Hide URL Tool
I have been always on the search for a simple, fast method to transform URLs in someway, unlike the conventional URL shortening methods which involves more complexity. I am really amazed at this simple technique and decided to use this on URL hiding.
Why use this tool?
You can use this tool to create scrambled funny urls and share among your friends.
How does this tool work?
This tool uses a rot 13 algorithm, which is basically shifting a character by 13 places. For example, in the url `a` is replaced by `n`, `b` is replaced by `o` and so on. You can find more information about wiki page. To encode a URL you perform single rot13 transform and to decode the data, perform another rot13 transform, you arrive at the original url. The destination url is clearly visible upon decoding and is not opaque like in URL shorteners, where you will never know what the destination url is.

You can also implement this algorithm in your website and the source code for various programming languages including in PHP can be found on this website.
