the most common questions people have aboute


It is an URL shortening service. By using you can create short URL address for easily sharing and reduce addresses complexity. E.g: an address like https://this-is-a-very-long/and-complex?address=you-may-wanna-share will be converted to[ABC]


Basically, 302 means the HTTP code for temporary redirects, so you can deliver the right message to your audience. Also, by using, you will get the advantage of all awasome features and first class support we provide.

How does it work?

Well, its logic is not complex at all. 

Once you request an URL to be shorten, the algorithm will calculate a new (random) address for you and will store it together to the original address. Always someone uses your short URL link, we will increase our counters and record some other additional data, such as: IP address and time. Then, you (or everyone else) can later check its statistics page.

By creating a FREE account, you can have all your shorten links indexed in your account's dashboard to track their usage and performance. If you choose to go Premium, you will have access to additional features, such as: custom domain (e.g:; custom keywords (e.g: and priority support.

How can I check a shorten URL statistics?

The general data is available at
If you have an account (free or premium), an specific short link statistic can be seen from your account's dashboard.

Why there is a redirect count-down before redirecting me to the long URL?

It is just because we want your audience to make sure that they want go to the target URL. With the 5 seconds count-down you will give the chance to your audience to give up before be redirected. Also, by giving them the change to decide before being redirected, or even report evil links, you will increse the trust between your audience and you.

Will a link report be sent to the link owner?

No. When someone reports a link, actually, it flags the link for review and there's no notification sent to the link owner, if any. Our team will review the flagged links and decide upon keep it live of remove it. However, if too many reports are given to a single link (boundaries are dynamic) our bots will put that link down automatically by removing it without prior notice.
