Static Websites, Asset Canisters, DNS

I see that it is now possible to create canisters directly from the NNS.

I have been holding off going all in with this until things have had time to settle down.

Is anyone already successfully deploying static websites to the IC without going through Fleek?

Are there any developments around asset canisters?

When can we expect to see some DNS news?

Thanks in advance for any insight!


Yes, this is doable now! I’ll be recording a video demonstration on how to deploy an asset canister soon, and we are finalizing our docs written docs on it now.

As for DNS, that project hasn’t been completed yet, but we have a path forward that will be the first implementation we’re aware of for a new web standard around multi-party TLS signing. I’m excited to see that project come through


That’s great to hear. Thanks for the update @kpeacock!

@kpeacock regarding DNS, can you say whether or not it’s worth investing in traditional domain names?
