Tinyurl will be Bigger BIGger and BIGGER ?

Posted By: KP On April 29, 2009 Under Internet Categories

Tinyurl is a url shorten service and Free to use. It shortens long url into short like tinyurl.com/a1sd34.But what’s the future of the service? My mad thinking made me to think so.

Tinyurl converts your long url into tinyurl.com followed by an unique string.The string might be 5 or 6 chars long containing numbers and characters.

So what I thought is will Tinyurl be bigger and bigger years by years? If today I am getting 6 characters at end of tinyurl.com/ while shorting .

Taking 26 alphabets and 10 letters in counting we can get maximum

36*36*36*36*36 combinations for 5 characters long string.That is there will be 60466176 combination from 36 alphabets and numbers.

Right now tinyurl has got world alexa traffic rank of 453. That means millions of people using this service. So many shorten url getting generated everyday.

Moreover , many scripts using tinyurl to generate short url.Incresing tinyurl use day by day will also increase the length of url.

Taking maximum 6 possible combination from all alphabets and letters we get 2176782336 (36*36*36*36*36*36) combinations.

So seems that for one/two years this won’t increse by one letter.But its true that increase one letter we get 36 times more possible combinations than old !

So the Tinyurl seems to be tiny for years and years D-: .Moreover some people get personalised link like tinyurl.com/kunalpradhan
.So they don’t wasted a small combination (-;

Long live TinyUrl D-:
