    Arrow *Free* URL Redirection Services


    Hey all Webmaster types!

    While deciding for my new Hospitality based site, I "googled" a bit and reviewed some of the cool URL redirection sites. I rated them too, and for your ease posted them with the URL (for lazy kidz) and a short description.

    Here they're @ your service Sir/Madam:
    ___________________________________

    DotTK (http://www.dot.tk) *****
    you.tk
    My Choice! Isn't it feels great to have your domain name without any strings. However, the pop-up AD is a downsider.
    ___________________________________

    1Place4All (http://www.atmypage.com) ***
    name.atmypage.com
    This service offers redirection of the form name.atmypage.com, supported by a user-selectable choice of ad options including a pop-up ad, an ad shown on an intermediate screen or a banner ad on the destination page. Note that banner ads shown at the top of your page are eligible to participate in this site's banner exchange scheme.
    ___________________________________

    Arrive (http://www.arrive.com/Free_Web_Names/) ****
    arrive.at, arrive.to, directme.to, surfin.to, tunnel.to, home.gs, mouse.to and over 40 other domain names.
    Free URL redirection service that desperately wants to pretend to be something else (see their FAQ!). Offers a choice of over 50 domain names, as well as a free email address and various other goodies. You can pick up upto 5 free Arrive addresses for your site.
    ___________________________________

    Beam.to (http://www.beam.to/) ***
    beam.to
    Offers free URL forwarding of the form beam.to/sitename. You must place a small (88x31 pixel) button on your page in exchange for using the service.
    ___________________________________

    CJB.net (http://www.cjb.net/) **
    Free URL redirection of the form domain.cjb.net. Popup ads are shown.
    ___________________________________

    Click-on.to (http://www.click-on.to/) ****
    click-on.to/user
    This simple redirection service offers a single choice of domain name. A small advert is shown in a popup window.
    ___________________________________

    DomainRedirect (http://www.domainredirect.com/domredirection.htm) ***
    yourdomain.com
    This service will let you point an existing domain name at any URL you like (even Geocities, Tripod etc.) You can also register a domain name via this site to use for redirection.
    ___________________________________

    ___________________________________

    From.lv (http://www.from.lv/) *
    address.from.lv

    has.it, does.it, knows.it, shows.it, makes.it, owns.it, rules.it, says.it, rocks.it

    Choice of approximately two dozen domain names, including homepad.com, pagehub.com, singlespad.com
    Free URL redirection service that lets you choose the subdomain of the domain name of your choice. For instance, domain.homepad.com. A popup ad window will be displayed as each visitor is redirected. You can pay to remove these ads should you wish to do so.

    .tk sux0r.

    Trust me, I've been using these redirection features for about 4 years now, since I was 12, and .tk is one of the worst.

    Firstly, it pops up an ad, yeah it can be disabled. So ..

    Secondly downtime, I recorded a bout 60% uptime in 2 weeks. Nuh-uh.

    Thirdly, url redirection speed was about 8 seconds. shameful.

    i recommend www.uni.cc and www.unonic.com and www.joynic.com
