Indeed insisting on the client/server model is not helpful.

ZeroNet is a bit late in that game since distributed websites
go back to Freenet or so... that's why I would like to know
which distributed web hosting method makes sense to promote?

ZeroNet relies on the flaky bittorrent DHT, the ecologically
questionable proof-of-work approach of namecoin and bitcoin
and buys into the problem of oligarchic dominance of the
bitcoin blockchain, so that would probably be the last of these
technologies I would opt for.

What else is around?
