How to migrate from Rebrandly to Dub.co

If you're looking to migrate from Rebrandly to Dub.co, we've built a custom migration tool that will help you migrate your links in a few simple steps.

Step 1: Get your Rebrandly API key

First, log into your Rebrandly account and navigate to Account > API.

Step 2: Use the Rebrandly migration tool

If you haven't already, create a project on Dub.co.

Protip: Once you create your project, we generally recommend you not to configure your domain until you've migrated all your links. This will prevent any potential downtime for your links.

Then, from your project dashboard, click on the button next to the Create Link button and select Import from Rebrandly.
