Decentralized domain services DNS are web services that are provided by a network of distributed nodes rather than a central server. This means that there is no single point of failure, and the service is more resilient to attacks. Common decentralized hosting services include:
- IPFS: A peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol designed to make the web faster, safer, and more open.
- Dat: A decentralized data protocol that enables applications to load data faster and more securely.
- Filecoin: A decentralized storage network that runs on the IPFS protocol.
- Blockstack: A decentralized computing platform that enables developers to build apps that run on a blockchain.
- ENS: A decentralized domain name system that allows you to register and resolve human-readable names on the Ethereum blockchain.
There are many more decentralized web services out there, and new ones are being created all the time. If you're interested in learning more about them, we recommend checking out the Decentralized Web Primer from the Internet Archive or check out Hashtag.Org, as we offer a full suite of decentralized services.
