What is tinyURL?
tinyURL is a shortened form of a URL. A tinyURL is an alias to a regular URL.
- Let us say your website URL is too long to remember or use in social networking sites like twitter or Facebook.
- You want a short URL that you can easily share.
- You apply for a short URL at one of the websites offering the service.
- The shortened form redirects to the regular URL.
What you need:
- A website or a blog for which you want a tinyURL

- You can then share the new tinyURL.
Note: The original URL continues to function as before, only now it has got a shorter address to remember.
