    Hello,

    I have a slow web connection and it did not shorten the link that I tried out. Also, the domain is not very short, for example, I own http://w.bb and could also use it to shorten links if I wanted.

    Last but not least, what guarantees do you give to people that your link will last two years from today? That is the problem with shortners nowadays and the reason why people only resort to big places like google and bit.ly

    Some good points. I plan on a diff domain soon.

    As for the them being valid in two years. That's a great point and I will make a blog about it. I intend on it being around for quote some time.

    I like the look but I think you should move the box up on the page a bit. My eye is not drawn to the URL box. It's on the bottom half of the page and the eye is not naturally drawn there. It may seem trivial but every little bit helps! I think you also need to tell people what to do.
    "Enter your URL here"
    Never assume people will figure out what to do.

    Nice Site. But i am having a doubt. Can you compete with other sites who are providing this service? goo.gl, bit.ly are two big sites i think

    I am not aiming to compete but rather be a useful tool and we aim to implement features which hopefully will make us unique in the future.

    Looks good, but the domain name makes the whole site kinda worthless.
    I mean, the URL is so long that it doesn't really work that well as a shortener.
    The only purpose I see for using this site now is to cloak links.

    Oh, I'm sorry for not trying out the service first. =)
    Should have done that before posting.
