Dear Quentin,

This can be done using a .htaccess file. There is a tool that can be used to create this file for you at:


Once you have the content for the .htaccess file, you would place that in the same directory as your page (name the file .htaccess) and then users would go to something like domain.com/whatever/file or domain.com/whatever-file (depending on the separator specified) and they'd be redirected to the long URL.

There is a lot that can be done via .htaccess files and these types of things can be done manually, however, if you're new to creating .htaccess files and syntax used, this tool makes things a little nicer.

Hi quentin
The Question is “Short Url Problem” And the answer is so simple just go the sweet side www.urlchop.com and type your long or large url and get Very Short Url . If you want any keyword include in your url so it is be possible in this web.
Surely you make your short url….
