    Awesome! Time to stack up some referrals!

    For new customers, is the $100 credit immediate, or do they need to pay their first-month up front?

  2. Christopher Aker

    New Customer: Sign up, pay first invoice (through July), land in an account with $100 credit.

    Existing Customer: Add service, pay first invoice (through July), don’t pay again for that service until November 1st.

    Does the existing customers one apply to upgrading a Linode to the next service level?

  4. Author Photo

    What is not to love about Linode?!

  5. Author Photo

    Fantastic! I hope this is once again successful for Linode. In 2010, a similar giveaway was offered, during which time I took advantage of the credit to simply try out Linode and compare it with my existing hosting provider. I have been a loyal Linode customer ever since, so clearly, their small initial gift has paid off at least once for them in the long run. Keep up the good work!

    If I were to pay for a year’s worth of a couple services, would I get those three months off?

    Could I resize a current linode I’ve paid a year for and get a discount?


  7. Author Photo

    That’s the way to do a promotion!
    I love the viral potential and the direct benefit to to users. Great to have all the information on one simple page too.

  8. Christopher Aker

    @techiem2 – it does not apply to resizing/upgrading. Only adding a new service.

    @Spaceghost – Annuals with the Giveaway work like this: you would pay for the entire year like normal (with the annual discounts), however in August, September, and November you’d receive one month of credit applied to your account.

  9. Author Photo

    Happy B Day guys.

    Keep up the good job !


  10. Author Photo

    @caker – Oh solid. I’m working on a project over here, and want to pull in a few more VMs soon. You guys are really awesome.

  11. Author Photo

    Great idea to bring in new users, I’m glad you are doing this.

    – Will new sign-ups be required to pay for an entire month of service to receive the credit or just the partial month (till July 1st)?

    – Will we be notified immediately on sign-up if we made the cut for the giveaway? On the unlikely event the user didn’t make it in time for the giveaway would they get a full refund if they canceled the account immediately?

  12. Author Photo

    Does the giveaway for existing customers include adding a backup service?

  13. Author Photo

    A million thanks for not tying this to retweeting or liking or some other gimmicky social media contest that turns your customers into monkeys. That you aren’t requesting distribution as a condition of the contest makes me infinitely more likely to actually share it, and leaves me with a far better impression of the company. Nice work.

    @John – See my first comment reply – new customers pay through July, then get a credit.

    The black ‘giveaway’ box on the signup page carries through the entire signup process – and will refresh to show how many Giveaway Bucks are remaining – so you’ll be able to tell BEFORE you complete the signup how close to the wire you are. If you don’t make the cut and don’t want the service and cancel we’ll refund your money. We’re not out to screw anyone.

    @Kyhwana – no, not this time, just adding Linodes and NodeBalancers.

  16. Author Photo

    Happy Birthday, Linode! Let’s see what the next years will be like!

  17. Author Photo

    Happy Birthday, Linode!

  18. Author Photo

    @久酷 = =

  19. Author Photo

    This is really awesome, I am going to opt-in and send few new clients.

    Happy Birthday Linode!

  20. Author Photo

    Will I enjoy the giveaway if I migrate the existing instance to a new instance? (e.g. launch a new one, but remove an old one later)

  21. Author Photo

    Happy Birthday, Linode!

    I’m an existing member. If I add new Linode after 12:00PM EDT this Tuesday, how would I know if I am among of those lucky customers who win 3 months free service? Will I receive an email?

  22. Author Photo
  23. Author Photo

    great deal! if, as an existing customer, i get multiple (2 or 3) new linode vps’s, does this offer apply on all of them?
    thanks! and thanks for the great service the last few years.

  24. Christopher Aker

    @Jack – we won’t prevent anyone from doing that, if you really want to game it that way.

    @arpeggio – It will show you on the banner at the top of the entire Linode Manager. It will also show a box at the top of that Linode’s dashboard for a week or two.

    @andrew – “* Limit one giveaway bonus per customer.” …

  25. Author Photo

    Awesome! I can’t wait, I’ll definitely be signing up come tuesday.

  26. Author Photo

    Just to be 100% clear, this is 12PM as in noon. NOT midnight. Correct?

  27. Author Photo

    This is really awesome.

    Happy Birthday Linode!!!

  28. Author Photo

    I am a new customer. I plan to pay Linode 512 for one year. So I get the $100 award, can I use this $100 next year when I re-new my plan? Is there any expiration of this $100 credit?

  29. Author Photo

    Count me in! I am currently using Linode 1536 and have been a happy customer for more than an year but with this promo I see great chance of getting additional server!

    Keep up the good work and I wish you have a superb BD party!

  30. Author Photo

    Can I use the API to add this linode? to get 3 months?

  31. Author Photo

    That’s 2am my time 🙁 How long do you expect it to take until it’s all gone?

  32. Author Photo

    Martin: Easy way to keep them strain: 12:01 PM is just after noon. 12:01 AM is just after midnight. 😉

  33. Author Photo

    thanks! as an existing customer, I only see the promotion referenced from the “sign up” screen, not from the “add linode” screen in the linode-manager, does it matter which I use?

  34. Author Photo

    Awesome offer! I wish I knew somebody that could use a new host.
    Happy birthday Guys! I have never had better hosting service, I will likely be a customer for as long as Linode is around, which is hopefully another 9 years 🙂

  35. Author Photo

    At what point during the checkout process will I know if I have gotten the promo?

    I need a 1024 in about a month, but if I can buy it now and save $120 in the long run I want to do that. Otherwise I can’t afford it until there is actually a business behind it 😉

    I guess I could go through the whole process and immediately cancel if I’m too late, but it would be nice if there was a countdown with the amount of money left. before hitting the sign-up button..

  36. Christopher Aker

    @Aaron – there is a black box throughout the entire sign up process that displays the running total. There is also a banner across the entire Linode Manager with the same information. You’ll know before, during, and after. Good luck!

  37. Christopher Aker

    @Richard Cornwell – The API is not wired into the Giveaway, sorry. Only new signups and services added via the Linode Manager for the giveaway.

  38. Author Photo

    I’m planning on getting a Linode 2048 for one year which comes to $891.85
    (with the 10% discount).

    Will i get a $100 credit for the one year prepaid scheme too ? If so, will
    my card be billed $791.85 instead of $891.85 ?


  39. Christopher Aker

    @Yashesh Bhatia – For new signups, you’ll pay the full first invoice, then get a $100 credit.

  40. Author Photo

    Not able to go for it, linode manager keeps asking for password and registration not happening 🙁

  41. Author Photo

    I keep getting the login screen as well. I had almost placed an order when I got all this trouble.

    I also get occasional 502 and 504 HTTP responses.

    I’m afraid I will be too late once this is over.

  42. Author Photo

    Was able to make the payment (and it was charged) but it went directly back to my Linodes tab and I didn’t get to create it. Trying to load support page but getting 504s. Hopefully the payment at least was in time to be apart of the giveaway, il contact support about it when the rush has died down.

    Happy Birthday Linode!

  43. Author Photo

    @Larry I agree … Linode seems to have been hit pretty hard.

  44. Author Photo

    Yes! I got through! Let’s hope the discount does kick in in August.

    Thanks, Linode!

  45. Author Photo

    Hmm, well it finally processed; but on the screen after charging my card I got an “Oops” page. My card was successfully charged, and when I try to log in it says pending activation; but I have not received an email confirmation.

    I’ll try logging in here in a few.

    Should I contact Customer Support if I can’t log in shortly? My account email is the same email I’m using on this comment (Blog admin should be able to see it).

  46. Author Photo

    Successfully added a new linode on 4th try! Thanks Linode and happy 9th birthday 🙂

  47. Christopher Aker

    An annoying query caused some DB locking issues early on, but has since been fixed. We’re working on auditing everything so hang tight if a credit isn’t on your account just yet!

  48. Author Photo

    Happy birthday

  49. Author Photo

    ah dangit.

    I don’t need a new Linode. Just wanna upgrade one 🙁

  50. Author Photo

    I get a linode 512 and paid 19.95$ for first invoice.
    If i stop the service, receiving an accredit on my Linode’s account, in August i will receive also the 100$ accredit?
    Or I have to let “open” my linode from now to October?

  51. Author Photo

    Got it! Thanks! You guys are great — I’ve had a Linode account for 7 1/2 years, and haven’t even felt a need to price competitors in all that time. Rock on!

  52. Author Photo

    Happy birthday Linode, great services and thx for the gift.

  53. Author Photo

    How long until new accounts are activated? Mine has been pending activation for an hour and I’m still uncertain if my credit card has been charged twice – the first processing attempt returned me to the sign up page and the second one to a “whoops!” page

  54. Author Photo

    Got one too. Thanks, Linode! Happy Birthday!

  55. Author Photo

    I booked a Linode (1024 MB) and got the promotional credit. Shall I keep the node running till July end in order to avail the credit? Or can I remove the node and boot it sometime during next week?

    Oh, and happy birthday 🙂

  56. Author Photo

    Happy birthday Linode! You guys deserve a beer !

  57. Author Photo

    Happy birthday Linode!

  58. Author Photo

    Happy Birthday! Linode!

  59. Author Photo

    I love that Linode’s servers are so freakin fast! Never oversold. Keep it up 🙂

  60. Author Photo

    Happy Annerversary! Wanted to try a new OS, and also deal with the limitations of my current linode, this gave me the good chance to try it out – Thanks for the service!

  61. Author Photo

    Happy 9th birthday Linode!

  62. Author Photo

    Ouuupsss…. too late !

    I just added an alert in my calendar for next year 🙂

    Live long and prosper Linode !!!

  63. Author Photo

    Hope to see some numbers from the sale. It clearly brought in a lot of money in just 12 hours!

  64. Author Photo

    Had some trouble signing up, but you guys made it right. Awesome job.

    I also want to say that you have fantastic documentation.

    Happy birthday, too!
