Displaying a simple HTML page from input embedded into a URL

I'm looking for a workaround to a problem that currently doesn't have a solution: to put multiple hyperlinks into a single cell of a spreadsheet (Excel or google sheets)

I suspect a 'fudge' workaround is possible as follows:

Spreadsheet to display a single hyperlink that contains a parameter listing a number of other urls
This link points to a special webpage to parse and display these links

eg spreadsheet displays "click to see list of products"
and webpage is "generated" showing the list of products with links

It's a bit of a fudge because the user will need to click a link twice (once on the spreadsheet, and then again on the webpage)

It maybe that a URL shortener service would also be required depending on the maximum permitted URL length

It's for low-volume use, I'm thinking to put such a webpage on my server for private use, so I'm looking for help to create this page.

Perhaps a more general version is to create a page that converts an input parameter into a new webpage. ie embedding some HTML as a parameter to then display this as a webpage.
