Long URLs

by Barbara J. Feldman on July 8, 2002

If your Web site is on a free server (such as space provided by your Internet service provider or Yahoo! Geocities) you might suffer from long URL syndrome. You know what I mean. Long Web site addresses that look like http://yourinternetserviceprovider/users/~yournamehere/mybestphotos are unwieldy, hard to remember, and difficult to click on in email messages because they often wrap onto two lines. Help yourself to a shorter URL at TinyURL ( http://tinyurl.com ) or Shorl ( http://shorl.com/ ).
