Thoughts of making this


Before using this service, make sure to read the Terms of Service. I wrote this program because i have long been thinking the idea of URL Shortener program because i own short domain names and it would be interesting to do that, and now i did.

If you find a problem with the system, please let me know and i fix it. Development ideas and thoughts are welcome. However, please tell me about them with the relevant clarity and rationality, please let me know kindly and clearly by email what you have in mind or using any other possible contact. You can find all the contact information from bottom of the front page.

I didn't want to use Google sign in because I don't like Google so much that i would like it to be on my website permanently. I had it first and it worked but then came the problem with the release. Google demanded something more about something that i didn't want to give.

For years i have been planning to make my own login system as well. Now that Google was like that, I had a good reason to program and implement my own login system which was the hardest part of this project. Internet doesn't help to give you any real help, tutorials or ways how to do own login system completely and securely.

So, this is really the result of years of just planning and thinking how, putting the pieces together and thinking how it would work. I have not been in a hurry, the idea of doing own login system has been in the plans for years. Of course, taking all the help from the internet for whatever possible that is decent and reasonable but still thinking to myself alot and not relying any words that "somebody says" how it should be because i have to be self-confident about what i do, not just believe what someone else says.



You must first create an account to use the URL Shortener. When you creating the new user account, you can leave the name field blank. When name field is leaved blank, it uses your email address as a name and you dont need to write the name field every time you log in. It is still security risk to leave it as blank. I recommend filling in the name field with a name other than your email address.

After creating your account, you should receive an email with confirmation link in it. To confirm the email address, click on the link in the email. You can then log in to your new account normally by clicking the Sign in button and enter your user account information and click the Sign In button to log in.

In your account, it is possible to add 100 simultaneous url redirects with custom prefix and custom ending. If you really need more, please contact me about it and we can discuss it.

Updating your user account information is done in the same style as verifying an email address. You will receive a confirmation link in the email, after clicking it, in the page that opens, you can continue to make your requested change to your user account. You can add url links to your account, edit them, and copy the shortened versions of urls by clicking the COPY button.
