Gateway Access Controls

4EVERLAND's dedicated gateway provides fast and reliable access to IPFS content, and it also offers gateway control options to avoid unreasonable external use of the exposed gateways. These settings allow you to control the use of your dedicated gateway and ensure that it is used in a way that meets your specific needs and requirements.

With gateway control options, you can set limits on the number of requests that can be made to your dedicated gateway, as well as the types of requests that are allowed. This can help to prevent unauthorized access and ensure that your dedicated gateway is used in a way that is consistent with your business rules and policies.

Open or Restricted?

The Open Gateway will be made available to any content on IPFS, even if it is not pinned to your account. This means that anyone with the link can access the content provided by the gateway.

Restricted gateways will only provide access to content that is pinned to your account.

Restricted Gateway

After creating the dedicated gateway, visit the 'edit' page and select 'Settings'.

When enabled, the dedicated gateway will restrict access to external content as much as possible and only provide content that is pinned to your account. If you wish to add further security restrictions, please visit and add Allowlists.


Enabling origins allowlists will allow only whitelisted sites to refer to the gateway for content on the IPFS network.

Also, if you do not add any origins parameters, the gateway will only be accessible through the address bar.
