10 Best Url Shortening services that I Prefer
There are hundreds of url shortening services available out there and tools like these are daily necessity because we cant always share ultra long urls on forums, chat rooms and the most of all twitter they look bad, sometimes break columns and cluttered page looks such as blog comment area etc. These tools also come handy when you want to remember a really really long url because some of these tools let you customize the shortened link.
How did I pick only 10 from a lot of Url Shortening services? My selection is based on 1. Easy name 2. Easy Interface 3. Most Features
What actually these online tools do?
Here we go with the list:
One of the oldest Url shortening service I’ve known. TinyUrl give you preview Url which let other person see original link that has been shortened. You can also set alias to remember your link in future.
This service generates the shortest link ever possible and at the same time easy to remember you can remember it like ‘is good’. You can share your link with ‘-’ (dash) in end to let user preview the hidden long link so they visit the actual Url with confident.
Easyurl is easy to remember like its name says. You can put your own alias to make it easier further more you can select your short link within a couple domain names.
This is my most favorite Url Shortening tool. With Notlong you can name your link like “BestUbuntuThemes.notlong.com” when you generate short link it also provide you an admin link where you can keep an eye on your link statistics.
Another easy to remember Url shortening tool it let you choose link Alias and let you password protect your link. Urlcut’s user interface might not adore you I mentioned it here because of features and easy name.
Everybody knows about dwarfs so here we have DwarfUrl shortening service. Basic interface and let you password protect your link.
DecentUrl is really decent and neat to use. I like the name and link generation is totally unique and looks very appealing. Example: This Post turned out like http://techiesouls.decenturl.com/how-to-access-blocked-websites if its still looking like long then you can change the Alias (how-to-access-blocked-websites) yourself.
Metamark is here because of its feature “Secret” while generating short link you select a secret word, to access that link viewer must have secret word to continue.
I like myurl.in because of its cool name this is why it’s my pick sometimes. You can select custom alias and check real time link stats.
Yep.it is very simple easy to use easy to remember Url shortening service where you can select your link’s custom Alias to make it more memorable. One another coolest and fun feature is that you can make short Urls longer too.

This is you can say bonus Url shortening tool but you need to install it on your own server where you are the admin and you are the only one to make and manage short links on your domain e.g www.yourdomain.com/mylink . You can delete, edit, configure your links your own way.
