Hosting using a pinning service

Pinning services

An easy way to make sure important data is retained is to use a pinning service. These services run lots of IPFS nodes and will pin your data for you! This way, you don't have to run and maintain your own IPFS node. Check out the Persistence page for more information on pinning services. In this tutorial, we're going to use Pinata (opens new window)since it gives new users 1GB of storage for free, and has a very simple interface:

  1. Go to (opens new window)and sign up or log in.

  2. Select Upload and click Browse.

  3. Navigate to your index.html file and click Open.

  4. Click Upload.

  5. You should be able to see your index.html file pinned:

  6. Click your index.html file to open your website through the Pinata gateway.
