    munna
    Like this?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    What do you mean shorten in the form of munna?

    Do you mean shorten like this forum does? eg: http://somesite.com/some/really/long...ds/oh/it/ended

    Or how to alias a URL?

    Then buy the domain name munna.com/.net/.org/.whatever

    And tell your DNS server to redirect to google.com. Or if you're on a LAN, add munna to your DHCP server (pointing to google.com or something).

    No, according to ICANN or whoever, a domain must have an extension (which are limited again by ICANN).

    If it could be shortened like that, why would anyone bother buying a domain name?

    Perhaps he means this - http://tinyurl.com/

    Dunno, I've shorted both the URL and the associated text, and you still want more.
    I'm out of ideas, and have no idea what it is you're trying to achieve.
