    So what do you guys think? short enough for a URL shortner? I've got a nice URL shortening script on it now but yeah, what do you think could be done with it?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knowledge_base

    Then you monetize with in-line text ads, such as Adsense.

    Currently the URLS will look like
    I can make it so that there is only 4 characters...or 3, which I might do for the start, but it shortens down the possible combinations of URLS you can have.

    I will shorten it to 3, and then increase it as it reaches the threshold. :D

    Really nice for a shortener (and even shorter than "bit.ly")

    I wonder one thing though, how will you monetize this ?
    I know huge url shorteners such as bitly or another one I can't remember are failing businesses as they don't make any profit (they actually make huge losses)

    Did you think about replacing (*cough*stealing*cough*) affiliate links as pinterest does with am'zon or something ?

    Wow, never knew they made a loss actually. Well I'm not sure it looks nice without the adverts right now and I don't want to deter any one from using the site as its just getting started and doesn't have many domains. And ahaha yeah I heard about switching out the domains, not going to do it with this but I was thinking (Bit of a PHP programmer) editing the script and selling it to people who wish to make URL Shortners that they can swap out affiliate links on. But I have the option to add an iframe banner at the top so that when people visit a website the advert appears above them. Might built a PPC/PPI(Impression) website where I can sell advert space on the site if it gets enough traffic. I'm just hoping to build up a big user base. Got any advice on how I could do that?

    Ok course, I was just kidding. kb.lc is obviously short enough.

    Thats a fine one for shortening service. Something like ****** would be nice too where we can show our own ads and send you a portion of the views would be cool.

    a lot of URL shorteners are shorter than your domain now. bit.ly uses j.mp and twitter uses t.co. some will have the same length as yours but it will have some meaning that makes sense such as facebook having fb.me

    Its a great domain buddy.
    But as a friendly warning, its really hard these days to run a url redirect website. Spam reports, Host warnings, Ad agency warnings and hammers and all that.

    Good luck bro
