To make a short URL from a long one, you can use a URL shortening service such as Bitly, TinyURL, or Google URL Shortener. Here's a general step-by-step guide on how to do it:

  1. Copy the long URL that you want to shorten.
  2. Visit the website of a URL shortening service.
  3. Paste the long URL into the provided box or field on the service's website.
  4. Click on the "Shorten" or "Generate Short URL" button.
  5. Wait for the service to generate the short URL.
  6. Once the short URL is generated, copy it from the provided field.
  7. You now have a shortened URL that you can share or use.


It's important to note that URL shortening services typically offer additional features, such as tracking the number of clicks on the shortened URL. Some services may require you to sign up for an account to access these features, while others may offer them for free.
