I have a small Dapp written in Meteor (client only) that reads some contract and account info from the blockchain. I can deploy my front-end code for free on meteor.com (or a variety of other places), but I still need a node to connect to.
Do I need to host my own node? If so, any recommendations? I'm using Digital Ocean $5 VPS now, and it's really, really slow.
If not, are there free/public options?
