Link expiration

The “Link expiration” feature redirects users to a new destination URL after an old one has expired. It happens without changing the short link.

You set a long link and the time when it should be updated. When the link loses its relevance, users are automatically redirected to a new destination URL.

If you do not set the expiration URL, customers will face an error page with the following message: “THE LINK YOU ARE TRYING TO ACCESS HAS EXPIRED.”

Note: Link expiration is available for a PERSONAL plan, as a minimum.

  1. Log in to Short.cm account.

  2. Shorten a link or use an already created one.

  3. Open a pop-up window for editing.

  4. Choose "Set expiration date" tab.

  5. Specify the date and time, when the link is expired.

  6. Input a new destination URL to the "Expiration URL" field.

  7. Save.
