To get such domain, one should follow the specific procedures of the respective TLD authority.

Alternatives:
- The UI mockup uses domain "RS.ly" which is modeled after "bit.ly" but the abbreviation doesn't make much sense.
Also, I don't think it's a good idea to deal with Lybia
- We could get a domain such as prj.rs (stands for "researchspace project"); rs is the Republic of Serbia TLD.
Could also use subdomains per project, eg rembrndt.prj.rs, bm.prj.rs, etc.
- If we select goo.gl:
-- is it ok if our URLs are random, i.e goo.gl/XXXX
-- maybe we could get and "reserve" a prefix, so our short URLs are goo.gl/rsXXXXXX or goo.gl/rs/XXXXXX

(!) TODO Dominic: Decide about domain

h2. Design
TODO: trial and select some software, describe how we'd deploy it
{jira:RS-954}
TODO Ceco:
- research and trial some open source software (java!)
- research goo.gl and see how RS could use it (what is the API?).
Is it possible to "reserve" a prefix?
- describe how we'd deploy the sofware, or use goo.gl

h1. Storing and Processing

TODO:
TODO Vlado:
- Need two properties for full and shortened URL.
- display the full URL in tooltip
