It’s been a long 6 years but we’re finally able to celebrate a small victory — acquiring www.ack.com! Each May we were greeted with disappointment as the web address was always renewed, but things changed this year as we finally got a hold of what we now consider one of our most prized possessions, ACK.com.
It’s a small feat for what we consider a large victory, so what does that mean for you? We are now able to provide our customers 72% more time to do other things than typing a web address (the address is 72% shorter). ACK.com actually makes our current short link , http://yakr.us, not all that interesting any longer, but we will still use it as it helps identify which is a regular link as opposed to a shortened link.
As we begin our migration to the new URL you probably won’t notice many changes, other than seeing a shorter resolving web address in your browser window. You can already access our site via the new address at http://ack.com?utm_source=ackblog&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=blog as we have a temporary redirection taking place. For those that want to free up about 2 seconds of your life…assuming you type 60 words per minute, give it a spin.
