Various Forms of URL: Tiny, Huge and Ugly

Yeah, the title might be a little confusing but the intent of this post is clear. I intend to bring to you two services which are related to URL Lengths.

The two services which I am going to talk about in this post are TinyURL and HugeURL.

  • TinyURL, as the name suggests is used to shorten the length of the URL making it more easy to read and usable as well.
  • HugeURL on the other hand, is a service, which can be used to make a URL look cryptic, long and UGLY as well ( all forms in one URL).

Let me now write little about the features both these services provide.

TinyURL which definitely is one of the most and widely used service these days provides the following features:

  • TinyURL shortens a cryptic looking URL to make it look more readable.
  • TinyURL can be added to your browser’s toolbar.
  • Redirect to any page in your website.
  • Hiding affiliate links.

HugeURL on the other hand is often not much heard of service. But again, you never know when you might use such services as well.

Examples

Let’s assume that the URL intended to be reformed is https://technofriends.wordpress.com/2007/10/21/my-list-of-5-best-firefox-extensions/

Using TinyURL, the URL becomes http://tinyurl.com/2pp24n

Using HugeURL, the URL becomes

Both the above forms finally point to the same URL only. So if you have any URL’s to be shortened/lengthened go ahead and try it out.
