Novice here. Firstly, I’m very fascinated about IPFS and the distributed web. I have a question now.
Background: I want to run my public website completely on IPFS. It’s a photo gallery with many hi-res image files.
What I’ve achieved so far: having one always-on node, putting files in it, attaching a domain name to it, and having a functioning website completely hosted on my node.
My question: What if I run a second node, placed on another building?
Is there any wisdom in doing this? Will it ‘improve’ stability and speed of my website?
If I run several of my own nodes, connected as peers, will it be good for high traffic?
My goal is to make my website totally running without me paying for any third-party service.
Let’s say I’m only willing to pay for the domain name, and the hardware and internet costs for the nodes.
Thanks in advance.
