It is not entirely clear from the context of your message if the hosted
server you reference is dedicated hardware or a virtual machine.  So,
the meaning of "KVM" is ambiguous.  It could refer to kernel virtual
machine, in which case the access sounds like it would be direct console
access to the host system on which the guest runs.  Or it could refer to
keyboard-video-mouse, in which case it sounds like they are offering you
out of band access to a piece of dedicated hardware.

Could you clarify the meaning you intended to communicate?
