Seamlessly Migrate Your Data from NFT.Storage to Filebase

Introduction

As of June 30th, 2024, NFT.Storage will discontinue uploads to their classic product. This transition requires users to find alternative storage solutions. Filebase offers a robust and reliable service for migrating and securely storing your pinned data, designed for exceptional performance and to maintain high availability.

Why Choose Filebase?

Unlike many providers that use high-cost centralized cloud providers such as AWS, Filebase leverages bare metal server infrastructure and operates out of multiple data centers around the world. By running on bare metal, we're able to provide an extremely fast, reliable, and secure IPFS pinning service while eliminating the cloud provider middleman. This significantly reduces our operational costs, increases performance, and allows us to pass these cost savings and performance gains onto you, the user.

Step 3: Create a Bucket and Import NFT.Storage Data

  1. Log into your paid Filebase account.
  2. Navigate to Buckets on the left-hand side of the dashboard.
  3. Click on Create Bucket.
  4. Give your bucket a unique, all-lowercase name (e.g., nftstoragetransfer).
  5. Select NFT.Storage from the Import Source dropdown menu and enter your API key.

At this stage, Filebase will automatically import all pinned data from NFT.Storage. The status of each pin will be marked as Queued to start, and will quickly transition to Pinning.
