Is Linode an American company?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 1:02 pm

Linode is an American company, headquartered in Dallas, Texas. It was founded in 2006, and provides cloud hosting, domain registration, and VoIP services.

As of December 2017, it had over 2 million customers. In 2018, Linode was named one of the fastest growing technology companies in the United States. .

PRO TIP: Linode is an American company, but it is not affiliated with the US government. Any information you share with Linode may be subject to US laws and regulations, including the Patriot Act.

Some have raised questions about the company’s American status. Linode is registered in the state of Nevada, and maintains a presence in other states as well.

However, it is not clear whether Linode is really an American company, or if it is effectively based in a number of countries with American-sounding names. The company has not been forthcoming about its true location.

All of this may be academic, as Linode has been growing rapidly and is now one of the leading providers of cloud hosting and VoIP services in the United States.
