URL Shortener

This post is also available in: faفارسی

Sometime in Iran we should re-invent the wheel! Unexpectedly I understood that none of my “bit.ly” Short URL don’t work because this site is blocked by Iran government. For a while I used goo.gl ,but bit.ly gives customers more professional services like hosted domain name.

Finally I decided to set my personal URL Shortener, I chose sml.yt for domain name and installed specified software for it. Hope everything be OK now.

Why we should use an URL Shortener?

There are 5 reasons on (http://sml.yt/o)

1. They make links more manageable
2. They can track and compile click data
3. They can be transformed into social media services
4. They can provide users useful features
5. They promote sharing

I am going to add Number 6
6.They make Unicode links usable.
