Transferring from Google Cloud Server to Linode VPS

Because I am a newbie I set up a Validator node for a digital currency on Google Cloud.
(I chose Google Cloud as the path of least resistance at that time.)

Now that I am gaining a better understanding I would like to migrate over to Linode.
Before I attempt this my thought was to get the Validator software uploaded via Github to Linode and then transfer over my coins.

Anyone have a similar thought or experience?
As an fyi, if/as this gets accomplished the group here would benefit from exploring the passive income opportunities provided by setting up Validator nodes.
