    Yes, you can use bitley to shorten the URL of the form, for example, your form: http://www.jotformeu.com/form/71235686696369 can be: http://bit.ly/2p75jmT.

    Otherwise, you can check the Custom URL guide we have https://www.jotform.com/help/261-How-to-Create-a-Custom-URL-of-a-Form or custom domain option: https://www.jotform.com/help/261-How-to-Create-a-Custom-URL-of-a-Form

    I'm not sure if the shorter version of the URL will work in iFrame, but I'm also not sure why you need to change that?

    We'll wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    OK, I’m using jotform in iframe to embed in a www.brilliantdirectories.com members profile. I do not want source of the code (JOTFORM) to be easily visable (no offence) I jusdt don’t want to give others my idea……..:)

    Ok, thank you for explaining, I understand :)

    I tested my form, on jsfiddle, but I'm afraid that it will not work like that, with shorter URL, the code just won't work when the URL in it is changed. And the issue is that when you are using the shortened URL, it actually redirects you to the real URL and you can see that by trying to access the shorter URL.

    I'm not sure what could be done about that since when you embed the form the URL will be there.

    You could protect your form from cloning by going to https://www.jotform.com/myaccount/settings while logged in and checking this option:
