    I want to buy a server, but I want to ask about three things

    I want to buy a server, but I want to ask about three things
    the first:
    1- "Unlimited traffic with 1 GB bandwidth", I want to clarify this phrase, meaning that the bandwidth is only 1 GB per month !?
    Or 1 GB bandwidth at the same time ? or what???
    I want to know the monthly bandwidth value ???

     

    2- Also if I want to upgrade some features like ram or cpu can i do that ??? and how will calculate the cost??

     

    3- Is support available at all times or should I subscribe to "Fully Managed Support" ???

    Hi @Orman Thanks for posting. I believe what this means is that GoDaddy will not limit the amount of traffic to your server, unless the bandwidth exceeds 1GB. Essentially think of it as a the door into a large store. Only a certain amount of people can enter the store at a same time. In this case, the size of that door is 1GB.

     

    Also, keep in mind that while GoDaddy may not place limits on the traffic, there are physical limits to how much traffic a Dedicated Server can handle, just like there are limits to how many customers can fit inside a store at the same time. 

     

    However, I will double check to make sure this is accurate and not just a typo as @PL281 mentioned. 

     

    EDIT: FWIW I confirmed that this is correct. Our marketing team is looking at changing the description so others won't have the same confusion.

    1) I believe what you are seeing is 1 GB Ram  - Memory - Not bandwidth

    2) You can upgrade to additional memory or CPUs - the cart system will tell you the delta in cost before you check out - but it roughly the prorated amount between the two plans

     

    3) Self Managed vs Fully Managed come down to what you need help & support with - If you need help installing and configuring command line packages vs doing it on your own - that is the difference between the plans.

    I finally found that text on the India specific branding of the Dedicated Server Page. I would suggest that it is a typo. 

     

    If I had to guess that is possible referring to 1gb burst caching.  via the US portal (you can change the county in the lower left of the site) it doesn't have that language.
