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.

The most significant benefit of this integration is that you can completely bypass the server creation and connection process, saving at least 10 minutes.
