Here are 3 websites that will help you shorten a long, prone to break, URL link to a short, easy to manage, link.
I use this one all the time because the shortened link that is created never expires, and it's a very user friendly process. This site can take English, Japanese, Mandarin, and Spanish. There may be others that take languages other than English, but this is the only one I know that does.
This is also easy to use, and the link never expires. You can also label the shortened link with a nickname.
This site is another that's easy to use, plus it lists other websites that offer the shortening service.
Shortening a long URL makes it easier to handle, especially when sending a link by email.
