    I am looking for a tinyurl alternative.

    This thing should have many domains associated for a single target.

    e.g.

    http://domain1/ahgds => mydomain.com
    http://domain2/ahgds => mydomain.com
    ...

    Is there such an option available?

    Come on, guys, there should be so many people having had the same problem/question.

    tinyurl is prohibited by many sites. Should be extremely interesting to have a portfolio of different domain names which all point automatically to the same target.

    Code your own up - its easy!
    I did it on my domain http://some-more.info/at/ - for example, if I wanted to redirect to Google, I would have http://some-more.info/at/google with redirect to google.com in the background.

    Also have link-to.info domain :)

    Like you said, if a lot of places are banning Tinyurl, it would be easier with your own domain :)

    If you have questions feel free to PM

    Thanks, fatboy.

    If there is nothing available, I think now to setup that as a service.

    Is anybody interested in having that?

    * Post your link and get say 100 domains all pointing to that link?
    http://domain1/ahgds => mydomain.com
    http://domain2/ahgds => mydomain.com
    ...

    * Automation... put say 10 target links at once?

    * what else?

    Anybody interested?

    you can even redirect it's own redirect code unlike tinyurl

    try clicking this
    Code:
    http://tinurl.us/ed64ad
    (dont worry it comes back/ redirected here)

    I've redirected the url twice. they also tell you how much of the URL have been shortened in %

    I'm making my own version of this, it'll be up next week :)

    With it you can create a batch of max. 500 links per session to one single URL. And also use the site remotely to create short URLs, like:

    http://domain.com/?u=http://www.otherdomain.com/directory/file.php would return a random short URL like http://domain.com/asd123 - which can then be integrated into any website/software. But for batch creation you would need to go to the main website.

    I will probably have it on 2 different domains aswell.

    Finally made the site, here it is:

    Code:
    http://shrunk.it
    It's in beta phase so I'm probably going to be modifying it a bit during the next few days/weeks. And the links may at some point contain ads, most likely an upper frame with AdSense that can be closed by the user, but nothing too intrusive.

    Max. 500 short URLs can be generated in one session, and all directing to one target. URLs are valid for around 200 days.

    Enjoy.

    Congrat, good work, beef!

    To be honest, I actually did not look for that but wanted to implement it / to check if it is already implemented / to check if somebody is interested... does not really seem so, maybe the thread name was misleading. But... good job and good luck and pls do not misunderstand me, I appreciate your site.

    The biggest problem with that is "are you (me/whoever) reliable"... updating the database and redirecting to another target is so easy. Especially for aff links :) And it could be done in a 'hidden' way.

    There are technical possibilites to circumvent that lack of confiance, but they require much work and the big question, if commercial spammy redirecting to aff links is legal, what do you guys think?

    Who cares? Start you own thread and stop annoying and promoting here. Or explain, how a TOS can make your offer legally safe.

    Yeah I get where you're coming from. I have no intentions to change any links, dunno how I'll proove that though. You're just gonna have to use it or lose it I guess :)

    for my page i use turl.us(like tinyurl) > my blog > auto redirect to land page. Plus turl.us is really good because you can choose how long the link is active, and also the / name of the link. Plus most people don't recognize turl.us domain and don't say a thing about the link itself.
