What is blui.cf?
blui.cf is a custom branded link shortener made by Blui Media. To ensure the best user experience, Blui Media uses blui.cf, with aid from third parties, to gather analytics and warn users about harmful sites. The link shortening service is powered by Bitly. The 'blui.cf' domain is operated by Blui Media.
How does blui.cf work?
blui.cf takes long links and creates an alias, as a result shortening them. Both links are stored in a database. Whenever a user goes to the shortened link, blui.cf redirects he or she to the original link. Since traffic is going through blui.cf instead of directly to the original link, this process allows us to gather analytics and scan for threats.
How can I use blui.cf?
Most links shared by us are shortened using blui.cf. In order to prevent unauthorized attacks, a broswer that supports TLS 1.2 or above is required for blui.cf to work efficiently (most modern browers support TLS 1.2). When a user clicks on a shortened link that is identified as potentially dangerous, he or she is warned with an error message. However, only internal members can create shortened links with blui.cf.
What is the Legacy Link Portal?
The subdomain 'lgcy.blui.cf' is used for the Legacy Link Portal. Any shortened link created before July 24, 2018 is considered a legacy link. During that time, changes to our API (Application Program Interface) made existing links cease to function. As a result, we created the Legacy Link Portal. The Legacy Link Portal allows legacy links to continue to function under a different domain/subdomain. Most legacy links have been converted to use the portal. Links shared on or after July 24, 2018 do not need to use the portal or will already be converted. Advanced users: If a legacy link is not already using the portal, you can simply convert it by adding 'lgcy.' in front of the domain.
