Temporary URL generator

Post by nirax » Wed Feb 24, 2010 7:53 am

use this for a temporary URL generator :

http://www.vapurl.com/?url={fullURL}&max_visits=100&max_time=1440

the variables :

max_visits : the number of visit times the temporary URL allows. after that it expires (or vaporizes). i have put default as 100
max_time : time in minutes for the life of temporary URL. i have put default as one day. i am not sure if all values are allowed but you may try.

the temporary URL is alive for either max_visits or max_time whichever is reached earlier.

That's a really useful URL shortener. I hadn't heard of any temporary ones like this. Thanks for posting. :)

vapurl.com seems to be dead...

In its place I've found: http://www.urlgone.com/
However, it doesn't seem to provide a URL based API that I can use to turn it into a Flagfox action.

I've found ShoutKey! useful for creating short-living urls that you can easily pronounce.

Name:

Code: Select all

ShoutKey!
URL:

Code: Select all

http://shoutkey.com/new?url={fullURL}
By default, they live for 5 minutes, just enough to pass them to somebody else.
