  1. Register for an Account with Unstoppable Domains
  2. Add the Unstoppable Domain Extension to Your Browser

Unstoppable Domains

The first thing you're going to need to do before you do anything else is create an account with Unstoppable Domains (affiliate link). Watch the tutorial video below.

Add the Unstoppable Domain Extension to Your Browser

Download the Unstoppable Domains browser extension. IT works in any Chromium browser such as Brave or Google Chrome. However, I recommend using Brave. You will need the browser extension to view IPFS websites.

Create a Pinata.cound Account

Once you have registered an unstoppable domain, you need to create a website and upload it to Pinata.cloud. It is important to remember that the website must use absolute paths for it work work on IPFS.

MetaMask

You're going to need a Metamask account, so that you can authenticate that it's you uploading your website to Pinata.cloud.
