Z.Pe – Short URL Shortener August 27, 2009Posted by Ced in Online, Services.
Z.pe is a URL shortener service that creates shortcuts to regular URLs. We do have quite a lot of these kind of services, but z.pe is one of the shortest ones.
"Tiny URLs are basically shortcut for long URLs, each tiny URL is mapped to a long URL, when a person visit the tiny URL, s/he will be redirected to the original long URL. Tiny URLs are provided by a third party, such as z.pe, and are usually very short (less than 20 characters including the protocol part). The name Tiny URL can also be credited to TinyURL.com, which was the first popular URL shortening service” [z.pe]
- one of the shortest URL shortening services (u.nu is another)
- easy to use
- shortened URL never expires
- uses 301 redirect
- based on Google AppEngine, for reliability
Get nice and short URLs in a zip! (or z.pe, rather)
