Actually, there’s many  which offers you to shorten your web address, but you need to choose the perfect one which deals with better features and function and up time servers too. For your obligation I researched whole web, and seek-ed best one available.

5. Ow Ly  Shortening  (

This e-tool remains at last for me, because of some draw back of this system. Ow Ly can shorten URL, but one need to pass with security check of captcha which is very irritating for me and I think for you its the same. It even requires you to compulsorily register with site and then Log in harassment. So I don’t recommend to go with this slow service.


Disadvantages :

  • Security pass of captcha
  • Register and Login needed
  • New in field
  • All these makes this tool ineffective

As mentioned earlier also, there are many online sites which provides same service of shortening  but there are many reasons for which you need to opt for best. If you go with any insecure site (running bad scripts) then you might face future problems.
