How to configure branded custom domains
Branded domains allow you to use a custom domain of your own to shorten links via utm.io.
People are wary of clicking on generic short domains like bit.ly because they don't know what to expect from it. (It could be a great piece of content but also spammy junk).
Branded domains are a great way to standout from the crowd and build recognition and trust for your brand, while still getting all the benefits of having a clean short url.
