  Old  Root with VPS?

Hi Guys,

I dont really know much about VPS, but this is my main question, do you get root access on it? Allowing me to create reseller accounts, etc.

Also, how many max people can there be on the VPS? and Does this mean there are that many root accounts?

Does each part of the server have a different control panel. So say 2 people were on the same VPS, one wanted cPanel, and one wanted DirectAdmin. Would it be possible?

Sorry if these questions seem dumb, but I'm just trying to find out about VPS.

VPS is a bunch of virtual macines running on a server. Each account gets a certian amount of processor and ram, they all run without connection to eachother. It looks like a dedicated server in pretty much every way. You do get root access to your instance.

How many accounts per server varies by a lot of factors. The better the hardware the more accounts it can hold, different plans provide different sizes and most cheaper hosts oversell quite a few times over.

VPS is a good way to get root access to a server without paying for all the hardware like you would a dedicated server. This is ideal for solutions that need custom software but don't use lots of resources.
