FAQ

What’s the Base URL?

If you use hop, then your redirection links will look like this:
http://www.site.com/hop/name

What’s a Hop Name?

The Hop Name appears after the Base URL in the redirection link. This tells the Link Hopper which destination URL to redirect to.

Does this include statistics and click-tracking?

No, not at this time. It’s a simple link-redirect script.
