Six Colors isn’t just sponsored by Linode. Six Colors is on Linode. This site (as well as Jason’s other site, The Incomparable) are run entirely on a Linode server in the company’s Dallas data center, one of nine Linode data centers spread across the world.

Linode lets you get up and running with a hosted Linux server in seconds. The tools are easy to understand, and you get to choose your resources and your Linux distro. And if you’re worried that having a dedicated server on the Internet is going to be pricey, don’t be—Linode plans start at just $5 per month.

Linode is great for people just starting out or for companies deploying complex systems. The network and hardware are fast, and they’re backed by fantastic 24/7 customer support. Linode guarantees 99.9% server uptime, so your server will always be there when you need it. It’s great for hosting databases, running a mail or Git server, operating apps, or even running a tech blog and podcast network.

Readers of Six Colors can use the offer code SIXCOLORS to get $20 toward any Linode plan, and there’s a seven-day money back guarantee, so there’s no risk to you.
