Creating VPS through a Virtualizor Software in a Dedicated Server


As we all know that virtualizor is a powerful web-based VPS (Virtual Private Server) Control Panel. Users can arrange and operate VPS on servers with a single click. It supports OpenVZ, Xen PV, Xen HVM, XenServer, Proxmox, Virtuozzo, LXC, and Linux KVM virtualization. VPS users can open, stop, reopen, and manage their VPS using very advanced web-based GUI.


Now I'm going to tell you how to create VPS (Virtual Private Server) through virtualizor software in a dedicated server.

  • yum / apt-get

  • Storage to form the VPS (DomUs) disks

Notes:-
