Does Linode require a credit card?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 1:11 pm

Linode can be a great alternative to traditional hosting providers like HostGator, GoDaddy, and 1and1. However, like any other hosting provider, Linode does require a credit card to sign up. This is to ensure that Linode has sufficient funds to cover any potential server failures or other unexpected costs. In the event of a credit card failure, Linode will work with the cardholder to get a new card or refund the money.

PRO TIP: Linode does not require a credit card for account creation, but you will need to provide a valid credit card in order to add services to your account.

However, there is no guarantee that this will happen. If you are concerned about using a credit card with Linode, we recommend looking into other hosting providers.
