To make a short URL from a long one, you can use a URL shortening service such as Bitly, TinyURL, or Google's own URL shortener (which has now been discontinued). Here's how you can do it using Bitly:

  1. Go to the Bitly website or app.
  2. Paste the long URL that you want to shorten into the provided space.
  3. Click on the "Shorten" button.
  4. Bitly will generate a shortened version of the URL that you can then copy and use.


Alternatively, you can use a URL shortening tool like TinyURL by following these steps:

  1. Go to the TinyURL website.
  2. Paste the long URL into the "Enter a long URL to make tiny" box.
  3. Click on the "Make TinyURL!" button.
  4. TinyURL will generate a shortened version of the URL that you can copy and paste.


By using these services, you can easily create short and more manageable URLs for sharing on social media, through messaging apps, or in any other online platform.
