How To Create Short URLs

Computing : Web Sites

If you have decent server level access to your site, then the best way is to use some re-writing method to create shorter URLs, rather than to manually go through and create static pages from dynamic content.

The simplest thing with an Apache server is to use mod-rewrite to create what is known as re-writing rules.

These allow you to specify maps between a URL and the actual filename, using simple statements to map across.

You can do very basic rewrites which are more than enough for most situations to much more complicated ones.

For more information, search for mod rewrite on Google or your preferred search engine.
