Replug – Product Updates: Spring 2020

Hi Replug Family!

It’s been a while! I hope everyone’s doing well. Let me catch you up to new features and updates released by our team this Spring.  We are determined to make sure you get the experience to our platform; so that you stay productive, healthy, and focused!

Password Protected Links

In a time where everything’s online, and nothing seems to be secure, we understand how valuable privacy is to you!

That’s why with this new update, our users are able to make their links password protected!

So, you can share links with only certain people that you trust.

This feature is available while creating a link:


Make sure to enter a password that contains 6-12 characters, as shown below:


When a user opens a shortened link it will ask the password. On authentication, the user must enter a password and will be redirected to the original URL.

Ultimately, that’s how you make your link-exchanging secure!

Import Links using CSV File

A new feature has been added to Replug Links.

Now, a user can upload a CSV file containing a link and a slug column.

A user can specify which column is for link and slug, as shown here:


Also, if the slug is not provided against a link, replug will generate a random slug for that link.

For instance, it will generate a random slug for ContentStudio URL:


With this feature, we hope to offer you higher flexibility in terms of achieving your outcome!

Link Expiry

A user is now able to set an expiration date to a link.


This feature is available at the time of Link Creation.

When a user opens an expired link with the date that has already passed, such as this:


He will be redirected to alert page with the error “The link is expired”

We are always aiming for better link management and this is just paving the way to that!

Filter by brands in the links section

We have added a new addition to the filters under the links page. Now, you can filter the links based on the brand.

Measuring your brand performance along with their links is just a click away now.

Filter By Brands

Total no. of brands limits issue resolved

Previously in Replug, if you had created 5 brands and archived one them, you were still not able to create a new brand.

However, this issue has now been fixed! If you archive any brand you have created, it will not be counted as an active brand.

By excluding archived brands from the limits, you will be able to create new brands without reaching the limits of your plan.

Remember to archive inactive brands to make way for new ones.

Added Results Per Page for Links

Tired of dealing with the list of endless links? We’ve got a piece of exciting news for you.

Now, you can increase the number of results per page using the Replug links section.

Shows 10 Results Per Page

By default, the limit for the Replug Links results per page is set to 10.

I hope you like these updates. Let me know in the comments how you plan to use them!

UTM tags - Replug

UTM Tracking Through Replug

One of the main objectives of Replug is to crunch raw data and present it in a meaningful form. This data is helpful to our clients in determining the nature, especially demographics of their website visitors. Analyzing the data, you can then customize your marketing campaigns to yield significantly better results. Let’s learn how.

UTM parameters are customizable pieces of text which allow analytics software such as Google Analytics to track campaign traffic. Adding them to the end of a URL can help you figure out which email campaign brought in the most web traffic or whether a certain call-to-action in that email generated more revenue.

The UTM parameter will help you determine where your website users are coming from along with which of your campaigns are performing better than others. This information will give you in-depth insights as to which specific campaigns, channels, buttons you should replicate for more traffic.

How to Add UTM parameter in Replug

There are two ways of adding UTM parameters in the links you share.

1. Directly from the Dashboard

Login to your Replug account. On the main dashboard where you create quick links, you will see a “+Add UTM” parameter.

Here you can directly set the UTM parameter for a link you are about to shorten. Put the link and click “+Add UTM” button. The following dialog box will appear.

Fill in all the sections with appropriate data e.g.

Campaign name: Set a separate name for each marketing campaign in Replug

Medium: Shows the nature of the link e.g. CPC, email, etc. 

Source: Specifies where from exactly the content is generated e.g. Google, Facebook, etc

Term: Identifies search terms

Content: Identifies what specifically was clicked to bring the user to the site, such as a banner ad or a text link

After setting the parameters click to create to generate your branded link with UTM parameters.

2. Creating UTM from side Menu

Click on the option in the top right corner of your screen. You will see “UTM Tracking” in the drop-down menu. Click on it to create your UTM preset as shown below.

This way you can save time and instantly attach appropriate parameters with a specific campaign. You can then login to your Google Analytics accounts and watch the data fillup right in front of your eyes see by selecting the real-time tab.

You can further navigate to Aquisition->Traffic->source/ medium to see all the UTM tags you created and the detailed traffic insights they are generating.

Let us know what you think about this feature.

Encrypt SSL - Replug

Replug Updates

Improved Scalability for a URL Shortener

With the recent influx of new users, we saw a huge increase in traffic on the URL shortener which led to downtimes during the peak traffic.

To tackle this problem, we have scaled our infrastructure, which is now auto-scalable, capable of serving up to 50,000 requests per minute.

Alongside, we added an uptime monitoring so that you can monitor the system status:

URL Shortener - Replug

Custom Domain Registration and Encrypt SSL

We have updated the infrastructure of our system. This helps you to avoid any kind of custom domain registration errors.

Once you have added your domain to the platform, the next step is to point CNAME in your domain registrar’s DNS. If you would like to redirect your root domain, please try adding @ or www. Some of the registrars do not allow the @ option, for that you will have to add www as a HOST value.

CNAME – Canonical Name:
HOST: @ or www

However, if there is a working website on your root domain, we recommend using a subdomain such as or Then follow the convention below.

CNAME – Canonical Name:
HOST:  links or track or (whatever subdomain name you)

If you don’t want to use a subdomain, you should use a different domain that doesn’t have any website working on its root URL.

IMPORTANT: You need to point through CNAME to our URL shortener to avoid SSL error or update the IP Address / A address ( to avoid connection errors the future.  For more details on how to add a custom domain, please read the following article.

We sincerely hope that the above-mentioned improvements will elevate your Replug experience, enabling you to achieve better ROI from the branded shortened links you share.
