How does a Go address work with sub-pages?

Go.Warwick is a service to shorten long web addresses (URLs) to create short, consistent and memorable URLs.

Take the web address (URL) for a department's home page – for example:

http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/arts/architecture

You could request the Go address architecture which you can then cite as:

http://warwick.ac.uk/architecture

The Go address also works for sub-pages. So, a staff profile at the following page:

http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/arts/architecture/staff/janesmith

…can be cited as:

http://warwick.ac.uk/architecture/staff/janesmith

As well as being easier to remember, using Go.Warwick addresses can help to prevent printed materials containing URLs becoming obsolete in the event of a website restructure. If the web address of your page changes, you can simply update the Go.Warwick address to point to the page's new location.
