      Stop Further Billing

      To prevent additional charges from accruing and stop further billing, you can remove any paid services from your account or cancel your account entirely.

      Remove Services

      Linode services are provided without a contract or commitment. This means that you can remove them from your account at any time. Here are instructions for removing a Compute Instance:

      1. Log in to the
        Cloud Manager and select Linodes from the sidebar menu.
      2. Locate the Compute Instance you wish to delete.
      3. Expand the corresponding more options ellipsis menu and click Delete.
      4. Select Delete Linode in the confirmation box that appears.

      If you wish to delete other services, follow the links below:


      Removing a service from your account makes its data irretrievable. In the case of a Compute Instance, any corresponding Backup service is also deleted and you will no longer be able to restore from those backup snapshots.

      If you would like to preserve your data before removing a service from your account, you need to create an external backup. You may use the suggestions in our
      Backing Up Your Data guide for some examples of how to do this.

      When removing a Compute Instance from your account that has been active for at least 24 hours, a
      Recovery Image is automatically created. To learn how to deploy this image, see
      Deploy an Image to a New Compute Instance.

      There is a very small chance that Linode Support can restore your data outside of these circumstances. The sooner you reach out to Linode Support, the more likely this can occur. Please open
      a Support ticket to explore this possibility.

      Cancel Account

      If you no longer wish to use any Linode services, you can also cancel your account. When an account is cancelled, you may receive one final bill. This bill includes all charges that have already accrued during the billing period. See
      Cancel Your Account to learn more.

      View Invoices and Payment History

      All of your billing history, including previous invoices and payments, is accessible within the
      Cloud Manager on the Billing & Payment History section within the Billing Info page (see
      Accessing Billing Information). By default, all transactions (both invoices and payments) from the last 6 months are displayed. To customize this, use the dropdown menus on the top right of this section.

      To view an itemized invoice, find the invoice row on the list and click the corresponding invoice number. This opens up a new page that displays each service that was active during the billing period, along with the additional details listed below:

      • Description: The type of service and the unique label you’ve given it.
      • From: The date the service started billing during this billing cycle. This could either be the date and time this billing cycle started or the date and time the service was added to the account.
      • To: The date the service ended billing during this billing cycle. This could either be the date and time this billing cycle ended or the date and time the service was removed from the account.
      • Quantity: The number of hours the service is being billed.
      • Unit Price: The hourly rate for this service.
      • Amount: The cost for this service excluding taxes.
      • Taxes: The taxes that are charged for this service.
      • Total: The cost for this service including taxes.

      Downloading Invoices (PDF and CSV)

      An invoice or payment can be downloaded as either a PDF or a CSV file. To do this, open the invoice within the Cloud Manager and select either the Download CSV or Download PDF button.
