The permaweb is composed of web pages and services running on the arweave blockchain. We are planning to post a version of the ReactorLab web site on the permaweb.
Why? Since arweave is a blockchain, web sites posted to its blockchain are permanently stored on the peer network. This service is provided by arweave for a one-time fee, which is computed to provide distributed storage long into the future.
If ReactorLab.net’s current host goes out of business, or our lifetime hosting plan ends with our life, the permaweb version will live on.
We thank onlyArweave.com for introducing us to arweave and the permaweb. We use the Simply Static WordPress plugin to export a static version of the site, then upload the site to ardrive, which puts it on the arweave permaweb. The one-time payment in AR tokens is made using the arconnect wallet browser extension. Dynamic sites which store and retrieve data on the permaweb can also be hosted there.
