Custom subdomain for shortened links

When you use the link shortening feature, the default domain of the short link is snrs.it. In this article, you will learn how to configure link shortening to use your own subdomain, which is recognizable to customers. This enables you to brand and personalize your links.

Note:
  • During this configuration, you will need to contact the Synerise Support team.
  • Only a subdomain can be used. Root domains aren’t supported.

Existing campaigns don’t need to be updated after the domain changes, their messages will be sent with the new domain.

  1. In your hosting, create a subdomain for Synerise URL shortening, for example short.storename.com
  2. Configure a CNAME DNS entry for the created subdomain:
    // For Azure Cloud deployments:
    NAME                        TYPE   VALUE
    --------------------------------------------------
    short.storename.com.        CNAME  cname.snrs.it.
    
    // For Google Cloud Platform deployments (currently only available in Belgium):
    NAME                    TYPE   VALUE
    --------------------------------------------------
    short.storename.com.        CNAME  cname.geb.snrs.it.
    Note: After creating a DNS entry, you may need to wait 24-72 hours before it becomes active.
  3. Contact Synerise Support and provide the subdomain name.
    Synerise Support updates the configuration of the workspace with the subdomain.
  4. If you want to use your own certificate:
    1. Prepare an X.509-format certificate.
    2. Deliver the public key as a .pem file to Synerise Support.
      Important: When you use your own certificate, it is your responsibility to monitor its expiration time and re-generate it.
  5. If you want Synerise Support to provide a certificate for you:
    1. Contact Synerise Support to request the certificate.
      Synerise Support generates a certificate by using third-party solutions such as letsencrypt.org.
    2. If your domain has CAA records, add the following record to the root domain or subdomains used with Synerise:
      short.storename.com. IN CAA 0 issue “letsencrypt.org”
      
      Important: If your subdomain does not use CAA records, you do not have to add them.

Result: The shortened links change from the Synerise domain to your subdomain. Existing campaigns don’t need to be updated.
