What do you mean by, "because of concurrency"?

I know it is insecure, but I would store everything in a txt file where
each line is a link.

Then you can reach your link with<linenumber>

If you don't want your id to be consecutive, a tsv file would do the
trick with a hash then the link.

Is there a problem with this approach ?
