URL Shortener Service

turn-long-shortA URL shortener converts a regular URL into a more condensed format. In other words, it takes a long url and makes them shorter.

University of Hawaii Students, faculty and staff can create short UH URLs for Google Docs, social media, and other online communications. This service is similar to other shortener services such as Google Shortener or Tiny URL, but since you are required to login with your UH username and password, your list of shortened URLs are saved on this service. Shortened URLs do not expire but they can be removed via the interface when they are no longer needed.
