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.
