Okay,,,,

Lets say I start a XS.

I use it and turn off in 10 mins.

On most VPSs you have a virtual harddisk that will remain after a reboot.

So questions:

Are they like VPS servers? Or are they Shells?
Do they have full internet access?
Bandwidth?

Hope someone can answer

Jack,
HI

If you are referring to the Public Cloud, then yes they are Virtualised Instances, with Internet Access. There is no traffic limit on the instances.

By instance are you referring to OVH's miniCloud? If so, yes it's full root access and full internet access (except port 25, SMTP).
