Registering for a New Account

Government employees with .mil, .gov, .fed.us, .si.edu, and .state.xx.us e-mail addresses can register for an account without assistance. If you are a government employee with a different e-mail address, but you meet the registration exceptions, please e-mail us. We can help you register.

When you create a new Go.USA.gov account or request a new password, an e-mail is immediately generated and sent. E-mail us if you don't receive the automated message and we can help.

Custom Short URLs

Currently, we do not support the creation of custom short URLs, such as Go.USA.gov/mylink or Go.MyAgency.gov. Check our About page for more details and e-mail us with any questions.

Domain Exceptions

If you want to shorten a non .gov, .mil, .si.edu, .fed.us, or state.xx.us URL, please review our exception criteria. If you believe your domain meets the criteria, please e-mail us.


If Go.USA.gov's analytics do not match another tool, please check our About page. We're happy to help if this doesn't address your question - just e-mail us.
