What is the difference between KVM and OpenVZ? Which is best for me?

KVM is more for advanced users since it requires an installation of a OS from an ISO where OpenVZ uses templates (pre-built images). You can install your KVM VPS from a template as well if that is more convenient for you. OpenVZ is better for new users because there is less complexity and you can start with smaller plans and grow into them. KVM does offer much better performance and can be treated more like a real server would (multitasking, processing, caching, etc...).

OpenVZ is easier to setup and jump right into things because we offer a handful of OS templates.
