[Ethereum] Are there any public/free nodes to connect a Dapp front end


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?

You may use Infura as a "read only / signed transactions only" node.

The use of the API is free: https://infura.io

Your may recommend your users to use Metamask Browser extension to be able to sign transactions in your App.
