I have tried to install an ipfs node on my computer.

It works: I have stored files and i can get them with their hash.

Now, what i want to do is to "publish" my files to the "full network".

I want to access my files from this kind of url:


How can i do that ?

What is ipfs.io ? Is it a node ? Is it something centralized ?
