Challenge: URL Shortener Microservice

Link to the challenge:

Code for api is as per below:

app.post('/api/shorturl', async function(req,res){
  const fullUrl = req.body.url;

  try {
    const myURL =  new URL(fullUrl);
    dns.lookup(myURL.host,async (err,address,family)=>{
        res.json({error: 'invalid url'});
      const record = new UrlShort({original_url:fullUrl});
  await record.save();
  } catch (error) {
    res.json({error: 'invalid url'});

You should validate the url base on the correct format.
