FAQ

+Where is QR code used?

There are number of possible applications. It is predominantly used in manufacturing, sales applications, advertising your commercial and personal websites and blogs, sharing contact information (company address, e-mails), and GPS coordinates.

+What is QR code not good used for?

QR code can store very little information. Although it can keep binary data, it does not have the capacity to store image or audio/video data, or large blocks of text.

+How does your service work?

Our service is a combination of URL shortener and QR code generator. You can use both of them at once ("Shrink link") or the QR code generator alone ("QR code only").

+How does your URL shortener work? What are target and short URLs?

The URL shortener is a program which will generate a link ("short URL") that will automatically redirect you to your desired "target URL". The target URL can be almost every valid URL address beginning with http:// or https://. The short URL is automatically generated by our system and has a pattern http://q9.sk/[suffix]. Suffix is a random string by default, but can be edited.

+How does your QR code generator work?

The QR code generator is a program which creates a QR code that encodes the short URL. When you change the short URL, the QR code will also change. You may want to think about changing the short URL to something you like before you share your QR code publicly.

+What is the difference between the buttons "Shrink link" and "QR code only"?

With the first button, you can shorten your target URL to generate a shortened link. This will also create a QR code of your short URL. The second button will generate only the QR code of any string, so you do not have to enter a valid URL address to generate the QR code.

+I have no time to read! What is the main difference between Static and Dynamic mode?

The main difference is that the Dynamic mode allows you to change your generated links anytime you want. In addition, you can see the statistics of your short links in daily, weekly and monthly line charts and tables. But as expected, the Dynamic mode is only for registered users, because you will have an account, in which you can manage your links and see your statistics.

Static mode does not allow you to change any of your Short URLs or QR codes once they have been created. You can also use Static mode without setting up your own Account.
