Raddy Website Design & Development Tutorials

Technical Specifications

This website? Think Frankenstein’s monster of code, but way friendlier. At its core is the mighty WordPress, the open-source hero that keeps countless websites alive. A ~€8 Hetzner VPS keeps all of my projects running smoothly. The site features a custom PHP theme, with modern block-based elements adding some flair.
