Feature Release: Telnyx URL Shortener

Telnyx now provides a URL shortening service with custom links.
Today, many customers utilize public URLs in their SMS and MMS messages. And these Common URL shorteners are increasingly being blocked or flagged as SPAM. By using a Telnyx custom URL, you can more quickly update your public URL, helping ensure that your messages get through the first time, every time.
We currently support URLs that begin with https://, http://, www., or the following shorteners:
bit.dobit.lygoo.glht.lyis.gd
ow.lyrebrand.lyt.cotiny.ccx.co
tinyurl.comcarebank.sitedrvline.sitehealthsettle.pw)

You’ll be able to define custom URLs to communicate your use case and add your own brand name to the domain, making your links instantly recognizable to customers. And when a recipient trusts your link, they’re far more likely to click.
You can configure the Telnyx URL Shortener in the Mission Control Portal in just a few clicks.
Here’s how:
  1. Sign in to the Telnyx Mission Control Portal.
  2. Click on Messaging in the navigation menu on the left-hand side.
  3. Click the edit symbol [✎] for the Messaging Profile you want to use.
  4. Under Outbound Settings, you’ll see URL Shortener. Select your use case from the dropdown, then add your brand name to the domain.
  1. Save your changes.
That’s it. You’re all set to start using your new link.
