lolz.ws and lulz.ws Are Shutting Down on August 9

I have decided to shut down my URL shortening sites, lolz.ws and lulz.ws, on August 9.

Here are some of the reasons why I have come to this decision:

  • The lack of traffic on these sites.
  • Most URLs were created by spammers.
  • lolz.ws was in the jwSpamSpy spam list for which reasons I do not know, causing it to be blocked by some web filters.
    • No email has ever been sent from this domain since the day I registered it.
    • It has since been taken out of the spam list as I requested but some filters still block the domain.
  • lolz.ws was once blocked for pornography.
  • The fact that there are many other URL shortening sites out there.

Plans on Two New URL Shortening Sites

Recently I bought the domains, lolz.ws and lulz.ws. What am I going to do with them is make them URL Shortening sites.

Imagine linking to something funny on Twitter, Facebook, or to a friend using lolz.ws:
http://lolz.ws/alias

Imagine linking to something you are doing the lulz for using lulz.ws:
http://lulz.ws/alias

Of course it will be possible to use both URLs for just about anything. It will be a while before I get these sites up.
