Like many cloud hosting providers Linode offers various pricing plans. In the Standard Plans (their classic plans) they have the “Linode 2GB” which is $10/mo, 2TB transfer, 25GB of SSD storage, etc. Another example is the “Linode 8GB” which is $40/mo, 5TB transfer, 160GB SSD storage, etc. Some people seem to have been confused so here it is, a “Nanode 1GB” is a “Linode 1GB” with a different name.
Many of you already know that last month Linode gave out free storage upgrades to all of their plans. Linode is one of the few companies I know that consistently gives out more resources every couple of years without increasing the prices of their plans. A very, very, rare business practice.
Linode’s blog post announced the new plans but didn’t really cover exactly what the changes were. Here’s a graphic showing the previous plans and the their storage numbers, and how the new numbers compare:
Linode has added a new field in the “Contact Info” form under “Accounts”. This may mean some changes. A new VAT Number field has been found on the contact info/billing form in the Linode Manager. This hints that Linode may soon be charging customers VAT. The help text next to the field says, “EU VAT Registration Number, if applicable.”, hinting that this may only apply to European Union (EU) customers.
