This is not a thread about if URL shortener are good or not, I'm just wondering how long such created TinyURL will be available? Is the given URL available "forever"?

If so - is there a way to override such URL again?


From their website:

By entering in a URL in the text field below, we will create a tiny URL that will not break in email postings and never expires.

Obviously subject to the service existing indefinitely!

By override, do you mean modify the redirection target URL? I can't readily see anywhere that this is stated, although I'm fairly sure it cannot be modified.

  • All links here, except for the one that was created only 23 hours ago, have expired: mattermodeling.meta.stackexchange.com/q/166/5 Jul 30 '20 at 18:20
  • @user1271772 they work fine for me.

  • They are all working for me too now. Must have been a glitch yesterday, when only the most recent one worked, and the rest of them took me to TinyURL where it said "Page not found" Aug 1 '20 at 16:09
