Transfer Website

Developed a SaaS that allows people to transfer a website from one server to another, change domain names, and make backups without routing work.

Clients can fill in SFTP credentials that are being stored encrypted, and the system will move all files; they can also export and import the database on any web hosting provider, tested with 100GB database on a cheap hosting with very low limits, and replace all needed configuration parameters like database credentials, paths, and domain names, resulting in fully automated, fast, and secure websites migrations. The system handles WordPress serializations, Magento caching, and other CMS-related cases automatically.

Custom Monitoring System

A personal project used for a web hosting company.

I developed custom servers monitoring based on Laravel, Bootstrap, and Google Charts. The system tracked many critical server parameters such as HTTP and FTP and other network traffic, CPU, RAM, disk usage, SMTP, POP, and IMAP services, DNS, Nginx connections, and MySQL load. In addition, I implemented SMS Clickatell and e-mail notifications based on configurable thresholds and visualization in graphs with primitive anomaly detection.

De of Het Expert

A lightweight website that allows people to check the article of Dutch words quickly. It uses background parsers to collect words from tens of different sources and inserts or updates the words found in the database.
