Before we jump to creating VPS on a dedicated server, let's understand both servers in detail.
Using the following procedure, you can build your own VPS server out of a dedicated server:
Step 1: Check if the physical server can meet the hardware requirements of the hypervisor. A hypervisor is an OS that manages virtual servers and needs explicit hardware to install.
Step 2: Save your data or application configuration running on the current physical server.
Step 3: Install the hypervisor by putting the disc in the reader.
Step 4: Boot the hypervisor console and use the user manual for creating a virtual machine. You can also personalize and increase/decrease the RAM, CPU power, storage, and memory to meet your business needs.
Step 5: You can install the OS by using an image of the disk stored on your hard drive. Moreover, configure and install the application.
Step 6: Repeat the whole process for all the applications you need to be installed on the virtual server.
This is the step-by-step guide for creating VPS on a dedicated server.
