What is tinyURL?
tinyURL is a shortened form of a URL. A tinyURL is an alias to a regular URL.

Scenario:

  • 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.
