How to create branded links that include Https:// (SSL) encryption
We include the ability to encrypt all the Https:// traffic from your domain name with an SSL certificate in all of our plans. When you create branded links using Https protocol, the traffic to your content will automatically be encrypted.
Why is Https:// (SSL) important?
SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. To be able to create an SSL connection a web server requires an SSL Certificate.
How do I setup SSL?
We've taken care of all of the setup for you- so there's no extra configuration required on your end. Every link shared with Https:// will be encrypted from now on. What's more- links copied to your clipboard will automatically include Https://.
Rebrandly provides the SSL certificate for all subscribers. If you would like to use your own SSL certificate you'll need to contact us for custom setup and pricing.
If, as per your Company policy, you need to specify which Certificate Authorities (CAs) are allowed to issue certificates, you’ll need to whitelist Letsencrypt as an allowed CA, for doing so,
on the second-level domain (e.g., acme.co) you have to create a CAA record, value:
0 issuewild “letsencrypt.org”
If Letsencrypt is not whitelisted, Rebrandly won’t be able to generate the SSL certificate.
