I am using Hugo to build a website that contains a number of images, videos, and other digital assets. Due to the volume of content, I’ve become interested in migrating my site to IPFS. I’ve got a version of my site deployed in an IPFS bucket using textile.io. Now I’m trying to get my domain name to redirect to the IPFS bucket.
After searching online for a bit, it seemed like I needed to migrate my domain to Cloudflare to utilize the distributed web gateway and connect to the site via https. But now I’m wondering if that’s true. I went through what I thought was the domain transfer process this morning, but that instead seemed to just be the configuration process for setting up a free Cloudflare account and utilizing Cloudflare’s name servers.
As I’m relatively new to web server configuration and very new to the world of IPFS, I’m looking for some guidance about how to get to my goal of accessing my site via a custom domain over https when the site is resident in an IPFS bucket. I’m happy to transfer my domain to Cloudflare if that’s required.
