URL Shorteners

The main website I use, is hosted on Google Sites. While I could buy a domain name and redirect to it, another option is to simply use a short-url. There are number of these available on the net, here are just a few of them and the results you can expect from the generated short-urls.

Long URL - http://sites.google.com/site/dev4webapps/
