How it work's ?

It works as a url redirector the default domain is set inside the and CNAME File. The custom short url are to be placed in urls.json file which could be generated with our custom JSON Generator. As soon as the JSON file is edited with New url, github Actions does its job little url shortner workflow starts running and a new html file is generated in gh-pages branch with the url redirect.
