What shortened URLs are available through

I would like to propose a feature request to assign a shorter urls and redirect them to the respective Stackexchange site.


The shorter url may be .se or or something else, if anyone has a good idea with that.

Do let me know, what you feel/your ideas about this?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Perhaps this will be helpful -. Is short enough? ;) – Lix Oct 30 '12 at 18:47
The shortened URLs question is certainly helpful, but this is really a duplicate of Can Stack Overflow, Inc. purchase the .se top-level domain? Also related: is too long; can we have something shorter? – Pops Oct 30 '12 at 19:02

This has already been done, but not though the .se domain as you suggested. The top-level .se domain is the country code of Sweden, and many of the URLs you suggest are no longer available. We use the domain paths as a shortener.

I won't duplicate that list here. Better to get it from the source:
