How to host a website in decentralized blockchain using Bitcoin cryptography and BitTorrent network?
In this article we are going to learn how to host a website in
In the internet world, every information on the internet is stored on the centralized servers.
Before, Knowing how to host the website in the decentralized network.
We should know about the decentralized network, centralized network and what is blockchain?
In a Centralized network, there will be a server which acts as central point of the network. The server must be a central hub where every data that we send over the network l pass through that server before it reaches the receiver.
Whatsapp is one of the real-time example which works on the centralized server. Every message that we send through the Whatsapp messenger will first reach the whatsapp server and then it will send to the receiver.
Decentralized network is peer to peer connection it doesn't need the central point. The data send over the network will directly reach the receiver. There is no fixed topology for this network.
The blockchain eliminates that and stores the data in the decentralized servers that is it will not be stored in a single server instead of that it will create a peer to peer connection.
The data in the blockchain does not rely on a central server. So, this makes our data more secure.
