Our service is based on scripts entirely being developed by ourselves.
These scripts gets extended and improved all the time. During development
speed, security, and user-friendliness were classified as the most
important details. As an example when you log into the user interface
your password is not stored inside HTML pages and it is also not transmitted
in an unencrypted way. Quite a lot of other redirection services still
do that, believe it or not. Should there be any bigger flaws in our
code - contrary to our expectations - we will be able to fix them
immediately. Many other redirection services are using third-party
scripts - that means if new bugs appear they will most likely not
be able to fix them.
High speed, reliability, and security
Besides the major aim on speed and security we stressed on high reliability
of our service. We are using a dedicated high-performance system for
this service that is connected to a fast backbone. That's how we can
guarantee high performance and high accessibleness.
