@amrith Good if you're trying to broadcast your website with an Eddystone beacon but you don't have an https website.

There seems to be an issue with the service. For example, Product Hunt adds a query parameter to a URL: `ref=producthunt`. And when I try to use the service to create a short link, it outputs whatever is in my address bar at the time + the actual unique part of the short URL. So basically if one navigates from Product Hunt to phys.ly (so that https://phys.ly/?ref=producthunt is in the address bar) and tries to shorten a link to Google, for example, they would get this: https://phys.ly/?ref=producthunt...
