It’s been a while since I’ve done any updating to the site so I thought that I would add a little extra life back into the workflow. Originally when I started using ZeroNet I was seeing that there were a lot of external connections to the outside world, especially with some of the sites that were replicating net sites. I am please to say that running and looking through all of the items that I was scanning today, I didn’t see a single connection that was traveling outside of zeronet.
When you are working with decentralized content or really any content at all make sure that you always, always, always make a back up copy of the private key. Because it will come back to haunt you in the end if you dont. Luckly I remembered to make a back up and keep it in a really safe place, hidden behind a password so secure that I can’t seem to think of what it is to save me.
So I ran a bit of an experiment, I was running zeronet is an offline mode and I noticed that there are some sites that are severly broken in a full offline state. For me it’s a matter of taking the train, but it’s important to note the opperation of a network of communications in the attempt of a full government shutdown, such as the one that was seen in Turkey in 2016.
After going through and working with zeronet for a while, I thought I would share the process for getting a site up and running without the standard, clone site. Hugo, similar to Jekyll, is a fairly good option for doing this kinds of site since they create static sites. I originally went out looking for solutions to create new sites I kept running into the “Get Started Quickly” process provided by the clone site button.
Hello Zeronet! I’ve been interested in the development of a ZeroNet site for a while so this is my first attempt at getting something out into the decentralized web. I’ve been around for a bit, so here are some of the interesting and useful things that I have found floating around ZeroNet for others. Get All Hubs
