How a URL shortener works?
Basically, the URL shortener tools use 301 redirects to the actual links. When a user submits a long URL to make it short, the application saves that long URL address in the database and assigns a random slug or identifier to it.
For example, if a user submits a long URL like https://this-is-a-long-url.com/example-slug-for-long-url, it creates a random slug for it like hUI9Qx and hence the result short URL become https://biti.ly/hUI9Qx.
When someone pastes or writes this short URL in the browser and hits enter then the system fetches the slug from the short URL and searches for its actual long URL where it will perform a 301 redirect.
