Include Https:// in the Branded Links you Copy and Share

If your branded domain supports SSL (https protocol) then you may want to share your custom short URLs (Branded Links) using Https:// and not just with Http://. This will improve the compatibility and trust for your links.

Rebrandly allows you to decide how the links should be copied by default: with http or https. This is a specific domain setting and can be accessed from the domain detail page. Switch it on and every time you share a branded link with that domain from the Rebrandly Dashboard or from the Browse extension it will contain the Https protocol by default.

 

 

IMPORTANT!!!!!
This setting should be used ONLY if your domain name supports SSL, if your did not setup an SSL certificate for your domain the use of Https will result in a page error. To setup SSL for your domain and branded links read more here

    Is this feature only offered to people who bought their domains through rebrandly, or should everybody have access to it?  My domain details page doesn't look like the one above - no expiry date, no autorenew options, and sadly no 'copy links with https'.

    (But I do have 'HTTPS links' [support], 'DNS status' [correct], 'Landing page', and 'Delete domain', none of which are shown in the screenshot above.)

    Thanks for your question. The Https for the links you copy/share is available for all domains whether you register the domain from Rebrandly of from another registrar.  Anyway domains purchased from Rebrandly has additional features like the auto-renew.
