Easiest way to create a web document viewer

Oftentimes, we want to make a simple web page to display some documents. How to make a nice web page? How to put a document viewer in the web page? where to host the web page? Where to host the documents? How to get a short URL? 

Well, let's make things easy. You just want a web page, right?
  • Send your documents (e.g., PDF) to p@mailp.in like this
  • Then you'll get a short URL for the page with your documents.
Currently, we support PDF, Powerpoint, Word, and most source code files. It's not perfect, but it's enough ... because what we want is just a simple web page ...
