pendek.in: An Indonesian URL Shortener

Migration #4

Pendek.in is an Indonesian URL shortener. It has been developed since two years ago by a young web developer, Sanny Gaddafi. The name ‘pendek.in’ means ‘to shorten’.

I believe you all are already familiar with other famous URL shorteners, such as tinyURL, bitly, tiny.cc, Ow.ly, goo.gl. Using ‘pendek.in’ may provide you an alternative of URL shorteners. As it arose from Indonesian context, I would be happy to support it. For those who are not in that position, using the shortener may give you various selections. It also would give you a different experience. 

Similar to other shorteners, ‘pendek.in’ shortens long URL so it can be copied to websites, forums or social network sites. You just need to copy the long URLs and paste in the ‘masukkan URL’ box. Then click ‘pendek.in’. It is illustrated below.

For Example:

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=jakarta&sll=-6.085936,107.080994&sspn=1.106082,2.471924&ie=UTF8&ll=-6.105053,106.907959&spn=0.553027,1.235962&z=10&iwloc=addr 

It can be shortened into: 

http://pendek.in/Qa 

(source: pendek.in). 

This site also provides a drag and drop toolbar for you. Simply drag and drop the toolbar and have all long URLs in the toolbar to be shortened. All shortened URLs can still be accessed anytime. You can access this in the website provided below.

It can be quite handy to be used in (microblogging) sites that do not allow long characters, like Twitter. However, one may be curious to get spams with some unknown short URL names as I assume that this shortener is not widely around yet. Please CMIIW🙂 But,don’t you worry, keep using it. Support the developer.

To have a try, please visit pendek.in. Here is a list of other URL shortener sites.

I hope this can give benefits for you all. Have a nice day!🙂
