Events RSS Feed, Emails, and Profile Protection

April 5, 2012 3:05 pm

Some of you may have noticed a few changes to the Linode Manger over the past few weeks, most notably that accessing your “My Profile” and the “Account -> Users & Permissions” subtab now require password re-authentication.

Linode Manager Brute Force Protection

1:35 pm

We have implemented sophisticated brute force protection for Linode Manager user accounts that combines a time delay on failed attempts, forced single threading of log in attempts from a given remote address, and automatic tarpitting of requests from attackers.

DNS AXFR ACLs and IPv6 masters

April 4, 2012 1:30 pm

Two new DNS Manager updates – AXFR ACLs and IPv6 masters for slave zones.

Introducing the Linode Backup Service

May 4, 2010 1:55 pm

You do have backups, right? Yeah, we thought so. Backups are a good thing, but they’re tedious to configure and monitor.

Bandwidth Pooling

February 8, 2010 9:13 pm

While we’ve had network transfer/bandwidth pooling in our internal accounting for some time, it’s never been displayed in the Linode Manager — until now.  At the bottom of the main Linodes tab, you’ll now see a new section that displays the cumulative network transfer quotas for all your Linodes for this month, how much you’ve […]
