Can I Transfer A Linode To Another User
I have been asked to help someone set up a simple website instance.
I was thinking of setting this up on my Linode account (most likely a $10.00 instance (very small local specific website; bicycling in Bellingham, Washington).
What I wonder is whether or not I can transfer this Linode to my friend
after he opens his own account on Linode?
Or would we have to start over again?
This Linode would be on the standard backup. If Linode does not allow transfer of Linodes to another user, can I at least let my friend have access to my backups if he has to start over again with a new Linode?
You have the ability to transfer a Linode from one account to another using the Service Transfer feature. The sending account will generate a token and share it with the user receiving the transfer. During this process the Backups Service will be transferred as well.
Hope this helps!
