Creating own short URL identifier

(February 13, 2006)

We have just added a feature to our short URL redirection project GentleURL that allows the users to create their own identifier instead of the machine generated code.

New fashioned identifier:

Only numbers and alphabetic characters are allowed. The identifier is case insensitive. That means that if "gentlesource" is already taken, no "GentleSource" or "GENTELESOURCE" can be created.

GentleURL is based on our Short URL script.
