Probably both are true.

Reading step three of the virtual tour does not say that the ip rules
are 'within' your virtual server. Only that the rules that apply to
your virtual server can be controlled by a web interface (on the host
system) most likely.

That would be fairly straight forward thing to do, just write
rule chain(s) for a particular IP address. Constrain the web update
to do dynamic rules on the rule chain for a particular customer.

For instance, start with the dynamic rule handling of PSAD, be creative
with the chain naming, add a web interface, etc.
