When creating a golink, name it something that can easily be remembered by your team. Selecting the right name can be the difference between teammates quickly accessing your golink, or having to search GoLinks just to find a link. We recommend keeping the golinks name short and sweet.
To help create a memorable name, you should be aware of the following naming constraints.
Golinks naming conventions can only have the following characters:
- A through Z
- Number 0 through 9
- underscore character _
- dash character –
- Any ASCII character supported by most languages
There are also some additional requirements:
- No emojis
- No special characters other than _ and –
- You will see
"d" is reserved for our directory. Select another link name.if you try to create go/d
- Only lowercase characters can be used
- No spaces

A golinks name will resolve regardless of the underscore or dash characters when using it as a redirect. You can create a golink name with punctuation, for example go/all-hands, and any of the equivalent golinks will resolve. For example go/all_hands or go/allhands. This pattern helps remove confusion when shared verbally. For this reason, you may not create duplicate golinks with different punctuation.
The golink go/d is reserved for the golinks directory, so it cannot be used. You can use any other single character for your golink needs but this one is reserved for implementation purposes.
