People often send each other links when chatting online. These links can be quite long, but more often than not they're too long. A special site has been created to get around this problem. Yeah I know there are loads of sites like this, but this one is definitely the best I've seen!

Then it's all clear sailing from here: just paste a link into the box, click "Click" and you'll get a really really short URL.

Use a bookmark to make it easier to access the service, simply drag this link (Click↑ ) to your browser. Then just click on this bookmark every time you want to shorten a URL.

Иногда (нередко) данным сервисом пользуются злоумышленники: хакеры, крекеры, спамы, куки, закладки, троянские кони… Очевидно, что это противоречит всем правилам использования сервиса, а также здравому смыслу. Если вы столкнулись с такой cитуацией, пожалуйста, напишите письмо нашим специалистам.
