Guides - Deploying BitNinja through the Linode Marketplace
Quickly deploy a Compute Instance with many various software applications pre-installed and ready to use.
BitNinja is a general purpose security-as-a-service server defense tool powered by a social defense system and many active defense modules. Its main purpose is to protect your server against hackers, botnets, attackers, and malicious activities, all with less effort and maintenance on your part. All BitNinja servers form a huge honey farm to collect and analyze attacks from different botnets and then use this knowledge to intelligently adapt to new threats.
Deploying a Marketplace App
The Linode Marketplace allows you to easily deploy software on a Compute Instance using the Cloud Manager. See Get Started with Marketplace Apps for complete steps.
Log in to the Cloud Manager and select the Marketplace link from the left navigation menu. This displays the Linode Create page with the Marketplace tab pre-selected.
Under the Select App section, select the app you would like to deploy.
Complete the form by following the steps and advice within the Creating a Compute Instance guide. Depending on the Marketplace App you selected, there may be additional configuration options available. See the Configuration Options section below for compatible distributions, recommended plans, and any additional configuration options available for this Marketplace App.
Click the Create Linode button. Once the Compute Instance has been provisioned and has fully powered on, wait for the software installation to complete. If the instance is powered off or restarted before this time, the software installation will likely fail.
To verify that the app has been fully installed, see Get Started with Marketplace Apps > Verify Installation. Once installed, follow the instructions within the Getting Started After Deployment section to access the application and start using it.
NoteEstimated deployment time: BitNinja should be fully installed within 5-10 minutes after the Compute Instance has finished provisioning.
- Supported distributions: CentOS 7, Debian 11, Debian 10, Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Recommended plan: All plan types and sizes can be used.
- License Key (required): Enter the license key for your BitNinja instance. You can purchase your license at https://bitninja.com/pricing/.
