DecentURL

Making ugly URLs decent

DecentURL was a URL “decent-ification” service inspired by a reddit comment. It turned unreadable URLs like youtube.com/watch?v=pQHX-SjgQvQ into nice ones like youtube.decenturl.com/medieval-help-desk. I ran it from 2007 till 2020:

Sorry! But the URLs weren’t being hit much anymore, and the ones that were were mostly 404’s anyway. I figure 12+ years was a good run.
