Branded Links with Https:// (SSL)

How to create branded links that include Https:// (SSL) encryption

Do you need to share short links with Https:// (SSL) encryption? Rebrandly can help with that!

Included in our paid subscriptions is the ability to encrypt all the Https:// traffic from your domain name with an SSL certificate. When you create branded links using Https://, 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://. 

If you are a Free subscriber and want Https:// (SSL) for your branded links, you'll need to upgrade to a paid plan

 

NOTE:

Rebrandly provides the SSL certificate for all paid subscribers. If you would like to use your own SSL certificate you'll need to contact us for custom setup and pricing.

    Great David!

    Two questions:

    If i have my own SSL certificate set up in my server through my cPanel, am i able to share https rebrandly links in a subdomain level? (For example: click.mydomainname.com)

    And, to do that, do i have to upgrade to a paid plan?

    Hi Gonzalo,

    The SSL certificate must be installed on the servers which handle the user requests/clicks with https. If you use your domain or subdomain with Rebrandly via DNS configuration, all the http/https requests will arrive directly to Rebrandly servers, so it is necessary that Rebrandly (and not third-party servers like servers of your hosting provider for example) handles your certificate.

    Yes, an upgrade is necessary, because any pre-existing SSL certificate cannot be automatically installed on Rebrandly servers.
