What is IPFSGate.com
  • IPFSGate.com is an advanced public IPFS gateway, IPFS link storage and IPFS network web hosting provider. You can use the gateway to access the IPFS content directly through your web browser without installation of any other software or plugins. You are allowed to browse any IPFS content via our default gateway or you can select from many 3rd party gateways. Those of you who use Tor Browser for a better anonymity can take advantage our Onion Gateway:
  • What is IPFS network and DWeb
  • The InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a protocol and peer-to-peer network for storing and sharing data (files, images, videos, websites) in a distributed file system. IPFS uses content-addressing to uniquely identify each file in a global namespace connecting all computing devices. IPFS allows users to not only receive but even host content. As opposed to a centrally located servers, IPFS is built around a decentralized and distributed system (DWeb) of user-operators who hold a portion of the overall data, creating a resilient system of file storage and sharing. Any user in the network can serve a file by its content address, and other peers in the network can find and request that content from any node who has it using a distributed hash table (DHT).
  • IPFS = content decentralization
  • Today's web is centralized, which means that your web browser (HTTP protocol respectively) downloads files from one computer (server) at a time instead of getting pieces from multiple computers simultaneously. IPFS efficiently solves this problem by content distribution and decentralization, so once the content is requested by your computer, it can be easily downloaded from any source (node) which share it at that time.
  • IPFS = content is censorship-resistant
  • IPFS brings great opportunity to make hosted data (files, images, videos, websites etc.) censorship-resistant. HTTP servers can be blocked or censored by authorities, may fails or can be hacked. In IPFS this is not easily possible because all data can be decentralized over many nodes around the world and each node can serve the requested content. IPFS is also DOS/dDOS attacks-resistant.
  • Simple access via nodes, Brave browser, or via gateways
  • There are three ways how to access data in IPFS network. By instalation of your own IPFS node you get a full access to the network and you can download or upload any content. You can also download Brave browser and install it to your computer which allows you to browse any content with no need of own IPFS node. A third and the simplest way is to use any IPFS gateway which allows you to browse IPFS content over HTTP protocol from any web browser.
  • If you wish to add data or host your website in IPFS network, you can use our IPFS Hosting Services.
  • IPFS over Tor = Great anonymity
  • IPFS network is not an anonymization network. All content can be traceable by IP address of the node who share that content. There are some approaches how to run IPFS node behind Tor network, but at this time there is no simple way how to easily do it. But from the content-visitor point of view the situation is much more better. Most of IPFS gateways are accessible via Tor Browser and Ipfsgate.com offers mirror gateway fully located behind Tor (see: Onion Gateway). If you need an excellent anonymity for visiting some content, using of Onion Gateway should be the best choice for you.

    IPFS pinning services
  • An IPFS pinning service is an IPFS node or collection of IPFS nodes dedicated to pinning other people's content on IPFS.
  • If you wish to pin ('upload to IPFS network') single files (documents, images, videos etc.) in big data volumes, you can use IPFS pinning services like pinata.cloud, eternum.io or infura.io.
  • IPFS web hosting services
  • An IPFS web hosting service is a pinnig service aimed at a pinning and serve of whole websites. Because of all data shared accross the IPFS network are meant to be public, natively can not be used any backend code and the database. Only frontend code (HTML, CSS, JavaScript + its frameworks (e.g. JQuery, AngularJS, etc.) are possible. But it does not mean that it is not possible to build up in IPFS network sofisticated website with server code and the database. It can be done very easily but the backend part of code (e.g. PHP and the database) needs to be serve on another hosting server outside the IPFS network. This is the limitation of IPFS.
  • Ipfsgate.com offers comprehensive approach to host your website in IPFS network. You can select from many MDBootstraped IPFS Web Templates (SPA) or you can use any yours. We can also pin that websites for you.
