Please note: This service is for work related URLs and must not be used for personal reasons.

Examples

Pha.site addresses can be published with or without the http:// as web browsers will automatically prefix this if it isn't present.

The PHA news article on sun protection:

http://www.publichealth.hscni.net/news/don%E2%80%99t-sizzle-sun-during-heatwave
Can easily be shortened to:
http://pha.site/dont-sizzle-sun-heatwave


The URL for this BBC news article isn't very descriptive of the page content:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-33804625
This can easily be rewritten as a more descriptive link:
http://pha.site/hand-washing-web-programme-helps-reduce-infections


This PHA campaign site:

http://www.getalifegetactive.com
Can be shortened so it can easily be printed on keyfobs, USB pens etc.
