IPFS and IC Gateways

Overview

In general, when it comes to IPFS or Internet Computer hosted sites, apps, or files, the actual IPFS content hash address or canister URL where the content is stored is not natively resolved by most browsers or served over HTTPTo solve this, several "gateway" services exist that allow you to access those addresses over HTTP on your browser. 4EVERLAND is one provider for these gateways, and has its own IPFS gateway and Internet Computer gateway.In the case of IPFS, 4EVERLAND provides a faster and more performant In the case of IPFS, 4EVERLAND provides a faster and more performant way of accessing content over IPFS on the browser than the native solution. In the case of the Internet Computer, it is an open source alternative to the DFINITY Foundation's main Internet Computer gateway, that anyone can leverage
In addition, you can easily download files from the 4EVERLAND IPFS gateway by entering the IPFS HASH (CID).

IPFS Gateway

Our IPFS gateway lives under the ipfs.4everland.io URL. It provides an easy way to resolve IPFS hashes over HTTP under the following format: hash.ipfs.4everland.io. Which, when filled, would look like this: https://bafybeiboeabjmjeipy2jrharbm4luab3h3h3p73y4k4mvtqgqc4gtonbai.ipfs.4everland.io/ Any IPFS hash can be resolved using the 4EVERLAND IPFS gateway, whether it is hosted through 4EVERLAND or not. This gateway fetches the information on IPFS, meaning it will always display the exact content of the file on IPFS.

4EVERLAND Edge Nodes

4EVERLAND's IPFS gateway has more than 200 global edge nodes that can globally accelerate, and when the user accesses the file path through 4EVERLAND's Edge node it will select the fastest node closest to the user. When you host a new site, we can ensure its performance will be the best and fastest.With over 200 globally accelerated edge nodes on 4EVERLAND's primary IPFS gateway, accessing the file path through 4EVERLAND's Edge nodes will pick the nearest and fastest node to the user. When you host a new site, we can ensure that it is accessed with the best and fastest performance.
  • Global Acceleration
  • Automatic allocation

IC Gateway

For any websites hosted on Internet Computer through 4EVERLAND, it has set up a dedicated IC gateway to better serve the users of Internet Computer's ecosystem. This has improved the speed and security of access for users. Currently, the 4EVERLAND IC gateway comes with a free SSL certificate and preview URL and supports custom DNS domains for IC projects.
