One of the easiest and most straightforward methods to send hyperlinks in Discord is by copying a desired URL from a web browser:

This can be possible by first opening the “TinyURL” official website and then pasting the link that a user wants to shorten. Next, click on the “Shorten URL” button:
After that, a new URL will be generated that can be copied under the “TinyURL” field:
Once a URL is copied, then a user can paste it anywhere in the private message as well on any server.
Method 3: Sending Hyperlinks on Discord Using Webhooks
A user can send hyperlinks using a webhook which is a feature offered by the Discord application and can be implemented using the below steps.
Step1: Select Server Settings
First, navigate to the server where a user wants to send the hyperlink:

Step 2: Create a Webhook
Next, go to the “Integration” tab and then click on the “Create Webhook” button that appears on the right side:
A random name will be generated which can be changed and this name will be responsible for sending the hyperlink. Next, choose the channel name where the hyperlink needs to be sent and then press the “Copy Webhook URL” button and proceed to the next step:
Step 3: Paste the Webhook URL
To paste the webhook URL, first, open this link which is basically an embed generator, and then click on the “Open App” button:
Next, paste the URL under “WEBHOOK URL” and based on that “MESSAGE ID” will automatically be generated. Also, any content that needs to be displayed along with the URL can also be written inside the “CONTENT” box:
Step 4: Create a New Embed
Now, scroll down and select the “Embeds” option and click on the “Add Ember” button to create it:
