Turn any link into a suspicious looking one
e.g. i.imgur.com/OpYDgt3.gif becomes 666.verylegit.link/warez737speedupurpc.gif.pdf.dmg
Like a URL shortener, but worse
Who needs a shorter link? Not you, my friend. I mean, when you send someone a link, they just click it anyway, so you might as well send 'em a real clanger. This is truly crucial browsing.
Is it safe?
Uhhh well listen I mean it's probably about as safe as a regular URL shortener, but I wouldn't use it for something you're not okay with being randomly redirected to Tinder for Dogs.
Wait so how do I know the link doesn't actually go somewhere dodgy?
You're just gonna have to trust whoever sends it to you.
I want to use this service for my own project
Sure thing. Have a browse of the "documentation" on GitHub.
How does it work?
Due to rapid advancement in dark ritual technology, the programming community has streamlined the development and deployment of unspeakable eldritch horrors. Using robust open-source libraries like a sack of live geese, websites like this one can be developed with far more efficient sacrificial rituals than ever before. We're still stuck on the version with really inefficient sacrifical rituals though, due to comp͆aͭatib̊i̼͕l̈̿i̮̜t̚y̅ ͊i͋s̾s̢͈͠u̶e̛̊s̼̃.
You have to love that they’ve got an API for this…
Who would think that win2003.verylegit.link/GNdHusvKjuK~r~YH,arT-server1337+333resumemobiads=shockwave-flash_.min.js.sh.docm would actually resolve to boffosocko.com?!
You can use emoji (and other graphical unicode characters) in URLs. And wow is it great. But no one seems to do it. Why? Perhaps emoji are too exotic for normie web platforms to handle? Or maybe they are avoided for fear of angering the SEO gods?
Aaron Parecki is right, this is pretty awesome… If only this were doable on TLDs…
I can see Aaron Parecki or Marty McGuire using the timecode bits along with their audio related pages with media fragments.
Typically in my experience, a freestanding “m” subdomain is often used to host and indicate the mobile version of a website. I’ve just noticed that the URL design of Signal v. Noise instead uses their
https://m.signalvnoise.com subdomain to presumably indicate “Medium”, the social silo that hosts their content.
Itty bitty sites are contained entirely within their own link. (Including this one!) This means they’re…
💼 Portable – you don’t need a server to host them
👁 Private – nothing is sent to–or stored on–this server
🎁 Easy to share as a link or QR code
Itty bitty sites can hold about as much as a printed page, and there is a lot you can do with that:
✒️ Compose poetry
🛠 Create an app
🐦 Bypass a
140 280 char limit
🎨 Express yourself in ascii
Advanced HTML editing & sharing

This is an curious and interesting way to build a website… but talk about a URL problem…
