IPFS is the Internet
Done BETTER!

AXEL IPFS Pinning is the
fastest and easiest way to
manage your content
on the distributed web.

What is IPFS?

IPFS, also known as the “Interplanetary File System” is a peer-to-peer distributed network designed to make the web faster, more secure and more affordable. It enables the creation of completely distributed applications and aims to replace HTTPS and build a better web for everyone.

AXEL IPFS is a fast and efficient way to store, manage and distribute your content by harnessing a network to streamline how data is processed across the web.  Rather than relying a singe node, the network breaks up the content and targets the closest network to its destination.  Fast, efficient, powerful, that’s IPFS.

What’s so different about the AXEL IPFS Pinning Facility?

The AXEL IPFS Pinning Facility is the easiest IPFS tool on the planet to use! It’s the first to market with a built in file management system and putting files on IPFS can literally be done within a few clicks.

Our user focused system is:

What is IPFS pinning and why do you need it as a service?

Nodes on an IPFS store data in a way that is similar to how data is stored with a cache. This means that data is not automatically stored and is treated is system “trash” that gets thrown away. Pinning tells a server on IPFS to retain the data because it’s important.

To retain your most important data, you will need a pinning service. This enables you to pin files to IPFS and there is generally a cost associated with this type of service. If you don’t have a lot of storage space on your local device but you need some data to be retained, you’ll want to use a pinning service.

Pinning services are also great in instances where there is limited connectivity to the internet and you want to access data from anywhere at anytime.

What are the benefits to using AXEL’s IPFS Pinning Facility?

Saving on Bandwidth
and Storage

One of the greatest benefits of IPFS is being able to save on bandwidth and storage. This can be achieved through uploading and hosting all of your websites assets on IPFS. When your assets are hosted and pulled from IPFS rather than on your web hosts’ server, the costs of your storage and bandwidth decrease.

Overcoming Latency

Reductions in latency occur with IPFS, especially in third world countries or places with limited internet connectivity.

This will help power applications and services with rich media content to deliver a consistent experience globally.

Storing Files

Anyone looking for a place to store and archive their files can also do so with IPFS. One of the great things about it is that with IPFS, file duplications are removed across the network.
