    I need something like linkcy but I am not using ********.

    I use TheBat! so something similar would be awesome.

    What should I use. Thanks for the help.

    I could maybe help, but I'm not familiar with TheBat! - can you expand?
    Is it a mailer?

    If so, I'd look to generate some sort of string and append it to the links you send out. Then, some php code to get that string, and generate a dynamic url from it - no string, then no url, and you could set a "flag" also, so if no "flag", then dynamic url gets created - if there is a "flag" because it was used already, then no link created.
    You'd then need an .htaccess file which would rewrite the links to a static, hidden, location.

    Tbh, others may come up with better solutions, probably involving curl and or AJAX options, for the method I outlined above I think you'd probably need a database.

    Thanks for responding. I should not have mentioned TheBat its not relevant in this equation.

    I basically need to type in the main link (CPA Landing Page)

    and generate10-20-100,000 links that will redirect to that main URL. Also the link needs to die after 1 click.

    Thinking there is a program out there already but if need to go custom I guess we could do that too.

    A small mod to Yourls will allow you to do this on your own shortener. Yourls is a url shortener script, open-source, and free.
    I have the mod required and, basically, you would generate ONE link pointing to your CPA link, and then generate unlimited variations of that link, by varying characters after a ? in the original short link. The small mod would make YOURLS ignore everything after the ?

    So, that covers link generation - the other issue is your requirement that each variation "dies" after one click - that's, obviously, a good bit more complex, and wouldn't be handled well by Yourls, as it considered all of your variations as one link instead of many.

    Good Luck anyway in your search for a script, it probably IS out there somewhere!
