Cheaper way to go VPS: Use Xen and webmin

This blogger details out a simple way to use Xen for webmaster's using VPS. You can start up your own ISP that way!

Suppose you have a server that has a Linux Operating System and you would like several people to share as if everyone had a physical server machine. In this situation, you need virtualization of the hardwares on your real physical server so that everyone hosted can manage “theirs”. With Xen, you can have multiple operating system and services running simultaneously. This is how Xen works to make VPS possible.

In addition to Xen, Virtuozzo Power Panel (VZPP) and VMware also can virtualize servers. Because of the good support for commercial use, VZPP and VMware are more widely used. However, the license of Xen is GPL, which means free for use. So why pay for virtualization when there is free software available out there?


The rest here. (I just hope that the content is original and not copied from any Linux Mag , like I am seeing lately!)
