Linode love technology and helping our customers — we get excited about computers and we love programming. We live to solve problems, code software, and make cool stuff happen. And, Linode love to share our creations with others.
This has been our philosophy since Linode was launched in June of 2003 by founder Christopher S. Aker. Initial development took about 6 months. Linode was ahead of its time and helped define the cloud hosting industry, and continues to be a leader in virtualization hosting.

From the day I started using Linode, till now I have been completely satisfied. The few questions I asked were answered right away, hosting is always up and they have great tools for managing your node.
Linode is a great host.
Quite simply, the best VPS hosting provider I have ever had.
Runs my Drupal site so well that I have not had so much as a hiccup for as long as I can remember. The price can't be beat and the service is exceptional.
Linode has been amazing. I really wish that they could better control Disk I/O though. Sometimes other users can start hitting their nodes really hard and it affects you. Considering their cost, it's only a real issue once in a while.
The best part is that you get full access and control to your system. They offer scripts to get your server/website up and running very quickly. I didn't go this route because the scripts didn't fit my very narrow use case.
Overall, I've been extremely satisfied. The support on IRC is amazing.
Stable and powerful. I've never had any complaints. Support staff are accessible by internet (irc). The power of linode comes from the clarity of their vision. They do one thing, host linux vps, and they do it perfectly.
They also take very good care of their customers. When your vps plan is upgraded, new hardware magically appears in your VM.
It's hard for me to rate the technical support since for almost a year I'm with Linode I never actually had to use one.
The service is reliable, the control panel is awesome, providing all of the necessary features and controls right on there and the virtual console is up to help resolve any issues I might have run into while trying to break the whole thing (i.e. creating my own setup) with my incompetence.
Linode.com provides the best VPS service I've yet to come across.
Recently switched over to Linode after being a ViaVerio reseller for over 10 yrs. WOW! I have been blown away by there VPS service and really wished I had found them years ago.
Only rated support as average, because I have NEVER needed it.
This systems are fast, even at the smallest $20 a month level. A couple things that really jumped out at me when picking them was the consistently happy customers, no mater where I was; the ability to load my own distros; and a fantastic DNS manager. Verio charged us $5 a domain to use their DNS, and Linode is free.
“I’ve used 5 or 6 web hosting service providers over the last 7 years, including Livemnc and many of the popular shared hosting providers.
The one I keep coming back to is LiveMNC.com, where I currently host more than ten domains. It’s a great host for sites with low to medium traffic and everything you want is easy to set up. I’ve been impressed with their uptime and their tech support department is extremely responsive and helpful if there’s ever an issue.”
My 7 to 8 years support/sales experience is good with both web hosting companies :-
