Th8.us logo : URL trimming made simple!

Th8.us was a URL shortener that operated from 2008-07-10 to 2011-05-17. It remains online and approximately 25 million shortlinks created during this time continue to redirect, although most of them are spam or broken links.

You can see a preview for where a Th8.us shortlink redirects by prefixing it with "p.", i.e. p.q8ees.th8.us The preview page will also tell you the date and time the shortlink was created (except for some shortlinks from 2008 which only have the date available), the different in length between the long URL and shortlink, the internal reference number, and if the URL was added by the Tweet This WordPress plugin and which version of the plugin was in use (example).
