Link Management Platform
You can shorten 150 long URLs monthly (max. 5 long URLs per day), but you won't be able to use platform's Premium Features and have an access to in-depth analytics. Also, just keep in mind that there is no actual guarantee that your links shortened anonymously will "never expire". Moreover, if your published/shared shorten link has more than 100 clicks a day you need to register an account, otherwise your link may be deactivated. Create a new TinyAs account today, and take your business to the next level.
Your links will never expire if you have an active TinyAs account (some shorten links might be expired if there is no even one click on it during the last 90 days). In other words, as long as TinyAs is in a business and you have active TinyAs account, your links will remain live. Therefore, we strongly recommend to register your TinyAs account to make sure that your links remain active at all time.

Obviously, the branded link will be more memorable for your target audience.
