It will take some time for the IPFS website transaction to resolve on the blockchain after the transaction is signed with the user’s wallet. After the domain records are updated, the decentralized website will resolve in certain browsers and browser extensions.
The following is a list of compatible browsers and extensions for decentralized websites:
Opera for desktop and mobile (supports .crypto)
Brave for desktop and mobile (supports .crypto)
Google Chrome Extension (supports all Unstoppable Top Level Domains)
Firefox Extension (supports all Unstoppable Top Level Domains)
Unstoppable Browser (supports .crypto and .zil)
Once you have configured your browser according to this guide, you will be able to access .crypto Unstoppable domains in two different ways:
`http://domainname.crypto` note http not https
domainname.crypto/ the forward slash is to override your browser's search engine searching for the domain.
The following table provides the configuration options for different browsers in order to view d-websites.

IPFS gateways provide workarounds for applications that do not yet support IPFS natively, which allows those browsers and tools to access IPFS content. See the resource guide on IPFS Gateways for more information.
In order to set up a redirection to a traditional domain, you will need to do a redirection via index.html on your blockchain domain so users are sent to a traditional domain.
On your computer, open a text editing software (for example: Notepad for Windows or TextEdit for Mac) and paste the following code.
<title>HTML Meta Tag</title>
<meta http-equiv = "refresh" content = "1; url = YOUR WEBSITE URL HERE" />
<p>YOUR WEBSITE DESCRIPTION HERE </p>
Replace YOUR WEBSITE HERE with your URL and YOUR WEBSITE DESCRIPTION HERE with a short description of your website and save the file as index.html (do not use any other name).
Open index.html from your hard drive to see if everything is working before proceeding. Right-click the file and select "Open with" followed by your browser of choice.
Go to the My Domains section of our website, click Manage over the domain you wish to redirect, and click the Website tab.
Scroll down to Upload Files to IPFS and click Upload.
Browse for the index.html file located on your computer and Click confirm.
Scroll down further and click Confirm Changes.
