Linode is a reliable cloud hosting company that mainly focuses on providing Linux-based cloud solutions enabling you to create and deploy servers through a web interface.
Linode also allows users to extend their server capacity with the appropriate volume on demand. It is very easy to use and has a straightforward interface. If you are a Linode customer, you can integrate your Linode account with your ServerAvatar account.
