We set-up a Full Node for you in less than 15 minutes!
Running an IOTA Full Node contributes to the correct functioning of the IOTA Network and provides us with an entry point to the Tangle that could be used to process our value/data transactions or interact with the Tangle while you develop solutions based on this novel technology.
Contrary to what many people believe, to set-up an IOTA Full Node on a Virtual Private Server (VPS) is very cheap and easy to do. However, there might be many cases in which you would like to have your own node to collaborate and be part of the network more actively but you find little to no time to get introduced on how this simple set-up works.

The IEN Full Nodes set-up Squad aims to help these members by configuring nodes for them on a screen sharing video call. You basically get in touch with our squad, get some advice about what VPS you should purchase depending on your budget, and then provide a member of the Squad with the information to connect to the VPS and set-up de Full Node for you. Once you finish, we will explain basic ops to you (change the VPS password, restart the node, view the data at the Dashboard) so you can keep controlling your node from time to time.
