    Question: Where is the datacenter located?

    NullHead, according to https://fivebean.com/hosting/:

    Our shared web hosting servers are located in the Chicago Board of Trade building in downtown Chicago, Illinois. Our network offers premium bandwidth via Level3, Savvis, Sprint and Cogent (to just name a few) and each server has a 100mpbs Uplink.

    I did that. I got a VPS about 2 weeks later. The connection speed was so worth it

    The hardware in my server is much better than that offered though

    I signed up for a VPS a few days ago and I have to say, I made a good choice in going with Fivebean. I ordered the VPS and it was completely setup and ready to go in under 10 minutes. The speed is awesome, the MoxieVM is simple to use, and I dont have to host everything myself

    I did have to do 2 things to get everything working properly. The first was adding the hostname to the /etc/hosts file. The second was reinstalling the locales package with apt-get install --reinstall language-pack-en. Other then that... perfect!

    Cracker price for sure UG (ruddy amazin really) but, somehow, I'm not keen on a VPS hoster that also does shared .. silly, probably.

    And it would be tough to leave the Linode community, even though I have a free VPS on tap as well from one of my folks .. they have served me well. And is there anyone in the biz quite in the league of them or Slicehost?

    But what I'd really like to know, is this 'ere:-

    How does OpenVZ square up to Zen these days? Any sysmins out there to throw in tuppence?

    For those of you who are VPS noobs, (or who want to look at Nginx which outperforms Apache substantially), check out my 40+ (groooowing and ongooooing) VPS Bible, which takes a blank box and turns it into a cute-as machine.

    .. As well as Nginx web server, those tuts include a full after-build admin guide (no CP with Nginx). It uses Hardy 8.04 LTS for now, with special WordPress caching & whatnot.

    *** Set Up an Unmanaged VPS (4 Newbies) .. The V-P-S Bible ***

    I'm soon to benchmark Cherokee (user-friendly lighty-type server, looks very nice), so you may be interested to keep an eye out for that too.

    My general rule is:

    If I need raw speed with low resource impact, OpenVZ.
    If I need a robust system for handling demanding requests, Xen, absolutely.

    I've seen OpenVZ do some weird stuff like take 3000+ ms to serve a web page. That's not necessarily typical, but it was weird, and I've never seen it happen with Xen before.

    Therefore, I'd rather use Xen for most of my projects. This deal is great, absolutely. It's very, very cheap for a VPS and I think it justifies the cost of using OpenVZ over Xen.

    I've been thinking about finally getting a VPS for myself. Started looking around for one, puked on the prices of other options (such as GoDaddy and 1and1, then remembered this thread

    I have to say, these prices are a steal compared to those corperate giants

    A big thanks to U-G
