Can SSL be used with short links?
SSL (secure sockets layer) is an encrypted link between web server and browser. Before using HTTPS:// protocol with your short links, an SSL certificate for your shortening domain needs to be created and installed on our servers.
- Go to your Manage Domains page.
- Click to edit your domain (pencil icon).
- From the popup box, click "Get SSL-certificate" button. After SSL is successfully enabled a green padlock icon will appear next to your domain.
You will also have the option to switch between displaying all of your links with either http or https. Domain redirect settings (check or un uncheck the box next to "Use HTTPS for short URLs").
It is global and affects not only shortening form, but Manage URLs page and also URL sharing and QR-code generation. This setting doesn't affect API responses because short URLs in responses are given without protocol prefix.
