    I have been using the URL shortner arranges.it for several months. I have about 60 of my affiliate links shortened through them.

    Yesterday I went to verify that one my links was still directing to the correct landing page.

    To my surprise and HORROR all I get is a white screen that says:
    "This IP is being shared among many domains.
    To view the domain you are looking for, simply enter the domain name in the location bar of your web browser."

    I checked it on 3 computers with all different IPs and in seperate locations. I then went on their site to the "newest 20" link and none of the new links work. Same error.

    They have no contact info.

    I guess I'm screwed right?

    Nice considering I just finished a photoshop image ad with that address AND did a batch to rename 100 of them AND uploaded all 100 to my online photo storage site. All in preparation of posting ads.

    I don't know what to do now.

    I don't want to waste any more time and energy on ANOTHER URL Shortener website that is going to implode.

    I guess my best bet would be to just set all of the landing pages (about 40) as re-directs through my website???

    Is that what you would do?

    The only problem is that my website isn't 100% ready yet. So, I don't necessarily want people visiting it just yet.

    This sux!

    i use secret script to shorten my urls. this isnt what it was really made for, but it can be used as a url shortner and it would be hosted on your domain so you wouldnt have to worry about it imploding on you. check the member downloads section for it

    Hey Bizzy, try this out: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-sp00f-free-referrer-faker-url-shortener.html

    It's by Barbacaminitu, creator of Gump, and it seems pretty promising. Give that a try and let us know how it goes...should fit your needs pretty well I think.

    One thing you learn with time is to try and avoid depending on third party services as they are never here to stay...or not usually anyways.

    I'm a SHE by the way not a HE.

    And yea, I got a PM about buying one, have no clue about buying something like that to begin with. And when I went to the domain given there was nothing there. So, yea, didn't reply. Sorry...

    I was waiting for some more suggestions before I buy anything.

    I searched and searched and never found secret script.

    I checked out sp00f and that is pretty close to what I need I guess...not quite what I was looking for.

    I just hate using tiny url and really didn't want to use my domain either.

    So, yea, you guys are right...never again with the 3rd party. It just sucks to have all of the work I've done FLUSHED down the drain and have to start over with my ads and everything.

    What really sucks is how the other URL company was set up was PERFECT for my needs and now I can't find anything else like it. But, if I did I would just go with them and then find out in 4 months that I'm back where I started AGAIN.

    I'm so sick of WORKING and WORKING and WORKING and getting NOWHERE!
