Forward Factory Front-End Hosting Solutions

1. Amazon Web Services (AWS) Hosting

Implementation Overview:

At Forward Factory, we have leveraged Amazon Web Services (AWS) to offer a sophisticated and customizable hosting solution. This implementation enables users to utilize personalized subdomains under the domain, showcasing their unique dApp. This will extend to the ability to add custom domains by CNAME pointing and ENS records as well.

  • Our solution integrates with the paid plan of AWS, currently offered for free for all Forward Factory users.

  • Domain Configuration: We have streamlined the subdomain setup using Amazon Route 53, facilitating the configuration of CNAME and A records.

  • Management and Scalability: The integration with NGINX and Amazon Route 53 allows for efficient management and scalability of the subdomain capabilities, enhancing the overall user experience.

2. ICP Hosting

Technical Insights:

Our approach to Internet Computer Protocol (ICP) hosting diverges from conventional AWS hosting, focusing on the unique aspects of the Internet Computer blockchain.

Key components include:

  • Canisters and Cycles: We deploy programs within canisters, which are computational units on the blockchain. These operations are powered by cycles, derived from ICP utility tokens.

Deployment Strategy:

  • SDK Integration: We have incorporated the Internet Computer (IC) SDK to facilitate website hosting.

  • Website Deployment: Our process involves deploying websites using static files generated from the GrapesJS UI builder.

  • Resource Management: A key aspect is managing the cycles wallet to ensure sufficient resources for deployment.

3. BNB Greenfield Hosting

Implementation Overview:

BNB Greenfield hosting has been implemented to mirror the ease of use similar to AWS S3 bucket services for hosting dApp frontends.

Process Outline:

  • API Authorization: We have established a system for obtaining API call authorization. Reference

  • Bucket Creation and Management: Using the GetApproval function, we create and manage storage buckets for dApp templates. Reference

  • Content Upload and Access: The deployment includes uploading static files to buckets and retrieving URLs for the hosted websites, offering a choice between Virtual-hosted-style and Path-style URLs. URL Retrieval
