urlred - what it does

The idea is quite straight forward, you have a long, easily forgettable website address, and transform it into a much smaller address. To do this, simply enter the original address, and click the 'shrink' button.

This will create a new address that is much shorter. This new address is then accessible from any where you may be browsing, or could be sent in emails, text messages or even used as links on your website and to hide affiliate links / id's. The address will be accessible to anyone who knows it.

Please also remember that all the link codes are CASE SENSITIVE.

quick example

The address below is a genuine address taken from Street Map, and displays the center of London

http://www.streetmap.co.uk/newmap.srf?x=531500&y=181500&z=3&sv=London&st=3&tl=London, +City+of+London.+[City/Town/Village]&searchp=newsearch.srf&mapp=newmap.srf

After entering into this site, that address becomes :-


As you can see the shrunk version of the address is much easier to use, and less likely to be broken when sent in emails

what does it cost?

The service is completely free of charge, no strings, no catches, simply use as you wish.

We do however remind you, that regular checks are made of the urls entered into the site, and anything that is found to violate laws, is against copyright or contains inappropriate material WILL be removed, and the link you were given will no longer work

why do you need my email address?

We only ask for your email address, so we can send a confirmation email containing the shortcut link you create. The supply of your address is voluntary.

Please be assured that if you enter your email address on this site, it will never be given or sold to another company, and will only be used to send a confirmation message.

Yes you can, however the link can be no longer than 10 characters.

Should the link you requrie be unavailable, then one will be generated randomly.
