Create Short URL’s with Your Own Domain Name

Create Short URL’s with Your Own Domain Name

shorty-logoYou have probably noticed a rapid influx of URL shortening services over the last year – from bit.ly to tinyURL and literally 50+ more. Well now you can create your own.

Shorty is a simple tool which provides a tinyURL-like service for your own domain. So, you can have a URL like yourdomain.com/keyword and redirect to any URL on the web. What’s great is that it’s a piece of cake to set up and you can even track how many times each of your short URLs has been used.

5ThirtyOne gives a great run down of how to install the tool, and the wonderful MakeUseOf blog have an in depth review of the app too.

**Update**

Robin Waulters of Plugg and Techcrunch has just recommended a service in the comments below which I hadn’t yet heard of.

The service is called Hover and by the looks of it, it offers a slicker and hosted service which you can also use your own domain for!

Thanks Robin.
