I do not want to use tiny url, but I like to change or add link for my my catalog that if someone used it  would re-direct them to the regular url or web page.
I have a link for a flipbook catalog.

http://www.biotone.com/Flipbro/indexbro.html

I like to have a link that is www.biotone.com/spastart

what do I need to add this to my website so that when someone click it actually goes to the link for the flipbro?

Thank you

Sounds like a simple .htaccess fix to me; what stack are you using, and do you have a server admin tool you use, or is it your own personal webserver?

Thank you, I found the HTAccess file but went in another direction.

I created a folder on my website and then added a index file with a redirect statement.
Works like a charm.

I believe that either solution will work but the solution I came up with is similar.
