Build a Decentralized Website for Your Domain

This page outlines the use case for building a decentralized website for your unstoppable domain.

How does it work?

After purchasing a domain from UD, you can build your IPFS website using a template or custom design. Then, you will attach the IPFS website to your Unstoppable Domain via the IPFS hash -- this makes your website decentralized and unstoppable!

Where is the data stored?

InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a protocol and peer-to-peer network for storing and sharing data in a distributed file system. This protocol is similar to BitTorrent in that IPFS allows users to receive and host content inside the peer-to-peer network.

As opposed to a centrally located server, IPFS is built around a decentralized system of user-operators who hold a portion of the overall data, creating a resilient system of file storage and sharing.

Are there working integrations for this feature?

We have over 35,000 live decentralized websites. You can view all live d-websites on ViewBlock.io. Some examples you can check out include:

How do I get started?

If you are new to IPFS and decentralized websites (d-web), we recommend that you start with the IPFS Overview and Building a Website pages. See the guide on Resolving a D-Website in a Browser to view your d-website after connecting it to your domain.
