QuikNode offers the fastest Ethereum Nodes. With QuikNode you can save your developer time without compromising on Node quality or performance. In this article, we will help you to understand why you should use QuikNode.

High Volume, Fast Transaction

Peers

You can see the number of peers connected to your node on QuikNode’s dashboard and also IPs and other client information of those peer nodes.

Scalability and Load

Security and Privacy

  • Your node is accessed through a link only shared with you, hence removing user login for accessing your node. To enhance privacy, we don’t track a particular user.
  • As a user, you don’t need to concern yourself about security as our security engineers take care of this for you.
  • QuikNode uses HTTPS and WSS to increase security.
  • As a business, if you run your own node into your subnet, then you don’t want to allow any unknown IP (Peer Node) into your network. Using QuikNode you don’t need to worry about this problem.

Maintenance

QuikNode solves this problem for its users. The team continuously monitors updates relevant to your node and applies them automatically. QuikNode engineers also watch for forks and take actions accordingly to safeguard users. This saves a lot of time for you as a developer so you can focus on your application.

Analytics

  • Node Logs
  • Average Load on the Node
  • # of Requests on the Node
  • # of Connections
  • WebSocket Messages
  • Block Number

Flexibility

You can spin up an Ethereum Node on any network and client, and plug it into your application using a Web3 URL (a hashed https:// and wss:// URL is provided inside the UI) in minutes.

One can also change networks, clients, and locations with a few clicks. For example, one can launch a Ropsten node on Parity client in Bangalore for development, then switch to MainNet in Amsterdam for production. This saves a lot of time and helps in the testing of your application!

Reliability

Ethereum Network Security

If you can keep a node running that accepts incoming connections, you’ll really be helping the network a lot. — Satoshi Nakamoto

Ethereum Archive Node

Normally these Nodes take weeks to sync, however, one can spin up an Archive Node with full Trace Module Data in just a couple of hours!

And these are just some of the hundreds of projects using QuikNode today:

Is it worth it?

QuikNode saves a lot of time for development teams so they can always focus on application building!

QuikNode makes the Node layer virtually invisible for around $150/month. 7-day terms are also available (for those looking to test things first), as well as 3, 6, and 12-month terms at discounts of 10%, 15%, and 20% — respectively. You can add time to your node whenever you want, inside the Node UI.

You want things to ‘just work’ — and this is exactly how QuikNode approaches nodes… simple, powerful, effective. Once you plug in your Web3 URL into your code, you need just to focus on your app and its features. To the moon 🌝
