Hello, welcome to dizy.be!

What is dizy.be?

What is dizy.be, you ask? Why, it's a URL shortening service that tracks URL's to see how hot a link is! I know, I know, there are so many out there. However, we're not looking to compete with Bit.ly, or Goog.ly, or Ow.ly, or TinyURL, or...damn, there are a lot, aren't there? I mainly created this script to automatically shorten URL's in user-submitted comments on my website, Airwalk Design. So I figured, why not share it? You are welcome to use the standalone service or otherwise integrate into your website.

What can I do with dizy.be?

Well, the standalone version is useful for tracking social media analytics, or you might like neater looking URL's. A shortened URL would look something like this: http://dizy.be/835057. Click on it to see how long the original URL was! You can integrate this into your website.
