For example, if you're trying to create a short link to a brand's particular product or service, you can put the URL to that page here.
In the link section, choose:
http(s)://—the link will attempt to use the secure version of HTTP if possible but will use regular HTTP as a fallback
http://—the link will only use regular HTTP.
https://—the link will only use the secure version of HTTP.
