1) The first and foremost thing you will need to consider a server before the setup , that you need to figure out as to how many VPS’s will you setup on a dedicated server along with calculation of your dedicated server profit. You can check the Dedicated server specifications and prices from the following link:-

Following is the calculation:
If your dedicated server node costs: £200/Month
You can create 20 VPS’s on dedicated server and price each VPS at £30.00/Month. So that means 20 VPS’s x £30/Month = £600.00/Month
2) Next step is to opt for a Virtualization Software you want to install on your dedicated server. If you opt for OpenVZ, there will be no licensing cost however, if you opt for Virtuozzo Power Panel, following is the VPS licensing structure:-
VZ 1VElicense= £11/month
VZ 3VElicense= £20/month
VZ 5VElicense= £27/month
VZ 20VE license= £48/month
VZ 30VE license= £61/month
VZ 40VE license= £75/month
VZ 50VE license= £88/month
VZ 60VE license= £101/month
VZ 70VE license= £109/month
VZ 80VE license= £115/month
VZ 90VE license= £122/month
VZ 100VE license= £129/month
for example if you want to setup 20 VPS’s, you will require 20 VE licenses. That means, £200 + £48 = £248.00USD Per Month. In-order to manage your VPS’s you will also need to install VZMC on your Dedicated server node.
