Let's Start VPS (Virtual Private Server)

Hello again, after a long time no manage even visit this server, i have something new but old stuff for some people there, maybe some of you know better about VPS rather than me, hope all master that visit here can share their knowledge to help people with limit knowledge like me.. :P,
Okey, Let's Start, what is VPS? according to VPS  is a virtual machine sold as a service by an Internet hosting service. A VPS runs its own copy of an operating system, and customers have superuser-level access to that operating system instance, so they can install almost any software that runs on that OS. For many purposes they are functionally equivalent to a dedicated physical server, and being software-defined, are able to be much more easily created and configured. They are priced much lower than an equivalent physical server, but as they share the underlying physical hardware with other VPSs, performance may be lower, and may depend on the workload of other instances on the same hardware node. That's explanation is belong for wikipedia "theoritically" no offense :P.

My explanation is simple, VPS is similar like borrow your friend computer, install Operating System (OS) as you like, using your friend connection, and do whatever you like... hmmm... at this point we talk VPS, but sound like Dedicated Server, confuse?? not now, if you rent Dedicated Server, you can rent again VPS to your friend or your customer, in other word, VPS stay inside Dedicated Server, so what can i do with VPS? Many things, like, Hosting a Website, VPN, SSH, Proxy Server, Personal Radio Station, Leech Torrent, and other things.
