    It seems every provider I ask about VPS accounts is running parallels virtuozzo to divide up the server.

    This is my quest to become parallels, plesk and virtuozzo free lol

    Anyway I thought, and maybe my misunderstanding is that is what WHM was for or did?

    WHM is for server administration of a single cPanel/WHM server. It is not a VPS provisioning tool.

    There are other options like OpenVZ but Virtuozzo has GUI while the later is command line only. incidentally they are from the same people.

    Other providers are available too but less well known.

    Well maybe I should just eat it and go for a dedicated server.....

    After the horrible situation with Plesk I don't want to have anything to do with Parallels, their software, coders and user interfaces.

    other options

    xen / vmware /

    even if you get a dedi box - might be worth breaking it apart a little.

    centos 5.1 / redhat / include xen out of the box.

    Nice post. Im actually looking to free myself as well completely from Parallels. That includes not even using OpenVZ.

    I suppose Xen works brilliant as far as I read for VPS. Problem is i cannot find a nice web interface for it besides HyperVM. Im really looking into running Cpanel VPS inside Xen. Wonder how other providers run Xen and Cpanel.

    It's easy, just set up a Xen VPS and install cPanel. Xen is an excellent choice. As for a "graphical interface," you don't really need that for Xen itself. Xen is the provisioning/virtualization tool. Once you set up a VPS load whatever else you want on it, just as if it was a dedicated server.
