Here is the steps.

First go to the following directory which has the templates.
cd /vz/template/cache/

Now create the vps with VEID 10 with template for debian 64  bit ( you can choose the one you want )
vzctl create 10 --ostemplate debian-5.0-x86_64

Enabling onboot
vzctl set 10 --onboot yes --save

Adding the default ip
vzctl set 10 --ipadd IP_ADDRESS --save

Setting name servers
vzctl set 10 --nameserver --save
vzctl set 10 --nameserver --save

Setting the diskspace. Here 50Gb
vzctl set 10 --diskspace 50G --save

Setting the RAM and Bust RAM
vzctl set 10 --vmguarpages 4G:8G --save

Starting vps
