# Types

Chainstack supports deploying an Ethereum node of the following types:

  • Shared — the node resources are shared with other platform users. With a shared node, you pay for JSON-RPC requests to the node and do not pay for the compute and storage resources used by the node.
  • Dedicated — the node resources are exclusive to you. With a dedicated node, you pay for the compute and storage resources used by the node and do not pay for JSON-RPC requests to the node.

While a shared node's resources are not exclusive to you, the shared node's access and credentials are exclusive to each user.

You can also invite other users to your organization to share the access and credentials of a dedicated or a shared node. See Invite a user to the organization.
