Short URLs are useful to provide a short version of an URL that may be too long to fit in certain Web forms that limit the length that the URL can have.

This package provides a complete solution to create short URLs that can be run on any domain that you control. It uses XML files to store the short URL information instead of regular SQL based databases.

Read this article to learn more details about how this notable PHP package works.

The package PHP Short URL Generator is one of the few PHP packages that was considered notable recently because it does something that is worth paying attention.

The basic purpose is: Create short URLs storing them in a XML database

Here follows in more detail what it does:

This package can be used to create short URLs storing them in a XML database.

It can take a given URL and associates it to short key string that can be used as the base of a short URL.

The package can also take the short key string and returns the associated long URL after finding it in the short URL XML database.

Each access to find the long URL of a given short URL string will increment an associated short URL hit counter for statistics purposes.

Notable PHP packages can be often considered innovative. If this package is also innovative, it can be nominated to the PHP Innovation Award and the author may win prizes and recognition for sharing innovative packages.

If you also developed your own notable or innovative packages consider sharing them, so you can also earn more visibility for your package.
