Tinyurl.com

Are you sick of posting URLs in emails only to have it break when sent causing the recipient to have to cut and paste it back together? Then I've found a site for you. By entering in a URL in the text field on site, Tinyurl.com will create a tiny URL that will not break in email postings and never expires.

Are you posting something that you don't want people to know what the URL is because it might give away that it's an affiliate link? Then you can enter a URL into TinyURL, and your affiliate link will be hidden from the visitor, only the tinyurl.com address and the ending address will be visible to your visitors.

With TinyURL, you can also make a smaller URL that will work for any page on your site. Let's say that you have a website with the homepage that is at:

http://www.my-internet-isp.com/~myusername

Entering that URL into TinyURL will create a URL like

http://tinyurl.com/3

With this you can then redirect someone to anywhere within your site by appending a slash and the pages filename to it. So if you have a page at http://www.my-internet-isp.com/~myusername/my-links-page.html, you can use the URL http://tinyurl.com/3/my-links-page.html and going to this URL will forward the visitor to the page in your website.

TinyURL was created as a free service to make posting long URLs easier, and may only be used for actual URLs.

This is very handy for when your using sites like Twitter.com that only allow a limited text.
