Google Apps Short Links

Posted on 1:13 AM by Support @ Whaddya.com

If you are using Google Apps for your email, just like @king.net email address. You can activate additional Google App Engine for your own Short Links e.g. digg.com, bit.ly, tinyurl.com, shorturl.com and other short URL services. Here's a simple guide on how to active your own Google Apps Short Links service.

  • Login to your Google Apps, for example http://mail.google.com/a/king.net/. 
  • Click the Manage this domain
  • In your Dashboard Service settings, click Add more services
  • In Other Services, click the Add it now
  • Back to the Dashboard, you will see if your URL service is Active.
Now configure your domain name DNS record. I have my domain name with NeedName.com, so login to my control panel for KING.NET. In Control Panel, DNS Record, add CNAME record just like this one: url --> CNAME --> ghs.google.com where url is my host for http://url.king.net short links

Here's a sample website:

And these are the sample short links:
http://url.king.net/vpn  redirect to  http://www.king.net/2009/03/howto-setup-vpn-connection-using.html
http://url.king.net/wardrive  redirect to http://www.king.net/2008/08/whaddya-know-wardrivecom-wardriving.html

Now I have to stop using tinyurl.com, shorturl.com and other short links services. I enjoy my own short links at http://url.king.net and promote my own service.
