Hosting Websites on Bare Minimum VPS/Dedicated Servers

Fivebean – $5 OpenVZ VPS with 128MB

Tags: , , Date/Time: May 5, 2009 @ 1:25 am, by LowEndAdmin

Fivebean.com Fivebean is a Michigan-based hosting provider with claims to have 10 year experience in the industry. Great looking, clean and Two-Oh-ish website. It also provides some cheap virtual server plans, when you apply the 50% discount coupon code that can be found on their website VPS50. That means their Bean plan will come down to $5/month, which gives you:

  • 128MB guaranteed/256MB burstable memory
  • 5GB storage
  • 100GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/HyperVM

Data center and hardware are spelt out clearly on ther site:

Our VPS hosting servers are located in the Databank building in Dallas, TX. We use only the best servers which consist of Intel Core 2 Quad Processors CPUs…

I like the fact that it lists out the VPS ratio so at least you know how many people are you competiting the resource with. 30 low-end Bean VPS on a single quad core CPU is actually not bad at all.

Update: Ryan from FiveBean email me about some special offer:

Mention lowendbox.com when signing up and receive an additional 100MB RAM and 10GB Disk Space.

Thank you!

  2. As mentioned above, when you sign up and select lowendbox.com on the order form and you will receive an additional 100MB RAM and 10GB Disk Space.

    The “VPS Bean” package would look like this.

    228MB guaranteed/356MB burstable memory
    15GB storage
    100GB/month data transfer
    OpenVZ/HyperVM

  5. Yeah I had a Fivebean VPS for a while as well, and the new moxieVM is pretty good (much easier to use than HyperVM).

  6. I signed up with Fivebean recently, as a new customer the signup process and first few days can make or break a company in the budget host class. Thus far my VPS has been fast, & support excellent. Lets hope this continues

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
