With all these downtimes for the free servers on x10hosting, I'm considering going premium service. This VPS service has me interested though so I'd like to know what can I do with it? Is it like a resellers account?

I don't know if you can re-sell hosting. But, short of anything against the TOS, you can do whatever you want with it, install whatever software you want, run whatever programs you want. It's your server (at least, part of it)

Basically, it's like getting a shell.

You have to install all the programs you want on it manually. x10 just gives you whatever OS you would like, and you use it however you want (as long as you comply with the TOS)

Note: If you plan on using it for a website, you MUST install Apache, mySQL, and PHP. (Depending on your needs)
