    I am trying to make a facebook to direct link to a cpa offer, the problem is that when i copy my aff link from the cpa network
    and paste it to facebook and click on "clicks to website" it says "You've entered a destination that can't be promoted. Please choose a different destination."
    I tried to shorten the link with bit.ly and i get the same result.
    How do i solve this?

    FB simply wont allow direct linking to CPA offers (old news), your only option is to cloak your link

    That is something new for me.
    Anyway, is there a way to cloak the link that does not involve in buying a domain or hosting

    No, not really. With Facebook and pretty much all other major advertising platforms you can only promote landing pages, not direct links. There are plenty of free services out there to build a landing page on (think blog platforms and sites like Weebly).
