Additional Features

Two-Factor Authentication

Two-factor authentication increases the security of your Linode Manager account by requiring two forms of authentication — something you have, and something you know.

IPv6 Support

Native IPv6 support is available at all 9 of our datacenter locations. Each Linode starts off with one global IPv6 address and additional IPv6 addresses can be added at no charge.

Rescue Mode

Use Rescue mode to recover from critical errors. Perform system recovery tasks and transfer data off your disk images, if necessary.

DNS Manager

Oversee your domains with our full-featured DNS manager. Supports both master and slave zones.


Easily scale your Linode to handle increases in traffic with just a few clicks. Resizing is as simple as logging in, clicking, and letting our system do the rest of the work.


Clone an entire configuration or just the disk images you select to another Linode. Combine with the IP failover feature to create your own high-availability cluster.

Supported Distributions

Quickly deploy Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, Fedora, Arch, Gentoo, openSUSE, and Slackware images (see our full list) or run a custom distro.


Preserve your disk’s fully prepared software environment. Create snapshots of a disk volume preserving paths, files, boot information and filesystem details for subsequent replication.
