I am looking around to find an ISP that provides Xen VM, so I can run
whatever OS I want inside the rented guest VM.

A question: have anybody seen an ISP that prohibits to run nested
hypervisor (Xen in this case) inside the rented guest VM? Or they
usually allow us to do anything with our VM?

In case they are OK with that, I can install Xen inside the guest VM,
I plan to run several few VMs on Xen there, so my guest VM is more or
less like a normal physical machine hired from that ISP.

And in case your ISP doesnt allow that, that would be interesting to
know the reason. Please share that if you can.
