The Storj network allows you to store and retrieve your data, but it is not made for hosting dynamic web sites.
To publish your site, your need to have either compute service which will run your web-server, or web-service. The Storj DCS object storage does not offer compute or web services to host your site.
Instead it offers S3-compatible object storage.
However, it could host a static web-site:
If your site uses the S3 object storage already, you can easily switch to Storj DCS:
- Create S3 credentials on Storj-hosted S3-compatible Gateway
- Configure your S3 part to work with our
S3 Gatewayinstead of AWS S3:
Endpointwill be offered during credentials generation, but you can select it from preferred regions
AWS Access Key IDcan be taken from the log of the S3 Gateway
AWS Secret Access Keycan be taken from the log of the S3 Gateway
In addition you can use Storj DCS:
- via Self-hosted S3-compatible Gateway on your hosting (the
Endpointwill be http://localhost:7777);
- directly (without an intermediate S3 Gateway) via Uplink CLI or programmable access via libuplink.
