ncane - the small URL generator

ncane is a Zulu word meaning "small", and that's what we're doing here: saving you space.

LIVE SITE LAUNCHED ON 14 FEBRUARY 2008 (after two years of beta testing).

WHAT'S NEW ON NCANE.COM
  • ncane.com now incorporates an intermediate page for URLs of executable files (.exe only) to warn users of potentially dangerous files. Users are given the option to download the file should they feel it is safe.

  • ncane.com now incorporates an intermediate page, displaying Google Ads, to support the cost of traffic to this site. Owing to the terms and conditions of Google AdSense, users will be required to manually click the link should they wish to follow it. Premium subscribers will not see this intermediate page. (This intermediate page only affects links with 25 or more hits, and does not include images).

  • ncane.com periodically (and on request) expires URLs that are in violation of the terms of use. These do not include stale URLs (older than six months with zero hit count), which are deleted from the database periodically as well.

  • ncane.com is growing in leaps and bounds since its inception on 3 February 2006 as a way to make long and / or difficult to remember URLs much shorter (and permanent).

  • The ncane.com family now includes the following URLs: ncane.com, ncane.co.za, ncane.net, kleinurl.com, kleinurl.co.za, kleinurl.net, minurl.co.za, minurl.net and adres.co.za.

  • ncane.com generates short random alphanumeric URLs using a proprietary algorithm, or you can choose your own (Premium service only).

  • ncane.com checks for addresses that have already been added to the database and displays the already-created URL.

  • ncane.com lets you email your link to a friend, including a brief description. For security reasons, and to prevent spam, you cannot email the same link to the same email address more than once.

  • ncane.com remembers your name and email address, so that you don't have to type it in every time you want to send a link by email. This can also be turned off.

  • ncane.com allows URL creation for adult-oriented sites, and provides a warning page before displaying the target URL (Premium service only). The free service is checked periodically for adult sites and tagged accordingly.

  • ncane.com reserves the right to expire any sites deemed inappropriate, and where applicable in the case of illegal sites, will report the creator of the link to their Service Provider.

  • Links with a 0 hit-count and created more than six months in the past will be recycled.

  • ncane.com shows a list of the ten most clicked links.

Active URLs: 24,368. Disabled URLs: 5,115.
