How do I start Linode?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 1:06 pm

There are a few ways to get started with Linode, depending on your level of experience and technical proficiency. If you’re a first-time user, we recommend reading our Getting Started guide and then checking out our Quick Start guide.

If you have experience setting up a server or are comfortable working with a command line, you can follow our installation guides for Linux, Windows, or Mac.

PRO TIP: If you are not familiar with Linux or virtual servers, Linode may not be the best platform for you. Their getting started guide assumes a certain level of knowledge and can be difficult to follow for beginners. Additionally, their customer support is not as robust as some of the other options out there.

Once you have your Linode up and running, be sure to explore our community features and check out our tutorials for more in-depth information on using Linode.

If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to reach out to us at We hope this guide has helped you get started with Linode!.
