Like many cloud hosting providers Linode offers various pricing plans. In the Standard Plans (their classic plans) they have the “Linode 2GB” which is $10/mo, 2TB transfer, 25GB of SSD storage, etc. Another example is the “Linode 8GB” which is $40/mo, 5TB transfer, 160GB SSD storage, etc. Some people seem to have been confused so here it is, a “Nanode 1GB” is a “Linode 1GB” with a different name.
