Resolving Website Tips

IPNS: InterPlanetary Name System

4EVERLAND provides IPNS service for domain name owners. That means there is no need to update the IPFS hash of the SNS every time you update the website.
At the same time, 4EVERLAND Hosting service supports Deploy Hooks function, allowing you to complete the automatic update of DWeb under the domain only by updating the authorized repo code. This will significantly reduce development costs and workload, while also improving efficiency.

The gateway: 4sol.xyz

4EVERLAND is managing the gateway of 4sol.xyz. You can access CID from your domain by simply appending 4sol.xyz to your .sol domain name.
This gateway service is for all SNS users, but it provides different services depending on whether you deploy through 4EVERLAND. If you deploy your SNS+IPFS site with 4EVERLAND Hosting service, your DWeb will enjoy IPFS and global acceleration service provided by 4EVERLAND which is extensible to meet your requirements for DWeb access performance.
If you deploy your site on IPFS and set your SNS content via other platforms, 4EVERLAND will make your DWeb accessible through ipfs.io, the public gateway of IPFS.
