Frequently Asked Questions

How do I sign up for the free trial?

Fill out the form above and a sales representative will contact you to understand your workload requirements and then determine the amount of credits you need to evaluate the Linode Cloud.  You will need a Linode account to participate in the free trial.  To open a free account visit our sign up page.

What can I do with my free trial?

Once you complete the sign-up process and agree to the Terms of Service, you can use your $1,000 USD or more services credit towards any of Linode’s Compute plans, Object Storage, Block Storage, or NodeBalancers offerings within the first 60 days.  If you exceed the credit within the 60-day period, the overage will be charged at standard rates as outlined on our Pricing page.

Do I qualify for a free trial?

The free trial is intended for new business customers only.  Although, if you have a personal Linode account you can still qualify for a free trial at your business. Please specify in the comments section that you are an existing Linode personal account customer.

What happens after my trial period ends?

You must spend your service credits during the trial period with Linode.  Unused service credits will automatically expire, and we will charge you our standard rates for any service over your credit amount.  For more information on our prices, visit our Pricing page.
