There are some industries that are well suited for GoDaddy VPS hosting, including:

News websites: These types of sites typically generate a lot of traffic and can peak at any time throughout the day.

Virtual Hosting companies: These companies are suitable for GoDaddy VPS as they need to scale their resources as their client numbers grow. Instead of buying a dedicated server that may not be needed until a distant point in the future, GoDaddy’s VPS packages can continuously meet their needs with a lower investment.

Gaming websites: Since GoDaddy never overloads their servers, RAM is always available. With up to 8,000 GB/month GoDaddy customers will have enough bandwidth to sleep soundly at night.

Basics - What you need to know

GoDaddy is a trusted name when it comes to VPS hosting. They’ve been in the industry a long time and are one of the most - if not the most - visible brands in the industry. From Super Bowl advertisements to celebrity endorsements, their goal is to stand out from the rest, and their services, customer support, and low prices certainly deliver.

Data Centre
GoDaddy’s data centres feature the latest technology, fully redundant power and air conditioning systems, advanced fire protection, and 24/7 monitored security. With multiple data centres in the USA, Europe, and Asia, your website will function at optimal speeds regardless of your location.

Power Management
GoDaddy features multiple power paths to its data centre facilities, which means that if one supply fails, the other will maintain power. This ensures that all systems stay up and running, and with your Go Daddy VPS hosting plan, you don’t lose sales due to downtime.

Physical Security
27/7 dedicated prevention systems protect the network and ensure that the connection is not physically interrupted. There’s round the clock state-of-the-art security technology with on-site security personnel to protect GoDaddy’s data centres.

Service Offerings

Service Offerings

General Managed Services - Bundles
GoDaddy VPS offers 5 packages for Linux operating systems, ranging from Economy (at $29.99/month) to Ultimate (at $149.99/month).

Windows plans start from Value (at $39.99/month) and progress to Ultimate (at $149.99/month).

All Go Daddy VPS hosting plans include features like free quick setup, at least 3 dedicated IPs, FTP access, and free advertising credits. As you progress to the higher plans, the amount of RAM, storage, and bandwidth increases.

Security and Updates
Standard support is included with all plans, which includes help with any GoDaddy-related server technical issues. For help with more advanced technical issues, users can upgrade to the Assisted Service Plan, which includes help with initial server setup, security, patching services, monitoring, and emergency services.

Backup Services
There are two backup services available with Go Daddy VPS: an FTP Backup Account and Managed Backups. An FTP Backup Account gives you the ability to create your own backup of your files and save them to an off-site location. This feature allows you to restore data whenever you want. However, since FTP backups aren’t managed by GoDaddy, users are responsible for their own backup maintenance.

Managed Backups are completed by GoDaddy and only include non-system data not in use on your server. Any files in use will not be backed up. It’s important to note that Managed Backups are not mirrors of your server. In order to restore data, a request must be submitted to GoDaddy.
