How to Change Your Destination URL

Did you share a URL with the world, only to forget to install UTM parameters, an affiliate ID, or maybe you pointed at the wrong address. Or even worse, it's going to a 404 not found page.

If you've shared a Rebrandly link and it's no longer working, don't panic!!!
You can easily change your destination URL in just a few seconds.

What is a Destination URL?

In a URL Shortener you have two URL's one is the "Shortened URL" - which doesn't necessarily have to be shorter - and the other is the destination URL (also called "landing page") - where the first link will redirect, or point, to.

A destination URL is the end destination of your shortened URL.

How to Change the Destination URL

To change the destination URL, login to your Rebrandly account and go to your /links dashboard.

  1. Find the branded link you are looking for, either by searching at the top, or scrolling through your list.
  2. Click on the shortlink itself, or the ellipses - "..." on the right hand side to access the individual link page.

 

 

  1. Click the pencil icon to access the destination and URL slug parameters:

 

  1. Change the destination URL as desired. You do not have to delete the old link that you may have already shared. The destination will point to the new address and not the old. Updated nearly instantly.

Note: You can also change the main branded link URL or domain, but doing this will render the old branded short link dead - it will no longer connect to your destination link.

You can change the destination URL as many times as you would like.


Why would you want to change your URL?

  • To point people from a static location, like your Instagram account, to your latest blog post.
  • To take an old link that pointed at least years event and now point it at this years event.
  • To update UTM parameters within the destination URL.
  • To point someone to a more appropriate piece of content.
  • To update a bad or dead link.
  • To redirect users to a new location.
