How to create short, masking url for single .html file in Dropbox?

(Sorry, I'm Internet-challenged:) I keep a small website (essentially it's one html file) in my Dropbox folder as a minimalist way to share my various weird projects with friends. I like everything about this solution except the fact, that website's address is this ugly dl.dropbox.com/​u/​yadayayda​ydyadyada/​something/​somethingelse.html Is there a way to mask this address from showing up in browser and replace it with something more elegant and free? Or is this some next level stuff?

Can you help us find an available domain name?

Some friends and I are creating a small creative consulting group. Our skills are pretty diverse- environmental, web development, musical transcription/composition. We are trying to come up with an easy to remember name that is vague enough to cover all of what we do (with available .com URL) and drawing blanks. Any suggestions of names? [more inside]
