Free Short URL Script: Shorty

Similar to TinyURL, a short URL service can be created in minutes with Shorty.

Shorty is a PHP script for creating shorter, human readable links from long URLs.

Short URL Script

A reason to prefer using Shorty for personal use rather than TinyURL or similar services may be eliminating the risk of these services becoming offline and losing your links, as you can use this free short URL script forever.

Shorty has an admin interface where links can be organized and clicking statistics can be viewed. You can even have a RSS for your links.

  • Yeah, Shorty is great. Pretty easy to install, and it has plenty of uses.

    Some WordPress users may want to check out the GoCodes Redirection plugin. It does a similar thing, but it integrates with WordPress.

  • @GnoM3, I had seen some websites using the script, I believe that it can be an installation issue or they have updted the script and the problem is with the script. Not sure, sorry.

    hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended
