The Service : The EBU is the registry of the Top Level Domain .radio and proposes the Service to help the .radio community to share radio content with the world.

The Service proposed on the Site enable to convert a long .radio URL (site or page address) to a shorter version so that shortened URLs are redirected to .radio complex URLs.

This shorter version of the URL is usually cleaner and easier to share or remember

URLs shortened by the Service are not private and should not be treated as such. Third parties could easily guess the short URL that You are using, so You should not use the Service or this Site to link to sensitive or secure data.

Please note that the Service is reserved to the radio community and that only .radio URLs addresses can be shortened with the Service.

To access the Service, You must be a .radio registrant and You must create an account on the Site.

You can keep up to 10 shortened URL active at the same time on the same account. Shortened URLs are automatically deactivated 2 years after their creation. You may deactivate any of Your shortened URL from Your account at any time.

Account and Admin Key : In order to register, You must provide an accurate email address and You will be provided with an admin key. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of Your account and Your admin key for restricting access to Your account, and You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under Your account.
