Wanted: Customized URL Shortener

My hunt for a customized URL shortener still goes on. I do use bit.ly, su.pr, and to an extent, ginx.com, but I’d like something more customizable that supports my own domain name. Su.pr does support URL shortening with your current domain name (pulpconnection.net), but I want to use a different domain for shortening (ie pulp.ly).

So far, I haven’t been able to find a plugin or service that does this. Su.pr is close but not close enough. The hunt goes on…

    http://www.youbundle.com/b/start-your-own-url-shortening-service has a list of several, and there’s also http://urlshort.sourceforge.net/

      Kevin, good to hear from you! Thanks for the links, taking a look. But remember, I’m more a user and developer so I can understand plug-ins and configuration. Rolling my own software not so much.

    Did you nab pulp.ly? I’m still pondering what to do with ry.ly. I was initially planning a URL shortner using YOURLS (http://yourls.org/).

      Yup, after talking with you, I got pulp.ly. I know I can assign that domain to Posterous or Tumblr (like your w.ry.ly) but was hoping to use for URL shortening purposes (mainly for fun).

      @mirthlab pointed me to YOURLS, and I looked at it late last night. Was too tired to figure out how to make it work with a different URL (pulpconnection.net versus pulp.ly).

    […] URL shortener based on YOURLS is working. While the URL shortener market is already full, why not make a custom vanity URL shortener just for fun? That’s the reason for pulp.ly! Just for […]
