Create Safe Tiny URLs with SHUURL


If you receive a TinyURL link or any other link in shortened form, you are unsure as to where the link will lead you. It might sometimes lead you to a malware or other such sites. SHURLL is web service for creating small and compact URLs. It is similar to TinyURL but it also provides you with a small thumbnail preview of the site that you are about to visit along with a site safety rating.

Every URL that you shorten with this service is compared to the database of the Web Of Trust which is a website rating service. After you click on the SHUURL link, you will go to a page containing a thumbnail of the site along with the rating of the site. This will allow you to get an idea about the site that you are going to visit. It requires no registration and allows you shorten URL instantly.


  1. There are a number of them of late. In fact, I was planning to start one and even found a cute domain name for that 🙂 dropped the plan after seeing so many such services. Every other twitter client has one. If you plan to create a twitter client, you can sell this shortening service and monetize it well..
