lolcorps.com

Lolcorps.com is a entertainment website that display funny images, animations with memos. Actually i never planned for this website. This time i was working in a telecommunication company in Sri Lanka, here i used to write scripts for servers. so i was doing some research on servers and testing some of my automated scripts, eventually i ran that script on one of the popular entertainment website and download all their resources from their server with in 3 hours. I downloaded 18000 image assets from that entertainment website in 3hours, that’s  a huge amount of resources. Now i thought of putting this resource in a useful way.

So now i wrote a simple algorithm to sort this images in to categories and get the image name, strip all the unwanted characters and use it as a database field. Now i have the resources and database ready, i then downloaded a HTML theme from themeforest.com and developed a website  using codeigniter with in a month and put it live. It is still live at the time of writing this article. Please visit : http://www.lolcorps.com/home/most_recent

MD5hacking.com

This is my 7th website i ever created back in 2014. Its a simple website, help developers to decrypt and encrypt MD5 hashes. Yes we all know, there is no way you can decrypt md5 hashes, because the algorithm is designed in a way that the original values are lost during the process of encrypting a md5 hash.

I created a huge database by converting all the text from oxford dictionary to md5 hashes and saving it in a database, i wrote an simple algorithm to do this task and  unlike all the other websites i developed, i didn’t spent much time on this website. i was able to complete this project with in a week and put it live.

But this time i had good adsense account, i added it to the website and run it for about a year, but was unable to cover even the domain and hosting expenses with the amount i was getting from adsense. so i decided to drop the website.

 

Lankahomes.lk – adspace.lk

adspace.lk is a online website, that helps uses to advertise their properties online for free. I started creating this project after dropping isaithuli.com, but unlike isaithuli.com now i learned a lot about web development technologies and now i am in my final year of my college, while developing this project. i had lot of college work to do in my final year, therefore i know i cant spend more time on this project, so i was looking for the easiest way to do it.

I downloaded a HTML theme form Themeforest.com and modified it according to my requirements, then using my knowledge on PHP and MYSQL database i was able to complete this project put it live within 3months. at that moment adspace.lk looked like this.

Although i completed the site successfully and running it properly, i was not happy about  the amount of customer and visitors to the site, so i thought something need to change and i decided to redevelop the website with new interface theme and latest technologies.

Now i have finished my college and i had lot of free time and i started working as a PHP developer in one of the big web development companies in Sri Lanka. But i was not paid enough to fulfill my basic needs with the salary i was getting as a fresher. So i started doing project for other people as a freelancer, this gave me a wast knowledge on Codeigniter ( A beautiful and easy learning PHP framework). With this knowledge on technologies i started redeveloping the website, as usual i download the HTML theme from themeforest.com and started modifying it to my expatiation and using my knowledge on Codeigniter i created a fully working product, where users can login and post their properties by themselves and using the admin panel i will decide weather to display the properties or not. This project took almost around 6 months to complete. Now the site looks much better than adspace.lk, ah i forget to tell, i changed the name and re-branded the site as lankahomes.lk. Now the site looks like this

with this design and function, I made lot of promotions on facebook and google ad-words. But i was still not happy about the number of users.

My first website : Isaithuli.com

This is a the first website i ever created back in 2013. I started this  project in my school days, because i had a strong interest in Tamil music, those days i also used work part-time in a communication shop in Mount Lavinia, Sri Lanka. There i used to download huge amount of Tamil music from online resources for my customers. Gradually i started collecting playlist and after about an year i had collection of 60 GB of playlist. with this collection i thought of making my own MP3 website, so after thinking and searching for domain names with some of my friends for days, i found this name called ISAITHULI.COM  (Means music drop in Tamil), I immediately bought the domain name and started the project.

Then on those days, i didn`t had any knowledge on web development, but with the support of my friend, his name is  JERI, i learned dream viewer (an old web development IDE ) and started developing the site. You can see the screen shot of the site i developed, below.

This site is entirely made of HTML and CSS, although i send more than 3 months to develop this site, i found it really difficult to update the site manually.  So i decided to move on and look for something that can automate the process and reduce my work and time i spend on this site. Then i found this tool called Joomla a web development framework, i learned Joomla and redeveloped the site again, but it took more than 6 months. Now the site is better than before and most important thing is that i can automate most of the process like adding new album.

Now i have the website running smoothly and i was happy, but i couldn’t make any money out of it, i tried google Adsense but they rejected the application due to copyright issues.
