url shortener

Secure and reliable short links. Speed via

Rel.ink was intended as a fun and free side project that grew to millions of users and millions of links shortened. I'm deeply saddened by the fact that I have to suspend the service because somebody used it to do harm to others.

I will be making the source code available to everybody who wants to host the service on their own.
