Shakudo on Solana FAQs

Common Questions

RPC Node

What do you mean by fully managed?

As opposed to buying only a machine and DIY, Shakudo provides the RPC-specific machine, installs and sets it up as a full RPC node. We keep your Solana version up-to-date and ensure the RPC server uptime. You also get direct access to our support team via Discord, Telegram, or Slack.

What are the node specifications on the dedicated node?

24 core, 1TB RAM, 4TB of storage, and bandwidth of 10gbps

Will I get access to the node right after payment?

Yes, within 1 hour.

Do you serve the RPC endpoints globally?

Yes, we have multiple locations and several partnerships with data centers. Choose the one closest to your users for lower latency.

How is access managed (api-key, IP whitelist, Origin header etc.) ?

Dedicated Nodes:
Dedicated nodes are managed by api-key, IP whitelist, and origin header.
Shared Nodes:
protected via an API key that's embedded in the URL and the location can vary. If you were to sign up today you'd likely get a URL that points to an Arlington data center. The latency is mostly important for connection to the Solana network. If you're doing development in the EU that should still be ok in terms of latency when interacting with the node.

Where are the nodes located and can we choose the location ?

As for the node location, we have tens of supported locations so you can pick the preferred city. However, please keep in mind that some locations may have higher latency.

Is the RPS numbers per endpoint or per client?

Request per second are limited per endpoint.

Validator Node

What kind of support would we get from Shakudo?

You can access our support team directly via Discord, Telegram, or Slack. We monitor the validators 24/7, handle software updates, and restart the nodes if needed.

Where can I find more information on the Solana validator?

Here is a blog we wrote to help get you started quickly with an introduction about validator nodes on Solana. You can also connect with one of our team members through the live chat.

What is included in the Shakudo fees?

Our fees include the validator infrastructure and management fee.

What are the other costs to run a Solana Validator?

To run a validator, you need to pay voting fees to Solana. You can pay voting fees by depositing SOL into the voting account directly. Please note that voting fees fluctuate over time, but we will alert you if your voting fee wallet is running low on SOL.

What are the Shakudo Validator Node specifications?

24 cores, 256 GB RAM with 5 TB of storage.

What’s the difference between a monthly and an annual subscription?

For the monthly subscription:
Price: $850/month We accept payments only with a credit card.
For the annual subscription:
Price: $800/month We accept payments with a credit card or USDC.

What's the onboarding process?

The onboarding process is very simple:

  1. You need to complete this form and the payment for our team to start activating your validator: https://www.shakudo.io/validator-nodes-intake.
  2. We will create a shared channel on Slack, Telegram or Discord, whichever one is more convenient for you to contact us and ask questions.
  3. And last, we will need some information from you: validator name, logo, preferred vanity address (up to 5 letters), website and summary to fill in the fields on validators.com.

After completing the signup and the payment, when will my node be up? 

Within 24 hours.

Which cloud providers do you support?

We work with several providers, including large clouds like AWS, GCP, Azure, and smaller data centers.

Do you offer validators that double as RPC nodes?

No, the validator node doesn't have RPC access. Providing RPC access with the validator makes the validator node unstable. You can get the RPC node separately; Find more information here.

What’s the process if any point we want to discontinue the Shakudo service?

You need to inform us 30 days before renewal, and we'll cancel the service.
