    How can I "rename" aff. link?

    Thanks in advance!

    tiny url or buy a domain name ( .info are cheap ) and just html redirect your domain to the aff url.

    Use this code...

    upload it through your ftp to your root folder
    HTML:
    <meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=http://www.yourdomain.com/">

    Hey, its my first reply i am a newbie too, you can forward the domain name to your affiliate link if you are going to use it with only one affiliate link but if you want to use it for multiple affiliate links use the redirect method ( the forward is better as the visitor will never see your affiliate link in his browser and if the domain is easy to remember he may come back without visiting your ad again)

    Hope that help :)

    Rather than using TinyURL, I would run your own "url forwarding" service. You'll have complete control of your link and will never have to worry about it getting deleted. Free scripts that can accomplish this are

    Phurl - code.google.com/p/phurl/
    and
    Get Shorty - get-shorty.com/

    (sorry, can't post URLs yet)

    You can also use php redirector like
    PHP:
    <?php 
    header 
    ("location: your affiliate link here");
    ?>

    It will, just save that little snippet to a file with the .php extension. Then make the appropriate edits and create links to your newly created php file which will redirect to your sponsor.

    or, as i have seen plenty of times. have one page or 10 pages on your website redirect. but keep the main index.html or .php as your main site. and when they click the certain links. it will take them there. or you can do a .swf file and embed it on your main page.
