Can I create a VPN server with DigitalOcean.?

I do believe that DigitalOccean is an awesome hosting provider available in the industry and is also an economical option. I am also using digitalOcean server from last two years. I have a wordpress based website which is hosted on DigitalOcean dedicated server and it’s been working fine for me. Although, I am not using the conventional server. Instead, I am using the managed digitalOcean server which is powered by Cloudways. Now, I want to set up a VPN on the remaining space of this server. But, I am not sure if it is possible or not. Please let me know how is this possible.
