    Welcome to vpslink btw
    First of all a link1 will be a bit low for what you are wanting from the questions below,


    1. Where should i upload the files? - This depends what you are using, usually if its apache then you would use SCP and upload it to /var/www/ (this is the default location usually)
    2. Can i install Cpanel on my own. - Webmin or something similar yes..but the low memory of link1 will most likly cause you some issues
    3. How to make my domain point towards my vps - If you want to use vpslink's dns hosting you point ur domain to the nameservers given in the dns config and then you configure it from the my.vpslink.com controlpanel
    4. How to make the nameservers - For your own nameservers you need at least 2 servers.
    5. Can i install Php, mysql, etc. - Yes but again the low memory will hinder you badly
    6. Can i use this vps for ptc websites.

    WHM / CPanel are not supported on link-[123].

    Try the new plan advisor questionnaire to try and match up the correct plan with your requirements.

    VPS is an acronym for, "Virtual Private Server" For more information, please see the VPSlink FAQ - VPS Hosting FAQ

    You upload files to your VPS and control the server from any location with a routable, working connection to the Internet.

    Where ever you'd like. This is the beauty of owning your very own virtual private server!

    Not sure. From my understanding, a Link3 or better is needed for CPanel, and VPSlink takes care of the installation. Could be wrong...

    You're able to, yes. Not sure whether or not you can. Only you know the answer to such a question..
