I’ve seen how easy it is to deploy and pin a “single-page” website using IPFS, but the part I am not understanding: what happens when you want to update the content? Do you just 1) unpin the old, and 2) redeploy the page again? Presuming you had some domain service, do you have to update to the new hash ID (CID?)? Is there a better way? Thanks!
Did you check ipns?
Yes, that looks like a promising way to go. I think what could be done is 1) use IPNS to create a “static” CID for your project, and then 2) use DNS or some other same service as an alias to make it easier to find. Does it sound like I’m on the right track? Thank you!
I’m not familiar with setting a DNS for ipfs but I saw a webpage doing it the other day:
It uses CloudFlare.
❯ nslookup fdroid.evanito.com Server: 126.96.36.199 Address: 188.8.131.52#53 Non-authoritative answer: fdroid.evanito.com canonical name = cloudflare-ipfs.com.

There’s seem to be other ways to do DNS. This repo mentions dnslink:
Oh yeah, that was the one I was going to do… dnslink. Thanks for the link, and let you know how it goes.
