EDNS DeDrive User Guide

Updated: Jul 26, 2023

The idea of decentralization in storage has gained traction since it became apparent that centralized storage systems undermine essential yet vital values like full ownership and control of data.

EDNS has rolled out a hybrid storage solution- DeDrive, which leverages blockchain technology and employs a user-centric architecture. It is a layer 2 decentralized storage solution that connects to Web2 Cloud Object Storage and Web3 Decentralized Storage.


  • A single interface to multiple Web2 and Web3 storage providers

  • A powerful management console to manage data, set permissions, and more

  • Higher availability and usability

  • Better data exchange between Web2 and Web3

Let’s take a sneak peek into DeDrive. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to use DeDrive.

Step 1

First, access the DeDrive platform at

Step 2

Register an account and Sign in.

Step 3

After signing in, you will then access your account dashboard with DeDrive features such as managing your data pods, secure and private spaces where you store your data on the server, and how to top up your account.

Your pods' dashboard. Each pod you create is a bucket that can hold dozens of folders with countless files.

Step 4

Click on the Create pod tab to customize your data pod. Note that you can choose to create a public or private pod.

Step 5

Once the pod is created you can double-click on it to start adding your files.

The view of your folders inside the pod.

Step 6

Access the Billing section on the account dashboard to view your balance and top it up

Step 7

If you need to top up your account, click the “Top Up” button, select the amount, and then check out.

Step 8

Lastly, submit your payment details and your DeDrive account will be credited with the amount set.

You only need to log into your account and continue enjoying the DeDrive storage services.

Having wrapped up the steps, we urge members also to find the DeDrive Youtube video guide in the link below.

Interestingly, we also intend to tokenize the DeDrive accounts of EDNS domain holders with funds giving them up to 30 Gigabytes of memory to enjoy DeDrive when it officially rolls out. However, as the storage solution is blockchain-underpinned, every action, like adding and downloading files attracts gas fees. Therefore, users will have to top up their DeDrive accounts when the balance credited by EDNS is depleted.
