An exception to this are websites which access the content inside
Freenet and provide it to the user. There are currently two examples of
this:

- bluishcoder.co.nz, a website backed by Freenet:
  https://bluishcoder.co.nz/2015/09/14/using-freenet-for-static-websites.html
- a generic in-proxy, allowing access to some sites in Freenet:
  http://d6.gnutella2.info/freenet/

The first example means that even if your domain name should be
unavailable for any reason, people can keep accessing your website over
Freenet. For example when you run Freenet, the bluishcoder-site is also
available via the link

http://127.0.0.1:/USK@1ORdIvjL2H1bZblJcP8hu2LjjKtVB-rVzp8mLty~5N4,8hL85otZBbq0geDsSKkBK4sKESL2SrNVecFZz9NxGVQ,AQACAAE/bluishcoder/-28/

I would say that Freenet is not suited to your use case. Let me
provide you with some basic understanding of how Freenet works.

Websites (freesites) on Freenet can only be accessed by those using
Freenet themselves, and are not accessible from the "normal" internet
without installing additional software. As such, domain names are
irrelevant on Freenet. We address content by "key", which is a
cryptographically derived value, similar to the way Bitcoin uses
"addresses" to identify wallets.

Content is spread in small encrypted pieces over the computers of all
of Freenet's users. One can upload content into Freenet, where it
stays available for as long as it stays popular, even when the
uploader disconnects from the network.

All uploaded content is signed such that it cannot be tampered with:
as such, all data in Freenet is static (although we have mechanisms
for updating data). That is safe, but it also means that dynamic
websites are not possible on Freenet, unless additional plugins or
external programs are used to provide any such functionality.

[freenet-support] regarding publishing a website

2016-05-31 Thread Austin Bunton
I'd like to migrate the structure and content of my current business
website over to the Freenet.  What are the steps of this process, would I
have a different web address if I want to maintain the same domain name,
and what is the cost of maintaining a site with 1,000 webpages and more
than 10GB of content?  I noticed that the homepage of the Freenet mentions
not needing servers, but where is the data stored?  On my own computer?  I
want to ensure that my site will stay up, and third parties won't mess up
my hard work (like hosts have in the past, changing the interface and
programming associated with my sites (more like illogically destroying the
interface's reliability and with no notice to the end users), thus making
maintaining my sites impossible).
Thanks for your time and help, and hat's off to you for your Freenet
milestones.
