There are numerous services out there that let you create small URLs like tinyurl and bit.ly so that you can easily insert into Tweets and other social network updates but sometimes it’s nice to retain brand identity when creating links to your own site.
URL Shortener let’s you create your own short URLs for your domains so users recognize your site instantly, for instance; yoursite.com/YuvbG.
If you wish you can also give users the opportunity to sign up and create and share their own short URLs and monitor how many visits each link has had.
