Safe, Short URLs
A friend, and my PHP guru, Khalid has been working hard recently on a brand new site. Similar to TinyURLs, he and a partner has set up URL.co.uk, a URL redirection service with a few additional differences.
At present the main difference is that any URL added is checked against a frequently updated phishing database to ensure that the URLs being used aren’t going to scam you of stacks of money! The extra features that should be added soon sound great from what he’s told me, potentially including the ability to edit your URL at a later date and statistics information too.
Anyway, he explains it better than I do so pop over to his site and read his Creating Short URLs post on the subject 🙂
PS. Have a good weekend, I’ll be back on Monday!
