Pricing and Cost Advice
"I pay just over £20 per month and have done so ever since I started eight years ago, which to me is good value.""The pricing model is very simple. I like the simplicity of it, starting at $5, then doubling as it goes up from there. That is a brilliant idea, and it is not complex at all. It is about as dead simple as you can imagine. So, if you want to double what you have, then you double your price, pay the money, and reboot. It is done. It's that simple. You can't beat that.""One key difference is that pricing is very hard to come by and to understand with all the bigger companies. Their pricing models are so weird and it's hard to figure out exactly how much I am going to pay for this kind of service. Everything is piecemeal. With Linode, it's simple and straightforward. You know exactly what you will have to pay at the end of the day.""Compared to other service providers, like AWS and Google, the cost of services are much less and more affordable. We are saving about 90 percent by going with Linode versus other cloud providers.""The pricing model is very simple. If you have very small applications, you can use the plan which costs $5 per month. That gives you 50 GB of memory and almost 1 GB of RAM. If you need more than you have to select the next plan which is $10 per month, which has about 70 GB of data and 2 GB of RAM.""When we started with the service, the cost was approximately €5 per month.""The value for the price is really good.""Pricing is very good and flexible, according to the resources required."

Top Answer: The monthly cost depends on your requirements. The pricing is absolutely spot on. I think whoever thought about how their pricing should work and how their sizing should work, clearly understands the… more »
Top Answer: Before they changed the dashboard, I found some of the more granular options easier to find. However, it was just a matter of getting used to the new interface.
