Innovation doesn’t wait. Neither should you. In the rapidly evolving world of Web3 development, staying ahead means choosing partners who won’t slow you down. That’s where Chainstack comes in. With us, not only do you get the most innovative blockchain hosting solutions, but also a partner dedicated to your success.

Powerful and intuitive hosting services not only streamline operations but also drive the performance and potential of Web3 applications. As a leader in the provision of advanced blockchain technology, Chainstack is uniquely positioned to cater to these needs.

At Chainstack, we understand the intricacies of Web3 development. The complexities revolving around speed, security, scalability, sovereignty, latency, and more shape the ecosystem in which developers operate. Recognizing these challenges, we have designed our blockchain hosting services with an emphasis on customization, flexibility, and ease of use.

What is Chainstack Node-as-a-Service?

At the core of our offerings is powerful Node-as-a-Service model that provides full-featured, convenient, and scalable solutions to meet your unique Web3 development needs. It represents a robust set of building blocks that can shape the trajectory of your projects, driving growth in both scope and business impact.

With Chainstack, you gain instant access to a realm where blockchain node hosting becomes an effortless and intuitive task. Our aim is to give you the right tools and the freedom to focus more on the developmental side of your projects, while we deal with the heavy lifting of node management and efficient running.

Our range of cloud hosting options for nodes, from Chainstack-managed and Hybrid to Chainstack Cloud and Self-hosted and Bring your own Cloud solutions, offer a diverse palette to fit your Web3 project’s needs and preferences. We forge ahead with the implication of the hosting capabilities of our robust Node-as-a-Service, designed to meet every aspect of your blockchain developer journey.

Plug and Play nodes with Chainstack-managed hosting

Get a taste of a fully-managed blockchain service with our Chainstack-managed hosting. Designed for those who seek a ready-to-deploy solution, this service brings you an impressive orchestration of features without the need for self-management.

Whether you’re a small-scale developer or an expansive enterprise, our intuitive user interface makes the process ten times easier. Access new features as soon as they’re out, while staying worry-free about platform performance and uptime. We also offer white-label branding on our enterprise tier for those looking for a more personalized touch.

Supported cloud providers and locations

We understand that the location of your nodes significantly impacts your application’s functionality. That’s why we’ve partnered up with leading cloud providers like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and Virtuozzo.

Simultaneously, we offer quite a range of location options, including US, UK, Singapore, Japan, Germany, and the Netherlands to name a few. If you still can’t find the location you need, reach out to us, and we’ll be more than happy to accommodate you.

Hybrid hosting: A perfect blend of control and convenience

Our Hybrid Hosting is another powerful offering targeting developers prioritizing self-sovereignty of nodes, keys, and infrastructure. With the perfect balance of our managed services and your control over some components, developers gain the freedom to operate certain parts of the infrastructure as their project or regulatory compliance may require.

This option allows you to select which parts of the Chainstack infrastructure you wish to manage yourself. On the other end, we’ll take care of the implementation, ensuring that you focus on what truly matters most—creating value with your project. A perfect blend of control and convenience.

It’s a great fit for developers who are keen on self-sovereignty of nodes, keys, and infrastructure but don’t want to roll their own orchestration. A typical such use case scenario is when a software provider uses Chainstack through the platform’s UI or API as a management dashboard to oversee nodes, networks, and services operating seamlessly within their own bespoke infrastructure.

Chainstack-managed vs. Hybrid hosting

How you plan to use blockchain technology for your project impacts the hosting choice you make. While both Chainstack-managed and Hybrid hosting options provide excellent capabilities, it’s important to understand the most suitable circumstances for each.

In Chainstack-managed hosting, you enjoy complete node monitoring including node availability and health, full logging, access to daily automated backups, and more. All these are aimed to provide an effortless experience. On the contrary, Hybrid hosting focuses on giving you more control with partial node monitoring and availability to use your backup solution, billing only for the subscription and node management fee, and allowing flexibility to use your cloud infrastructure.

If your focus is ease of operation, low operational costs, and near-instant node availability, Chainstack-managed hosting is the go-to choice. On the other hand, Hybrid hosting is suitable when the blockchain needs to run in your cloud—a requirement often driven by compliance-related concerns or to reduce DApp latency by collocating the DApp and node on the same server.

Here’s a comprehensive overview comparing the Chainstack-managed and Hybrid hosting options:
