Pinata.cloud
IPFS desktop application
Go to Pinata.cloud and register an account
Unzip the file and modify the code.
Upload your html Folder, make sure it includes index.html
Upload your html folder

Make sure you have index.html in your folder

2. save the above IPFS hash (CID) in the domain name.

Copy the CID of this folder
Pinata.cloud
IPFS desktop application

Save (ipfs:// + CID) to the IPFS content in the domain.

FAQ

Why does my page not display?

Make sure your folder containing index.html is uploaded to IPFS, sometimes you need to wait a few minutes for the upload to complete.
And copy the CID of the folder, not the index.html cid.
We recommend using Pinata.cloud for uploads, which does not require you to install the IPFS desktop application.
You can also use this gateway to check if your html upload is complete, replace your IPFS CID and open it in your browser.

How do I update my website?

You need to modify the html file locally and re-upload a new folder.
Then copy the new folder CID and save it to the domain.
After saving, it usually takes more than 10 minutes + to update because of caching.
