We’ve been working hard over the past weeks preparing and designing a brand new system for what will be the world’s premier URL-shortener tool. However we haven’t failed to recognise that whilst we’re busy in the workshops crafting a new platform we have loyal users still using the existing system; so we’ve been working hard and have implemented some great new features (mostly behind the scenes) to speed up redirections and the site in general:
- A dedicated site server with caching to ensure the site can be as fast as it possibly can be!
- Database server tuning to speed up redirections and to prepare URL’s for the move to our new server of choice, Mongo .
- Improved spam filtering, at the moment many users are having to enter CAPTCHA’s on every submission, this however will be removed as soon as we get the filter just right!
If you have any other site feedback don’t hesitate to leave us a comment or click here to leave some on our uservoice page and get your idea voted up by other users!
