Search - "url-shortener"
Found two awesome domain names (shown as available on namecheap) for the url shortener!
Paid when an error appeared. Contacted the customer service through the live chat.
A bug in their system showed them as available while they're taken.
Always wanted to build a URL shortener. Guess what I'm building right now :D (next to working on a blog article)
Somehow this is making me very happy 😊23
Was literally about to release a test version of the url shortener when I did some more testing and found some security vulnerabilities, let's fix those first tomorrow 😅13
Url shortener seems to be working well enough as for the features without interface yet, still doing testing but it's looking good (few minor non-critical bugs but that's it as far as I can see)
Now the frontend/interface.
Dear namecheap, I honestly love your service and prices but how in the hell can I see an ip address in the dig of a new domain (url shortener) which I never put or saw there and which doesn't even belong to any server I own/operate?!
DNS cache after the last chance of three days ago, nah, don't think so.
Got inspired by @linuxxx to do an simple URL shortener service.
Turned out to be actually useable!
So here it is: https://srt.clan.rip/
Got the domain for free. That's why it is looking so strange.19
