URL-Expander / URL-Unshortener

urlex.org is a URL Expander that unshortens / deshortens any URL to a long URL masked by any URL-Shortener.

By clicking unshortened links, the HTTP-Referer header ist set to https://urlex.org for your safety.

Note that you can unshorten multiple URLs at once by entering just one per line.

NEW! ⚡️ Lightning Fast Parallel Expansion

Since its creation in 2011, Urlex has constantly being evolved and adapted to keep getting more efficient.

This service already expanded a ton of short-links and unveiled millions of paywall links.

It is the fastest and easiest to use service for safely demask shortened or obfuscated URLs.

We refuse to implement fancy AJAX and cluttery CSS and keep our service simple and effective per design.

Urlex handles each request in such a way that all URLs are expanded simultaneously, instead of one after another.

This drastically reduces the time you have to wait for a response for both, free and Pro users.

Batch Requests (Pro!)

You can only access our API with a Pro account.

Unshorten URLs by simply appending to main address, like https://urlex.org/http://bit.ly/iiLcUI (works without Pro account)

Batch expansion (separated by ***): https://urlex.org/http://bit.ly/iiLcUI***http://bit.ly/iiLcUI

Alternative output formats (txt, json, xml): https://urlex.org/xml/http://bit.ly/iiLcUI

Define custom timeouts (in seconds) to speed up expansion or extend slowly loading requests.

Get all hops (redirects) within JSON and XML output and follow the entire path a URL makes from beginning till the end.

This service is free. However, it is limited to 100 requests per day.

Do not try to exploit it excessively, otherwise your requests might get blocked permanently.

We sell unlimited requests with priority handling options and API access for Pro users!
