Overall Satisfaction with Linode

We use Linode to host some of our infrastructure. We also used Linode to host services for our clients, as we are a web development agency. Regarding our direct experience, we host 4 servers and other internal services for more than 1 year. We have 2 other clients hosting their infrastructure in Linode, mostly using cloud servers.
  • Control panel is simple and easy to use
  • They provide a good range of hosting services and options
  • Response time is good in their support channels
  • Initial configuration for email ports in servers is hard to manage, you need to open a ticket to handle it correctly
  • Missing on-demand databases
  • Missing on-demand datastores, like redis or memcache
  • Stackscripts looks cool, but I'd like a curated list to trust
  • Reduced costs
  • Peace of mind, as their support is good
I've tested many other hosting options... I have the feeling that Linode was superior in terms of technical profile, response time, and overall support.
They've been excellent at resolving our issues, good response times. This is the top 1 reason we use and recommend Linode.
Well suited if you need a good balance between ease of use, good technical profile, performance and quality of service.
If you need something more complex, you end up falling into AWS or digital ocean as they offer a wider range of services, being DO a serious competitor because of their database offering.

Evaluating Linode and Competitors

Yes - Rackspace, mainly because of the price, switching to Linode cut the price by half and we're happy with the support we get.
