SM.TV is now live and ready to serve you.

We are proud to announce that SM.TV short URL service is now live. And yes, this is a short URL service just like other short services that you see everyday.

We thought that another website offering free service is always a good thing, to create a friendly competition so the business that provides these kind of service will stay free for all Internet users. A friendly competition will help move the technology to the next level so they can provide us a better service and better product.

We are using an open source script coded by R Guerin of , here's a sneak peek of some useful features:
  • Squeeze that long URL to a "really" short URL e.g. using to redirect to a long URL address where no one can remember. This is the reason we use SM.TV domain name for this specific purpose.
  • Checks submitted and accepted URLs against SURBL "Lists of website that appeared in unsolicited messages" (2009, SURBL) and URIBL "Lists domains taht appear in spam, NOT where they were sent" (2009, URIBL) to prevent abuse by the Bad People of the Internet.
  • It is a FREE software, licensed under the GNU GPL.
Please visit the website SM.TV to test drive our Short URL service and let us know what you think.
