A link can take any name it want's, though its all automatic.

So just say for instance, a link could only choose 4 from the letters (A-z) and the numbers 0-9, so in total it can choose from 36 letters and numbers.

That would be 36^4 which is 1679616 different combinations. But in reality, it can take up x amount of letters and numbers. So rather than it being 36^4, its 36^x.
That looks like this

So you can see, the larger X gets, the greater the possibilities get, upto a point where the possibilities are infinite very quickly (between X=7 and X=8). Naturally a link has 10 characters at least, and if you try 36^10 on a calculator, it will either say 'error' or give it in standard form.

My calculator can only go up to 8 digits. So is i do 36 to the power of 6 it'll say error for me.
