Stop looking for that needle in a haystack, and use manifests to organize, deploy, and find your files on Arweave.
- Map Arweave Transaction IDs to friendly names (“puppies.jpg” instead of “43t9bn023-9rtgsodfae-nw5505bnbnnghh8_9330gn55.jpg”)
- Use friendlier URLs
- Create logical groupings of content
- Reference individual transactions by their file name and/or path
- Easily host static websites, applications, and NFT projects
Our original website (circa 2020) lives forever through a manifest on ArDrive
Ever thought of hosting your website permanently? ArDrive makes this possible for simple websites that do not need frequent updates. Most static (unchanging) websites cost less than $1 to save forever using a manifest. Pay once and never worry about hosting fees again!
You can even host a decentralized React app on the permaweb by creating a manifest with all its assets. Check out our pricing calculator (above) – it’s actually an embedded React app hosted forever on Arweave.

Make Your Manifest
To use manifests, first upload your assets (e.g. static website content) to a new folder in the ArDrive web app. Then click the +NEW button and select “Advanced” then “New manifest” to add a manifest to the content in that folder.
