What is bit.site?
bit.site is a gateway that resolves .bit (opens in a new tab) account records and associated IPFS/IPNS/Skynet content. It provides easy access for users and dApp developers to host and access static sites created using a combination of IPFS/IPNS/Skynet and .bit.
The increasing centralization of internet infrastructure is bringing about multiple threats, such as single-point failures (like AWS), some unreliable IPFS gateways, and potential censorship. More importantly, if the decentralized web continues to exhibit frustratingly slow connection speeds or even service unavailability, the widespread application of dApps will remain a distant dream.
The bit.site project aims to improve the resilience of dApps by offering a public service as an alternative access method. It provides familiar connection speeds and experiences for users.
bit.site dynamically captures all requests to *.bit.site, automatically resolving the IPFS/IPNS/Skynet content hashes for the corresponding .bit account records. It returns the relevant static content via HTTPS, enabling users to access decentralized networks with zero configuration on modern browsers.
