Also, to publish posts to Facebook with Rite.ly URLs, you will need to use at least one custom domain.

With Rite.ly Pro you can replace rite.ly with the domain of your choice. You can do this with the RiteKit Package or any paid tier of Rite.ly. In contrast, you need to be on the $149/month tier or higher of Snip.ly to get custom domains:

1. Purchase slots for custom domains in Rite.ly

See Upgrade page:

Add as many custom domains as you need. You can add more later, as needed.

2. Set up DNS of your domains

Login to your domain manager (GoDaddy, Namecheap, 1&1, Name.com etc.) where you bought your domain and setup your DNS records according to instructions in https://rite.ly/domains/

DNS Setup Instructions

Note: Make sure no website is running on the domain or subdomain you want to use for link shortening. For most, that means you will use solution b, below, and create a subdomain in your DNS.

a) For domains

Add following A record to the DNS:

Name (host): @
Value (content):
TTL: 3600

b) For subdomains

Add following CNAME record to the DNS:

Name (host): (your subdomain)
Value (content): rite.ly.
TTL: 3600

3. Verify your domain in Rite.ly

Go to https://rite.ly/domains/, enter your domain name and click Verify. Please note that DNS changes made in the Step 2 might take several hours to propagate. You may need to verify your domains after several hours from changing DNS records.

4. Choose the domain when creating a Link Ad

Important: The Domain of an existing Link Ad cannot be changed. If you wish to replace rite.ly domain with your own domain, you will need to make new Link Ads.
