Short Links Service
The Short Links Service lets you shorten lengthy URL's in the utexas.edu family of domains. The URLs generated by the Short Links service are easier to share in e-mails, through instant messaging (IM), and over the phone.
If you see the below message when attempting to create a ShortLink, you will need to submit a request to have the specific domain you want added to the service.
When requesting a domain be added, specify the domain in the "additional comments" field.
- Create shorter versions of long URLs for example, http://www.utexas.edu/its/news/072008/iphone20.php becomes http://links.utexas.edu/dkswti.
- Track the usage of the short URLs you have created
- Download tracking statistics in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet
- Include an optional splash screen to display the true destination
The short links service is available at no cost to faculty, staff, and students.
