Url Encryption

Hello Everyone,


Is there any method or approach to encrypt my URL instead of just parameters?

I want to encrypt my whole URL instead or just parameters!

Any Suggestions?  

Hi Vaihav,

Not sure if I understand, you want to encrypt the complete URL from protocol up to the fragments?

Why do you want to do that? 

Not really an answer to your question, but did you consider to generate a https://tinyurl.com/ ?

Hello Dainel,



I want to encrypt my URL for security purpose.

https://tinyurl.com/ will not help for this i guess.

Any other suggestion for security purpose will be appreciated.

Vaibhav




But why if for security the whole URL? I fail to understand why you need to encrypt the domain name.

Hello Daniel,


So instead of whole URL, is there any way i can encrypt my URL from paadnaam to fragment?
