Yes, that's the one.  Still with them (four years *today*), very happy
with the service.  Almost worked for them, but they're in New Jersey

Um, well, as has been pointed out, Linode doesn't host shells, they
host servers.  They're virtual servers, of course, not your own
machine.  Naturally, you are then able and allowed to do whatever.

By the way, calls to my phone number are routed through an Asterisk
server running on my virtual server at Linode, among other things.

I defer to Jordan re: home servers.
