The c_new paramter is do that it creates a new short url if one already exists for the url

{
  "hash": "rnRu",
  "long_url": "http://google.com",
  "short_url": "http://127.0.0.1:3000/rnRu",
  "status_code": 200,
  "status_txt": "OK"
}

GET /api/v1/expand/:hash with query rnRu

{
    "start_date": "undefined",
    "end_date": "undefined",
    "hash": "rnRu",
    "long_url": "http://127.0.0.1:3000/rnRu",
    "clicks": "0",
    "status_code": 200,
    "status_txt": "OK"
}

OR if dates are set
