Avoid bad surprises
When you click on a link like linkasa.com/4e9F, you won't be directly redirected to the corresponding url.
You will see a temporary page which allows you to have a glance at the associated site and avoid bad surprises (ads, inappropriate content, etc.)
Obviously you can modify your settings to be always redirected.
By adding /preview at the end of a link, you access to the preview page, whatever settings you have set.
