What is a URL Shortener?
A URL shortener is an online application that converts a regular URL (the web address that starts with http://) into its condensed format. The user only has to copy the full URL of a website and paste it into the URL shortening tool to come up with an abbreviated version that is around 10 to 20 characters long.
You may have seen it in our marketing pieces. Visit our newsletters to see a few examples of the url shortener in action!
