These payment options are available for both shared and dedicated node packages, and if you prefer, you can still pay via bank transfer with the assistance of our dedicated Customer Support unit.

Furthermore, we have introduced discounted unlimited access packages (6-month and 12-month) in the account dashboard. Users can take advantage of significant discounts on our two largest unlimited packages, saving 10% on the 6-month access plan and 20% on the yearly plan. The longer the package duration you choose, the more cost-effective our services become.

Simplify Node Management with Four Easy Steps and Stay Informed Prepare to be amazed.

Node management can often be a hassle, especially when packages of requests or unlimited access unexpectedly expire. But with GetBlock, those worries are a thing of the past.

Introducing our new and improved notifications module! Say goodbye to downtime and stay informed about your request status at all times.

To set up notifications, simply navigate to the “Account Settings” menu (located at the bottom left, indicated by numbers). Within this menu, select your node type (shared limited, shared unlimited, or dedicated) and choose the specific events you wish to receive notifications for.

For limited packages, select the desired number of requests (ranging from 40,000 to 5,000,000) at which you would like to be alerted. For unlimited packages (both shared and dedicated nodes), choose the notification timeframe.

By default, you will receive alerts when you have 500k and 40k requests remaining, as well as one day before the end of your access period. These default settings ensure that you are always aware of your usage and can take necessary actions in a timely manner.
