Can I update the kernel on my server?

The kernel on VPS servers can not be upgraded as they are running on Virtuozzo platform with a shared kernel. Your VPS has the latest stable Linux kernel version for Virtuozzo platform. In order to have full control over the server's kernel we advice choosing a Cloud Server, which would run on a KVM platform with many customization options possible - http://www.host1plus.com/cloud-servers/

Why KVM based virtualization is more advanced than Virtuozzo you can read using below provided links:
