This blog is now available on the Handshake blockchain via http://blog.hugomd and on the Ethereum Name Service (ENS) via http://hugomd.eth (or https://hugomd.eth.limo if you don’t have an ENS resolver).

Why?

I’ve seen a few people on Twitter sporting $name.eth handles, and thought I would see how ENS has matured since I last looked into it. I’ve been an avid supporter of Handshake they released their airdrop, and have a few TLDs there already, why not check out an alternative and hedge my bets?

I used Fleek to deploy to IPFS, which was almost as streamlined as Cloudflare Pages. You sign up, link your GitHub account and a repository, configure the builder you want to use, and you’re done.

I ran into a few issues finding a Docker image that supported hugo and openring, but I found one eventually.

What are your thoughts on decentralised DNS? Let me know.
