Skynet Webportals are low cost servers that sit between Skynet and everyday users, enabling them to access Skynet content without needing to operate any special software. As Skylinks are generated, they can be shared with anyone to retrieve data from any Webportal. The original uploader does not need to stay online in order for the file to remain available. The Sia network serves as the backend storage layer for Skynet and handles all of the pinning, guaranteeing both high speeds and excellent uptime.

Sia is the leading decentralized cloud storage platform. No signups, no servers, no trusted third parties. Sia leverages blockchain technology to create a data storage marketplace that is more robust and more affordable than traditional cloud storage providers.
