiddiq"
βœ…3. Deploy on netlify, done!
