Public Projects

Passion projects and experiments

serv.from.zone

serv.from.zone is a project that leverages DNS records to remove the need for dedicated web servers. With serv.from.zone, you can use Emmet to create a website from the comfort of your domain registrar's DNS admin page!

Features:
  • Create a website directly from a domain registrar's DNS admin page
  • No need to spin up a new server, install/setup/maintain web server software, have a public IP, or even open a terminal
  • Serve infinite websites for free!
Most effective use cases:
  • Quick, static websites
  • Fancy, personalized domain parking, especially for one-off domains you bought but haven't used
  • Easily serving subdomains. For example, monitors.mradford.com (check out the Emmet by running dig TXT +short serv.monitors.mradford.com

You might even say it's more "serverless" than current serverless infrastructure!

YEAHBOI 3D

Inspired by the original, I made a 3D version to experiment with three.js.

SoundSerum Android App

I found SoundSerum, a cool royalty-free techno music website, and seeing that its Android app was using PhoneGap, took it upon myself to create a native music streaming app for the website.
