Simplify how you manage your infrastructure on Linode. With the addition of Google Pay to support alternative payment options, remember that you can also log in using third-party authentication with Google or GitHub.

We have additional items on the roadmap to improve the ease of use for customers in Q4 2021.
In May 2021, we expanded the capabilities of our Images service, which included the ability to upload a custom image and deploy it to multiple Linodes. The release included an introductory offer for users to leverage all Images free of charge. If you are currently using images, you will see usage included on your bills starting September 1, 2021, at our standard rate of $0.10 per GB. Store up to 25 individual images or a maximum 150 GB on your account. Recovery Images, generated automatically after a Linode gets deleted, will continue to be provided at no cost.
