3.ly is a new really, really, really short (3 letters) URL shortener that was suggested by Nancy Jentra in the comments of our article – 20 Really Short URL Shorteners. The service use is typical to any URL shortener, but what makes it different is of course it’s length, only 3 letters, similar to u.nu which was previously listed in our showcase.


  • Create really short URLs – The service is 3 Letters only
  • Add a custom identifier to your shortened URL
  • Bookmarklet available to easily use the service right from your browser

More features will be added soon, such as user accounts to track your shortened URLs. So, if you want to learn more about the new features from 3.ly (Threely), you can follow the updates on Twitter @Threely.
