    TinyURL Redirection Script ..... ?

    Hi all,

    I'll be starting my own url redirection service shortly. I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel here but since I need to use these services frequently, I thought I might have my own redirection service.

    While I'm at that, I'll like to ask YOU some questions:
    1) Would you prefer a "keep it simple" approach (like Tinyurl)? Or would you prefer to have advanced features such as passworded redirection? Tracking?
    2) What suggestions would you have to improve sites like tinyurl?

    Finally ... if you can recommend some PHP redirection script with tracking features (that i can get either for free/paid), I'll be most grateful.

    Love to have your inputs ... thanks all! =)

    Bulk Conversion of URLs into Shorter URLs in something that might interest a lot of people IMO.

    I think you could get good traffic for one. Doesn't require a lot of resources to operate. Have you already looked at hotscripts.com? http://urlgap.com/ sells a script. I'm not sure if it's something that you would be interested in. Good look with the production of your site.

    Love to see it once it comes online.

    hi Troy1960,
    thanks for the input. I've had a look at URLGap but it doesn't quite fit my needs.

    @all:
    FWIW, i've just registered StumbleURL.com a couple of hours ago ...

    P.S What do you guys think?

    This is a nice and simple tinyurl script that is going cheap. It is for sale at another forum LINK

    hi dalt, don't worry about it. I've engaged the services of my programmer / designer to create one from the ground up.

    I intend to compete with the best url shortening services around.

    Thanks mate!
