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.”
