Static websites play a big part in the emerging decentralized/distributed (let’s use dWeb from now on), due to the nature of how these sites are hosted.
Static sites alone were already a great way to host websites prone to attack by authoritarian regimes, where dynamic servers just expose too many vulnerabilities and are easier to take down with DDoS. Recent increased adoption of DNS over HTTPs (DoH) or the preferred DNS over HTTPS (DoT) helped a bit with ISPs/government restrictions blocking requests, but aren’t able to ensure connectivity for simple end users, without running VPNs, which can be questionable themselves.
Years ago, I had requests from users to support deploying to Interplanetary Filesystem (IPFS) sites. I was a bit more knowledgable on crypto stuff back then, but my knowledge has definitely slipped.
IPFS hasn’t achieved mainstream, easy access yet, nor have any of the emerging technologies, but that’s to be expected. We don’t see big technological changes adopted overnight, especially when there’s so much commercial interest not to let it happen.
My ideologies align with accessible, decentralised/distributed systems, so a good time to learn more about it and ensure my projects help users build sites and adopt this disruptive technology!
