    I would like to try out virtualization, but I'm not sure how it would fit into my current networking setup. At the moment, I have one server, and the appropriate ports are forwarded to that server. How would this work with using VPSs? I can only forward the port to one machine. How is the routing handled, and how does the VPS know, for example, which VPS a certain domain belongs to. I can't see this mentioned in the tutorials you've posted on OpenVZ, which is why I thought I'd ask.

    Many thanks in advance.

    There are several networking configurations available, i.e. in bridge networking each VPS has its own IP. You can create virtual switches to create more complex network schemes.
