What happens to the Rite.ly links I've shared if we stop using Rite.ly, or stop using Rite.ly with custom domain?

If you just leave the paid tier, Rite.ly Pro and continue with Rite.ly Free, and if your DNS settings stay the same, your Link Ads will show until you hit the limit of link clicks for the free tier. Then the URLs will redirect to the original URL but not show the Link Ad anymore.

If you stop using Rite.ly and were using it with custom domain

If you completely go to another service and change the DNS for the domain, the Rite.ly links you have shared will not work. There is no way we can make the links work at all because the requests will no longer be coming to our servers.

Note that for links shortened with Rite.ly, Facebook and LinkedIn will not accept them. This is beyond our control; FB and LinkedIn are now blocking all short links created of full URLs. So, if using RiteForge, RiteBoost for scheduling posts, we suggest that you do not shorten links for posts you schedule to LinkedIn or Facebook. If just using Rite.ly, even with custom subdomain, please use them in Tweets, emails, IG comments - and everywhere else - just not in FB or LinkedIn.
