    More info is needed in order to answer your question:

    - which OS is used on your dedicated server?
    - which OS will be used on VPS?
    - what are hardware specs of the server?
    - is it for personal use or for production?
    - etc. etc.

    More info you provide - better suggestions you will get.

    The specs are
    2GB RAM
    200GB HDD
    100MBIT
    Fedora as the OS

    I want to use it as personal use.

    Go read up on installing xen or kvm. Both are really easy to set up, a child could do it.

    Hardware specs are not very high. With this amount of RAM you can start max 1-2 tiny VPS servers.

    XEN/KVM are good, but for personal use I would recommend https://www.virtualbox.org/

    To build this server into a VPS Node you will need much more than 2 GB of RAM.

    Now as to what you can use to virtualize your server, there are a wide range of products that you can choose from -

    Xen, KVM, OpenVZ, and Virtuozzo are some of the basic virtualization platforms. You can also use VMWare and OnApp, but that is a bit high level and I believe would be outside your need at this time.

    Since you are using a lower end server I would suggest one of the OpenSournce solutions so that you can install it, mess around with the application to get a feel for it. The great thing about the OpenSource ones is, if you don't like it delete it and try a new one.

    Your dedicated server itself looks only as big as a decent vps would be. I would suggest you at least add more ram to it. Though if you really want your server should be ok with creating and running upto 4 small sized vps s on it. (Depending on what you gonna use each for and how much resource each will need).

    i like virtualizing because it makes it easy to reboot a system without bringing everything down. also in the future it helps for expanding. way easier to move the VMs over to a faster machine in the future if he upgrades.

    You want to make sure you have enough physical RAM to cover the allocated virtual RAM you are using at first. Larger VPS Nodes can get away with overselling as they should not be clocking the entire memory usage 100% of the time, but for smaller Nodes it is easier to get to that overload point. So with 1-2 VPS make sure you can cover the virtual memory with physical, and 1-2 for your OS and you should be good to go and grow for a bit. Then just add more resources to the Dedicated Server and then expand your virtual limit and your good to go

    Anyone know the command lines to install kvm or xen on my server as the one online always gives me an error.

    Does your hardware support this type of virtualization?
